THE GUITAR
Here we will learn about the guitar and its different
parts so you are familiar with these names when we
are talking about the guitar during your lessons.
Remember that the guitar is a musical instrument
and most everything on the guitar is described by
how it sounds rather than by how it is physically
placed.
BASIC GUITAR PARTS
All guitars are basically the same shape, with the
same parts.
This diagram shows the three main sections of any
guitar - the body, neck and head with some of their
individual parts.
Of course there are many shapes and sizes that
vary from this basic shape. Some guitars don’t even
have a head, though these are very rare!
The two main types of guitars are the acoustic and
electric guitar.
