The guitar is a fretted musical instrument that usually has six strings. Like many things otherwise, there are a boat-load of exceptions:
Like the War Guitar, which I have seen have anywhere from 11 to 18 strings, or even more!
Or how about cross breeds?
The harp guitar is pretty easy to understand. It makes some beautiful music.
On the other hand..
I have absolutely no idea what all the Hell this is supposed to be!
Wikipedia says “The sound is projected either acoustically, using a hollow wooden or plastic and wood box (for an acoustic guitar), or through electrical amplifier and a speaker (for an electric guitar). Again, this is not exactly true.
Take the Rogue “Aluminator,” which is Guitar Center’s brand.
Personally, I love Rickenbackers (especially the 7 series) and telecasters. In a sense, I’m not only incompetent, but also boring and Vanilla.
Some of my heroes include Django Reinhardt, Charlie Christian, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Frank Zappa, Muddy Waters, Justin Johnson, Rob Scallion, Jamie Dupuis, and Roger Gilmore.
I’ll be posting some of my own experiments and mess arounds here, sooner or later.
