Learn The Difference Between Guitars The Spanish guitar is a type of guitar usually used for playing “classical" music and originated from Spain. The guitar is made of soft boozel wood with a large, hollow sound-box with a shape similar to of the female body, which is probably why so many male guitarists give their guitars female aliases. The guitar’s long fret-board is made of soft wood, and the head is made to produce very fine tuning. Historically, the Spanish guitar was strung with pig’s gut strings that gave a singly, gentle, slightly soft sound. The Spanish guitar is made for any music pieces but particularly suited to sweet old classical music.
The Flamenco Guitar can be compared to the classical guitar: The one main difference between the Flamenco Guitar and a classical is that the fretboard of the Flamenco guitar is even wider and narrower.
The Acoustic Guitar is also very similar in comparison to the Spanish guitar. The main differences are that its fretboard is smaller and built with more endurance to cope with greater tension, the sound-box is sometimes slightly bigger and the strings
are made of nylon or steel. The sound these make is smaller and more "crisp". The acoustic guitar is very popular with folk musicians on both sides of the Pacific, who have little problem playing complex finger-picking styles on them. IF you are interested in playing rhythms, doing a lot of heavy strumming, like
your first steps in rock, like using a variety of tunings or if you
wanting to play jazz and blues rock and you give the acoustic guitar
a serious consideration.
Electric guitars need to be plugged into an electric amplifier for any sound to be heard.
Electric guitars are usually completely solid and can be extremely heavy. When you are
playing this type of guitar wear a comfortable shoulder strap. Most electric guitars have a thin, hollow sound-box in which the electric gadgetry is concealed.
Electric guitars are usually more lightweight, and can make a variety of sounds from "classical" through
to a Stratocaster. This type off guitar is used for rock, pop concerts and playing
in venues where loud amplification is needed.
The bass guitar comes with
usually less than 4 strings and frequently with a fretless neck. The tuning of
the bass guitar is the same as for the bottom four strings of a electric guitar
but down one octave, and the strings are thus heavier and thicker. The bass is
used for laying down thick deep sounds and mainly used for the rhythm and keeping
with the drums. For instance, in some rock bands the bassist rather than the
drummer holds the band's playing together.
