DIVISION OF GUITAR ACCORDING TO STRING NUMBER

Six-stringed

The vast majority of guitars have six strings.

Twelve-stringed

12 guitar

Edited jumbo or western guitar. The intention is primarily a more pronounced, more penetrating sound. Tuning is the same as the six-string guitar, except that each string is "double" (2x E, 2x H, ...). The biggest use of "twelve strands" is in country and bluegrass.

Other

Sometimes we also encounter other strings. Of course, experiments are not bound to the limits. E.g. seven or eight-beat guitars have added bass strings for a larger range of tones.

USED ​​SOURCES

Division of guitars according to the music style in which it has the most usage

This group includes tools that have been specifically tailored for a particular musical style.

Jazz guitar

It has two eyepieces on the front plate (eph), similar to the violin. It is characterized by high clutter and a sharp, penetrating tone. Mostly these are electro or acoustic guitars. A typical representative is Gibson Guitar.

Flamenco guitar

flamenco guitar

The flamenco guitar is required to have a clear and fast tone on the button (that is, the string does not last for a long time than the wood body of the guitar sounds) and a quick fade, otherwise all rhythmic techniques such as rasgueo, rasgueado or alzapua will lose its impact, and especially rague, would merge into a clutter of sounds.

Among the other differences compared to the classic guitar include low-lying strings and golpeador.

The low strings have two functions: proximity to the fingerboard facilitates legato play, very often in the flamenco guitar used, proximity to the soundboard makes it easy to punch the fingers into the sound recorder (golpe). Since golpe is usually played alongside strings, the distance of the soundtrack from the strings plays a significant role.

A thin sounding board must be protected against fingerprints - otherwise it would soon be a hole (as seen from Manitas de Plata guitar). To do this, a thin protector (golpeador) is stuck around the eyepiece. The Golpeador is either white or more transparent (many flamenco guitars are sold today without a golpeador, which is available in particular as a plastic sticker that can be replaced from time to time).

Division of guitars according to the method of creation and formation the tone

ACOUSTICAL

After the strings are twisted, a tone is generated, which is guided by a bridge and a resonant hole in the body of the instrument. There, with the help of the front plate, rib placement and the shape of the tool body, it strengthens and acquires the necessary qualities, such as color. The quality of these guitars is therefore completely dependent on the right design and the material from which they are made.

They are especially outstanding with irreplaceable color and purity of tone and machine independence.

The disadvantage can be low volume, especially when playing in a busy environment.

It would very much rise in price if some individuals learned to hold h ... and listen :-)

Includes:

Spanish guitar

Rein700

The other guitars are distinguished mainly by a greater neck width (50 mm, +/- 2 mm), a more colorful tone, always a round resonance hole, and nylon strings, which, unlike other guitars, are fastened to the grasshopper by knots created by the strings. (See Guitar Strings for more info . )

The right hand plays almost exclusively fingers, but the trick is an exception (some jazz styles).

Typical is nail play, which gives us a sharp and distinctive tone.

Its use is mainly in classical music, flamenco, brazilian music and jazz.

the Spanish guitar and her parts      

Jumbo guitar

martin dxm

The Spanish guitar is distinguished by a narrower fingerboard and metal strings. Typical is the more robust body of a tool, which usually allows for brighter bass tones. The neck is adapted to a greater string tension, often with a reinforced wire that can accommodate any unwanted bend. The strings are fixed to the grasshopper by means of pins. Your right hand is playing with your fingers or thumps.

Jumbo is used in many musical styles, the most common are country, folk, jazz, blues, rock.

Western guitar

So far I have not found the fundamental difference between jumb and western guitar. Perhaps only jumbo has a more robust body and, therefore, more bloody bass.

Jazz Guitar (Gibson)

gibson

It has an arched top plate with two sound apertures, so-called ephids, which are similar to the violin's violins. It is equipped with a cut-out for the left hand (so-called cutaway) for better movement and easier to reach the heights. Another specific feature is the pickguard, which is the impact area for the picker, and a hand that prevents damage to the surface of the front panel. As the name itself suggests - it is typical of jazz music.

Hawaiian guitar

It is similar to the Spanish guitar, tuned into the main chord, and it differs mainly in the way of the game: We cross the strings with a metal tunic in our hand, shortening the tone of the tone.

Good

Good

The resonant guitar (the body is fitted with a large aluminum resonator) with a wooden body. For good guitar rounded neck, we can play either classic guitar style or so called slide style (using a handcuff like a Hawaiian guitar), where the tool can be placed horizontally on the knees. It has a strong and bell-like sound and is used mainly in country and bluegrass.

Acoustic bass

acoustic bass

is a stringed bass tool that has a hollow body similar to a western guitar, but slightly larger. Most acoustic basses are fitted with sleepers, but they are also unprotected. The instrument normally has four stunts, the tuning is similar to a double bass or an EADG bass (an octave below the deeper strings of a normal guitar). Exceptionally, multiplayer tools also appear. Because hearing acoustic bass without an amplifier can be difficult, the instruments are usually equipped with a piezoelectric sensor.

The first modern acoustic bass was developed by Ernie Ball in the early 1970s. At the end of the 80's and during the 1990's, the acoustic bass was used during MTV Unplugged concerts.

ELECTROACOUSTIC (SEMI-ACOUSTIC)

They are similar to acoustic guitars, they differ only in built-in sound pickup electronics (kennel sensor, built-in microphone, Jack 1/4 connector input, etc.). Their popularity is growing, thanks to the ability to sound a tool. It often helps to solve the band's loudness problem with louder instruments (drums, electric basses, wind instruments).

      

ELECTRICAL (ELECTRONIC)

model JLTC1

An electric guitar (more accurately electrophonic) is a type of guitar in which electromagnetic sensors convert the vibration of strings with a steel core into an electric current that is guided by the guitar into an amplifier. An electric guitar often uses various effects to adjust the sound. The resulting sound is also greatly influenced by the amplifier and speaker used. Guitars are of a variety of shapes.

DIVISION OF GUITAR ACCORDING TO THE MATERIAL PRODUCED

If we talk about the wood from which the body (corpus) of the instrument is made, we use the terms massive , semi- solid and plywood .

Massive (all-massive)

If we say about the guitar that it is massive, it means that the whole body was made of one piece of wood.

Polomasive (all-massive)

At least some part of the body (front plate, back plate, ...) was made of one piece of wood.

Plywood

Mostly several layers of wood (or laminate boards) are glued together.
