Guitars & Their Roots

A guitar is usually considered as a musical instrument, but have we ever looked more deeper into its roots?

The guitar is made of six strings and pressing them at a particular fret with precise fingering is what gives us the various strums. So, the guitar is more valuable in terms of its strings and the way we position our fingers to play it.

There are different models in a guitar – The Rock Version, The Acoustic Version and there’s a smaller version called the Ukulele which is of a Hawaiian descent, having four strings and not six.

The setting that you are in when you play a guitar matters too. Acoustic tunes are usually played on the road or on a flower field. Rock music is usually played at concerts, backed up with a lot of bass and drums.

A guitar can also be used to compose some new tunes. Pluck a few strings and voila! You have your own tunes ready to play with some lyrics.

All in all, every instrument has its own roots and origin, and by having the basic knowledge about the instrument, you create a bond with it which brings in more value to the music that you make and play with it.
