Guitars and related strings instruments are instruments on which strings are placed, which can be metal or nylon, but can also be made from natural animal intestines. Guitars usually have 6 strings installed. The sound is elicited by twitching with fingers, thimbles or a pick. The oscillation of the played strings is transmitted to the resonant fuselage, where it is acoustically amplified or converted through magnetic, microphone or piezo pantographs into an electrical signal, which is amplified in the amplifier and reproduced through speakers in the form of normal but much louder sound.
The basic groups of guitars are:
- acoustic guitars (using metal strings),
- electric guitars (using metal strings),
- classical guitars (using nylon strings or strings made from animal intestines).
Acoustic guitars are further divided into acoustic guitars and electrified acoustic guitars. The latter have a built-in sound amplification system and usually also a preamplifier, where there is a control of the volume and color of the tone, and lately they also mostly have a built-in electronic tuner. Acoustic guitars are used in all genres of contemporary music, mostly in the role of accompaniment, and often also in the role of solo instruments.
When choosing the first guitar for beginners, it is worth mentioning that acoustic guitars have a relatively narrow and comfortable neck for playing with low-set strings, which facilitates practice in the first phase of learning. Otherwise, the metal strings are quite sharp and at the beginning the fingers suffer a lot due to the unhardened pads, and the training time should be adjusted accordingly and not exaggerated. However, when the pads of the fingers harden, these problems automatically disappear.
Electric guitars are divided into solid-body guitars with at least one or more magnetic pickups, electroacoustic (also hollowbody, jazz or oberkrain) guitars, which have a large hollow body similar to acoustic guitars, and have installed at least one or more magnetic pickups and semi-acoustic with a thinner hollow body, which may be completely hollow or have a solid block in the middle, and the upper and lower parts are hollow. Electric guitars experienced their greatest boom with the beginnings of rock'n'roll in the late 1950s and have been considered a virtually indispensable instrument in all genres of popular music ever since.
If you are a fan of any of the rocker styles as a beginner, an electric guitar will be the right place to start. There are even smaller 3/4 size electric guitars available for the youngest starters.
Classical guitars are mostly used in classical music, but they are also very widespread in popular music, especially in Latin American. They are divided into conventional non-electrified and electrified. Electrified classical guitars may also have some special features that are not otherwise used in conventional classical guitars, such as a cut-out on the lower part of the body for easier playing in the higher register, a thinner body than usual, a full body (solid-body) or even without body (silent classical guitars). A special branch of classical guitars are flamenco guitars, which derive from the design of modern classical guitars, but there are certain differences in the materials used, construction and sound. They are used to perform traditional Spanish flamenco music. Apart from 4/4, classical guitars are always available in smaller sizes (1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 7/8) so that even the youngest are never deprived of a suitable guitar.
Classical guitars are much more friendly to beginners with nylon strings than unhardened fingers than acoustic guitars with metal ones, and there are fewer "peeled" pads at the beginning. However, even on a classical guitar, the fingers harden over time. With a classical guitar, it is necessary to know that they have a much wider neck with a flat radius, which is more demanding for beginners and makes it a little harder to hold chords. However, if you get through the initial problems, your hand will adjust to the frettboard and playing will no longer cause any problems.
A special group are bass guitars, which have only four strings (exceptionally even more), tuned an octave lower than conventional guitars. They are divided into acoustic bass guitars and electric bass guitars. As a rule, acoustic bass guitars are also electrified, because due to the limited size of the body, the sound of an unamplified acoustic bass guitar is too weak to match the volume of louder acoustic instruments such as piano, accordion or wind and brass. The scale (length of the strings) is much longer with a bass guitar than with a regular guitar, because with a shorter scale and such a low tuning, the tension in the strings would be simply too low and there would be a deviation in volume and tuning of some played tones. An interesting feature of bass guitars is the design of the fingerboard: conventional bass guitars have bars placed on the fingerboard, but there is also a version without bars, ie t. i. "Fretless" bass guitar. They provide a similar playing technique as the double bass, although many bassists later created a completely unique sound on them.
Electric bass guitars are divided into solid-body bass guitars and hollowbody bass guitars, which are mostly the most similar to semi-hollowbody guitars. Both have at least one or more magnetic piskups mounted on the body. With the invention of the electric bass guitar, this instrument practically overnight replaced the previous role of the double bass in most genres of contemporary popular music.
Under other string instruments we can also mention traditional ones, such as e.g. banjo, mandolin and tamburitza.
