Acoustic Guitars

The Acoustic Guitar Keeps It Au Naturel

With names like Huddie Leadbetter (a.k.a. Leadbelly), Pete Seeger, and Leo Kottke, the acoustic guitar quickly rose to fame in the 20th century. Derived from the classical guitar, acoustic guitars ...

re usually strung with steel strings, rather than nylon.

The steel strings ring in a brighter, louder sound to the guitar. To be able to handle the pull of the steel strings, these guitars are constructed with a much more durable composition than classical guitars.

Guitarists usually play their acoustics with guitar picks, called plectrums and typically made of hard plastic.

Acoustic Guitars Are Finger-Picking Good

When not using picks, many guitarists use their bare fingers and fingernails to strum and strike individual notes. This technique is called guitar fingerpicking and is common in folk guitar music.

Most acoustics come with 6 strings. However, a standard variation is the 12-string guitar, which sounds out with double the musical firepower.

For the guitar purist, there are few things more enjoyable than the sound of an acoustic emanating out. With its true tones and earthy resonance, a quality acoustic from such notable makers as Fender, Martin, Gibson, Taylor, and Ibanez can melt the hardened hearts of any music cynic.

With notes that lilt to the heavens or dirty chords that pound their way down under, the acoustic is a versatile instrument that caters to the emotions and needs of any musician.

Because you can find inexpensive acoustics at any of your local guitar centers, they often make for great "starter" instruments - an excellent way for beginners to learn sheet music and music theory.

So, visit your online guitar center, pick up you necessary extras, including strings, picks, a case, and a strap, and start singing and strumming to your heart's content. There's a guitarist inside of you. It's time to let that guitarist jam!

Acoustic Guitars Are Cool Again

Acoustic guitars are seen as one of the coolest instruments that a person can play and can make you very popular.

If you play a guitar people will expect you to bring your guitar to parties and gatherings. There is just something about the guitar, particularly the acoustic variety that draws people to the performer.

The acoustic guitar got a huge shot in the arm when MTV produced their "Unplugged" series. Many guitarists put away their Stratocaster and got back to basics with an acoustic.

The Choice Is Endless

The number of unique and stylish guitars on the market, especially online, is huge but, if you are looking for a new guitar, specifically an acoustic one, be sure to check out Martin guitars.

Martin specializes in acoustics and makes some of the best guitars around. The sound quality of Martin guitars is fantastic and they have many different styles of guitars to suit all personalities.

Taylor also makes great guitars that are crafted with quality and excellence in mind. With their different guitar series, finding your perfect acoustic should be simple.

Don't forget the manufacturers of electric guitars and Spanish guitars such as Fender and Gibson. They also have the lot, from acoustics right through to the essential straps, strings and case.

Acoustical guitars are a great instrument to learn to play music. Play it well and you will never be short of party invites for the rest of your life.
