Introduction

Hello and welcome to the ultimate guitar blog. Whether you are an experienced guitar player or you're only starting and know nothing about the instrument, but want to start playing and learn, you've come to the right place. This is my first article and i wont go into too much detail so if you have any experience you might want to skip this.
This is just some general background information. The guitar is a string instrument constructed from wood and strung with either nylon or steel strings. There are three main types of acoustic guitars: the classical guitar (nylon-strings), the steel string guitar, and the archtop guitar. The sound of an acoustic guitar is produced by the vibration of the strings and is amplified by the body of the guitar. 

Electric guitars were introduced in the 1930s. They require an amplifier that electronically manipulates the tone.(im saying amplifiers but really i mean speakers with amplifiers built in). the very first electric guitars had a hollow body but later solid bodies became more popular.

I personally prefer electric guitars, because there are many more possibilities. Some songs or riffs you simply cant play on an acoustic guitar.
