Electric Guitar: My Friend, The Guitar. LP 254. Rayburn Wright. Guitars! The History Of The Guitar In Sound And Song ‎(LP). Golden Records (2).

The evolution of classical guitars began with the influences of the vihuela and gittern in the sixteenth century and ended with the modern classical guitar in the mid nineteenth century. While the precise lineage of the instrument is still unclear, historians believe that the guitar is the descendant of the Greek kithara, gittern, lyre, European and Middle Eastern lutes, and the Spanish vihuela.

The First Modern Guitar in History. In the mid-1800’s, Antonio de Torres Jurado, a Spanish musician and luthier, began creating the style of guitar that would give rise to all modern guitars. Although many people tried to amplify the guitar’s sound using attached microphones or telephone transmitters in the first two decades of the 20th Century, it was an electrical engineer named Adolph Rickenbacker-at the time, the vice president of the National Guitar Corporation-as well as Paul Barth, and George Beauchamp-a musician who favored the Hawaiian-style lap steel. guitar-who in 1932, finally solved the puzzle.

History of the guitar is in one sense, a history of entire modern humanity. With roots that go all the way to the birth of modern civilization in ancient Mesopotamia some four to five thousand years ago, the influence of musical instruments gave us the ability to create countless traditions. Among many instruments, simple stringed guitars and harps started their journey from the Middle East and Persia to the all four corners of the world, enabling our ancestors to put their touch on the history of guitar and modern music. The introduction of electric guitars in the 1930s and their incredible popularization in 1950s by the numerous rock musicians propelled guitars into the height of their popularity.

1980's Vintage Guitars, Guitar History, Vintage Guitars. In many ways, the spectacular Japanese-made 1982 Daion Savage Power Mark XX shown here was the offspring of something intended to end, or at least seriously damage, Japanese guitar-making itsel. n other words, this guitar shouldn’t exist. The blues guitar scales are really based off of the pentatonic scales with one extra note added. We call that extra note the blue note because it gives the pentatonic scale its obvious bluesyness. The only real difference between the scales on the guitar and the same scales on any other instrument is the fact that there is more than one way to play them on a guitar. This is due mostly to the fact that the guitar is a stringed instrument and there are at least 3-5 ways to play any unique note.

The guitar is a fretted musical instrument that usually has six strings. It is typically played with both hands by strumming or plucking the strings with either a guitar pick or the finger(s)/fingernails of one hand, while simultaneously fretting (pressing the strings against the frets) with the fingers of the other hand

During the 17th century guitars began their transition from five to six stringed instruments. By the beginning of the 19th century Spanish guitar makers had continued to develop the guitar into the classical form recognized today. The use of steel strings, and eventually the creation of the electric guitar were first introduced in the early 1900s. Charlie and Orville Gibson were the driving force behind these developments, and were extremely successful in their endeavors

The guitar is arguably the most famous musical instrument of all time. It has gained massive popularity in modern times, and is one of the most recognizable and widely used instruments in the world. It is no wonder then that this instrument has a deep and complex history that is as dynamic and interesting as the sounds that it produces. The first guitar-like instruments have been around for almost 3,000 years, and have been used by many different people and cultures
