The guitar is an amazing instrument. It's so popular that you can find it almost everywhere you go.
Somewhere in that music you're listening to--in your car, on TV, your mobile device, at the grocery store--there is the sound of the guitar. The guitar--especially the electric guitar--is also the signature instrument of rock bands. And what would Country Music be without the guitar?!

1. The guitar is extremely versatile. It sounds amazing just played by itself, and it is perfect as an accompaniment for a singer, or as part of a band.
2. Part of its versatility also is that it's easily portable, even for kids.
3. The guitar comes in many different sizes, which makes it a great choice for guitar students of varying body sizes and ages. Yes, there is a size for younger kids (ages 6 and up)!
4. There are several different types of guitars with very different sound qualities. On a basic level, we distinguish between acoustic guitars (nylon strings or steel strings) and electric guitars. When plucking a string on an acoustic guitar, sound is produced by the resonating body of the guitar. An electric guitar, on the other hand, produces sound through electronic amplification and special sound effects.
To match your musical passions, there are several different guitar families to represent different musical genres.
About Different Guitar Styles
The Classical Guitar is the guitar of choice for those who love the classical guitar repertory, which covers certain styles of guitar music composed from the 1400's all the way through the 20th century. The Classical Guitar is a wooden instrument with nylon strings.
As the modern descendant of the Classical Guitar, the Steel String Guitar is also an acoustic guitar. However, it has steel strings for a much brighter and louder sound. It has become popular as an important instrument for blues, country, bluegrass and folk music styles.
The Electric Guitar (and Bass Guitar), on the other hand, consists of a solid, relatively heavy body with thick metal strings. It can produce an infinite variety of sounds, sound effects, and sound volumes by electronic amplification and distortion. Rock, Pop, Heavy Metal, and anything in between and beyond thrives on the electric guitar.
Not mentioned nearly as often is the Jazz Guitar. Developed in the 1930s this guitar was made to give guitarists more sound volume in a Big Band. The Jazz Guitar is now a hollow-body guitar with an arched top (archtop body), steel strings, and electronic amplification. As the name suggests, it is the guitar of choice for playing jazz.
There is SO MUCH to explore when it comes to playing the guitar.
