Guitars are one of the most popular instruments around the world.

There are mainly three different types of guitars, classical, electric, and acoustic guitar. But all the guitar players are hailed among all kinds of music fans.

An acoustic guitar has a plane hollow wooden body, which helps in the resonance of sound. The strings can either be made of steel or nylon.

Steel stringed guitars are hugely popular and one of the most widely used instruments from the stringed family. Usually, these guitars have a total of 6 strings.

Classical guitars differ only in a small margin with respect to acoustic guitars, but there is a huge difference when it comes to playing style. These guitars have a hard wooden body, and the strings are made of white nylon.

Electric guitars are hard-bodied instruments. They are made up of metal body or metal fused wooden body.

These instruments are incapable of producing the sound of their own and require the help of an amplifier to produce their sounds. Among professional musicians and guitarists, electric guitars are most commonly used.

The guitar family also bridges out to bass guitars, which have four low strings and helps in the bass effect of a song. The other family member is a ukulele, which is a mini guitar having four high pitched strings.
