Before you start “stringing”, you
need to makes sure that you’ve purchased the right guitar based on your style
of music and aesthetic appeal.

The two major types of guitar are:

Acoustic Guitar

Acoustic can be further classified
as steel-string acoustic guitar and classical guitar. The former produces a
distinctive metallic sound that can be heard across different genres. They are
also referred to as flat tops. Classical guitars are strung with nylon strings
and have a wider neck.  They are also
referred to as Spanish guitars following the country of their origin.

Acoustic guitars are portable and
easy to use.  They ae usually used in
small halls, churches or private spaces. For larger venues, amplification might
be needed. Beginners often use acoustic guitar as their first guitar.


guitars are solid-bodied guitars that are plugged into an amplifier. The sound
thus produced is metallic with a lengthy decay. The two most popular designs
for electric guitars are
the Fender Stratocaster and the
Gibson Les Paul.

Electric guitar strings are thinner
than acoustic guitar strings and closer to the neck and therefore less force is
needed to press them down.  Fret-tapping
is a guitar technique for creating chords and melody lines that are not
possible using the standard technique of left-hand fretting and right-hand
The electric guitar can be either
used as a rhythm guitar or as a lead guitar depending on the sequence needed. Chord
sequences, progression, riffs, instrumental fills, melody, solo etc. all these
and more can be taken care of by the electric guitar.
