Everything about Guitar

The guitar is one of the most popular musical instruments all over the world. The instrument usually is built with six strings made either of steel or nylon. Initially, Guitar strings used to be made from animal intestines. Guitars with 4 and 12 strings are also popular. However, Guitars with 7, 8, 9 and 10 strings are considered rare. Guitar belongs to the chordophone family, traditionally constructed from wood and strung with either nylon, gut or steel strings. The instrument is usually differentiated from other chordophones by its construction and tuning.

Types of Guitars

There are three main types of Guitars - Classical Guitar with nylon-strings, Acoustic guitars with steel-strings and Electric guitars with magnetic-pickup.
  • Classical Guitar - Classical Guitar is also known as nylon-string guitar or Spanish guitar. It is made of wood with strings made from gut or nylon and has 12 frets.

  • Acoustic Guitars - Acoustic Guitar is a guitar that produces sound from its string when strummed or plucked with a pick or with the finger. Unlike the electric guitar, acoustic guitar transmits the vibration of the strings to the air instead of relying on electronic amplification.

  • Electric Guitars - It is a kind of guitar that uses one or more pickups to convert the vibrations into electrical signals. When a player strums, picks, taps, and finger picks the strings, electric guitars produce vibrations.


Guitar for Beginners

Thinking to play the Guitar often fills new learners with enthusiasm. While the initial excitement will fade away for many as playing the Guitar needs a lot of hard work and dedication. Choosing the right guitar goes a long way in helping you progress in learning guitar.
