Guitar and Bass

The guitar is the most popular musical instrument, with ancient roots that adapt readily to a wide variety of musical styles. It typically has six strings, but four, seven, eight, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen and eighteen-string guitars also exist. The size and shape of the neck and the base of the guitar also vary, producing a variety of sounds. The four main types of guitars are the electric guitar, the bass guitar, the classical guitar, and the acoustic guitar. Sometimes the last two are put in the same category.

Guitars are recognized as one of the primary instruments in rock, jazz, blues, classical, flamenco and many forms of pop music. Guitars may be played acoustically, where the tone is produced by the vibration of the strings and modulated by the hollow body, or they may rely on an amplifier that can electronically manipulate tone. Such electric guitars were introduced in the 1930s, and they have continued to have a profound influence on popular culture since then.
