Description: What can I say about the acoustic guitar? That is a tough question, well; I can tell you the history of the guitar, yes, let’s do that. Guitars are instruments that has been around longer than we can imagine, maybe not looking exactly the same, but quite similar. This stringed instrument has been around for a good 5,000 years and they were a popular commodity too back in those days. As you know people could only be entertained by entertaining others, or themselves. Besides reading from tablets and laughing at jesters, folks listened to music. It wasn’t until 1200 AD that the four string evolved with two different styles, first we have the Moorish, this had a round back, a spacious fingerboard, and sound holes laid throughout the body. Then we have the Latin guitar that looks a lot like today’s models with only one sound hole and the neck was a lot narrower. After years of transformation you get what we have today, but not only in 6 strings, we have a variety of models with my favorite being the twelve. The guitar is just a body of wood with an hour glass shape, a hollow inside, a long piece of wood that sits on the body called the neck, and on the neck sits frets, on the frets sits strings, and the strings are locked in by the bridge and stays locked up by the keys. The guitar has always been one of my favorite instruments along with the piano and violin. I tried learning how to play the acoustic guitar a while back but never really put to much effort into it, so instead of me playing for myself I enjoy listening to it being played to me. When learning how to draw acoustic guitars, it is so simple, this tutorial teaches you with only 4 steps and the instructions are super easy. I hope you had fun with me today, and I told you the next tutorial I put up wasn’t going to be a Webkinz. See ya.
