Guitar Methods

             The definition of a guitar is a flat-bodied stringed instrument with a long fretted neck that usually has six strings that are plucked with a pick or with fingers. That is the written definition, but the real definition comes from sound made by this amazing instrument. Most every style of music has the guitar as one of the primary sounds in songs. Some music is even composed with just guitar and no lyrics. There is a major difference in the guitar methods used for the many types of music that we listen to. From Hard Rock to slow Country, guitars will always be the most widely known instrument. Specifically, Rock and Roll music uses guitar to its fullest range, by using all methods of the guitar. Rock is not music that everyone enjoys, but when it comes to guitar playing, it tops them all.
             Most guitars are built with six strings, but some may have seven or even twelve. The string names for a standard six string are as follows, starting with the top string and going down, low E, A, D, G, B, and high E. The top strings have a lower pitch sound then the lower strings, which perform higher sounds. Guitars have frets which are used to show where the fingers go on the instrument; there can be from 21-24 frets on the guitar depending on what kind it is. Depending on what is played, the guitar may either be electric or acoustic. Electrics need an amp for any sound to be heard and are made up wood, metal, and wiring which enable the guitar to be heard through electronics when running to the amplifier. Acoustics on the other hand do not need an amp to be heard and are made of wood. Without these components on any guitar the sound will not perform and "booing" will become a familiar sound to performers.
             Southern music such as country is loved by many people because of its lyrics and repetition of sound. For the most part country music wouldn't be possible if it hadn't been for the guitar.
