Division of guitars according to the method of creation and formation the tone
After the string vibrates, a tone is created, which is guided by the bridge and the resonant hole into the instrument body. There, the front plate, the arrangement of the ribs and the shape of the tool body are used to strengthen and obtain the necessary qualities, such as color (timbre). The quality of these guitars therefore entirely depends on the correct construction and material from which they are made.
They excel especially in their irreplaceable color and purity of tone and independence from the apparatus.
The disadvantage may be the low volume, especially when playing in a noisy environment.
It would rise greatly in price if some individuals learned to shut up h ... and listen :-)
It differs from other guitars mainly by the larger neck width (50 mm, +/- 2 mm), more colorful tone, always round resonant hole and nylon strings, which, unlike other guitars, are attached to the bridge using knots created by lining the string. See Guitar Strings for more info.
The right hand plays almost exclusively using fingers, the pick is rather an exception (some jazz styles).
Typical is nail play, which gives us a sharp and distinctive tone.
It is mainly used in classical music, flamenco, Brazilian music and jazz.
It differs from Spanish guitar by narrower fingerboard and metal strings. Typical is the more robust instrument, which usually allows for brighter bass tones. The neck is adapted to a greater string tension, often with a reinforced wire that can accommodate any unwanted bend. The strings are fixed to the bridge using pegs. The right hand plays with fingers or pick.
Jumbo is used in many musical styles, the most common are country, folk, jazz, blues, rock.
So far I have not found the fundamental difference between jumbo and western guitar. Perhaps just the jumbo has a more robust body and therefore more penetrating bass.
It has an arched top plate with two sound holes, so-called efes, which are similar to the sound holes of a violin. It is equipped with a cut-out in the body for the left hand (so-called cutaway) for better movement and easier to reach the heights. Another specific feature is the pickguard, which is the impact area for the picker, and a hand that prevents damage to the surface of the front panel. As the name itself suggests - it is typical especially of jazz music.
It is a body structure similar to the Spanish guitar, tuned to a major chord, it differs mainly in the way it is played: We run the strings through a metal fret held in the hand, thus shortening the length of the vibration of the tone.
Resophonic guitar (the body is equipped with a large aluminum resonator) with a wooden body. For Dobro with a rounded guitar neck, we can play either the classic guitar style or the so-called slide style (using a playing iron as with a Hawaiian guitar), in which you can have the instrument placed horizontally on your knees. It excels in strong and ringing sound and is used mainly in country and bluegrass.
Acoustic bass guitar
is a stringed, bass instrument that has a hollow body similar to a western guitar but slightly larger than an electric bass guitar. Most acoustic bass guitars are equipped with frets, but there are also fretless frets. The instrument usually has four strings, the tuning is similar to the double bass or electric bass guitar - E-A-D-G (an octave lower than the deeper strings of a normal guitar). Exceptionally, multi-string instruments also appear.Because it can be difficult to hear an acoustic bass guitar without an amplifier, the instruments are usually equipped with, for example, a piezoelectric sensor.
The first modern acoustic bass guitar was developed by Ernie Ball in the early 1970s. At the end of the 80's and during the 1990's, the acoustic bass guitar was used during MTV Unplugged concerts.
They are similar to an acoustic guitar, differing only in the built-in electronics for sound recording (pickup in the bridge, built-in microphone, input for Jack 1/4 connector, etc.).Their popularity is growing, thanks to the possibility of sounding the instrument. It often helps to solve the problem with the volume of the guitar in a band where there are louder instruments (drums, electric bass guitar, wind instruments).
An electric guitar (more accurately electrophonic) is a type of guitar in which electromagnetic sensors convert the vibration of strings with a steel core into an electric current that is guided by the guitar into an amplifier. An electric guitar often uses various effects to adjust the sound. The resulting sound is also greatly influenced by the amplifier and speaker used. Guitars are of a variety of shapes.
