Guitars are music instruments that are very versatile; most
musicians around the entire world use them because they find a
guitar to be very easy to play.
They are also the most commonly chosen instrument for a student
to start playing their way into music, mostly because it takes
very little time to learn how to play it, and of course because
it is not rare to be able to find a decent guitar for a very
convenient price (unlike other instruments as pianos, for
Today, all music shops offer a very wide variety of guitars,
suitable for almost any musician, from beginners to masters. The
most popular, however, are these two kinds of guitars: Acoustic
guitars and electric 6-strings guitars.
Some very specialized vendors have started selling other classes
of guitars; usually adaptations of the classical guitar made by
different cultures all around the world. In these vendors'
shops, regular customers (mostly collectors) are able to buy
guitars such as the Mexican "guitarron", a huge guitar used by
"Mariachis", or as the "guitarra criolla", an Argentinean
adaptation of the 6-strigs classical guitar, used by Tango
orchestras and also by the famous "gauchos" (the south-american
version of cowboys).
Another advantage of guitars is that, once you learned the
basics of music composition, you will find it easer to move into
more complex instruments, such as violins, and keyboard
instruments; which are more difficult to use as the first
contact with music practicing. Beyond all that, the key to
guitar's success (they are the most used musical instrument
worldwide, and has been for a very long time) is what matters
the most: its sound. The beautiful sound a guitar produces can
be compared to the sound produced by instruments that are much
more expensive, rare and hard to learn. That is what keeps a
good guitar above the rest.
