A Guitar is a fretted instrument that usually has six strings. It is played by both hands by plucking or strumming strings using a pick or your fingers. While doing this you simultaneous fret strings with your other hand. The sound is projected either acoustically by the hollow body of the guitar or electrically through an amplifier/speaker. Acoustic Guitars have three different main types; the classical guitar which is nylon stringed;the steel stringed acoustic guitar; and Jazz or Archtop guitar. Electric Guitars were introduced in the 1930s and use an amplifier and loudspeaker to amplifier to sound loud enough for the performers and audience to hear. There are a wide variety of effects pedals for Electric Guitars which modify the sound. The amplifier played a key role in the development of rock and blues music.
The Guitar as we know it is thought to have originated from Spain in the early 16th century. It is derived from the guitarra latina which was a late medieval instrument. Early Guitars were much narrower and deeper than the Guitar as it is now and it had a much less pronounced waist. The Guitar originally had four sets of strings. It had three double and the top was single. Early guitars were tuned CFAD. A fifth set of strings was added before 1600 and by the late 18th century it a sixth string was added. By 1800 all the double strings were replaced with single strings and the turning was EADGBE which is still the standard tuning today. The Classical Guitar didn’t appear until the 19th century after the innovations of Antonio Torres. Variants included 12-stringed, or double-course, the South American charango and the Mexican jarana, both small five-course guitars.
