An electric guitar is a guitar that uses a pickup to convert the vibration of its strings into electrical impulses. The most common guitar pickup uses the principle of direct electromagnetic induction. The signal generated by an electric guitar is too weak to drive a loudspeaker, so it is amplified before sending it to a loudspeaker. Since the output of an electric guitar is an electric signal, the signal may easily be altered using electronic circuits to add “color” to the sound. Often the signal is modified using effects such as reverb and distortion.It is a common assumption that electric guitars are louder than acoustic guitars. When they’re not plugged in of course, they actually are much quieter. Many amplifiers have headphone outputs and smartphones and similar devices can now run amp emulation software so that you can plug your guitar into your phone and practise anywhere that you like. If you’re worried about annoying the neighbours, then don’t! Just plug in a pair of headphones and you’ll be quieter than your acoustic guitar playing friends if you want to be.
London guitarists who are looking for acoustic guitar lessons have come to the right place.Feel free to explore the beginner, intermediate and advanced guitar lesson videos that cover topics for acoustic guitarists… Here’s a bit of basic info about acoustic guitars for those of you just starting out….Acoustic guitars come in two basic varieties. Nylon (or gut) string guitars, and steel string guitars. Neither is harder to play than the other, and you should choose the sort of instrument you play based on the sound you prefer. Nylon string guitars tend to be primarily used for classical and flamenco guitar styles. Steel string guitars tend to be used for country, folk, pop and rock. The nylon string guitar has a slightly mellower tone and the steel string a more shimmery bright sound (they’re particularly good for strumming).
Why should I bother trying to get the hang of the guitar fretboard*, you ask?
Because regardless of what style you play —or want to play— the basic fretboard layout does not change.
This is true whether it’s blues guitar, jazz guitar, classical guitar, rock guitar, flamenco guitar, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, finger style guitar or what ever guitar styles you enjoy and love it’s essential to learn the neck notes.
