What is an Acoustic Guitar?
Perhaps you were inspired by the time you saw your favorite shredder strip down his sound with an acoustic guitar, or you've always liked the tones heard in folk, flamenco and classic Spanish music. In all cases, if you've considered picking up the guitar, an acoustic is ideally the best place to start when it comes to developing technique. Your sound is exposed and comes fully down to your skills. From here, you can move onto an electric with a solid understanding of how this instrument works, before you start experimenting with pedals and effects.
The guitar's history dates back centuries to the vihuela, an instrument used during Medieval times. Today's acoustic guitar, like the options you see for sale at Alamo Music Center, was developed in the 19th century. As it stands, an acoustic guitar features a follow body from which the sound resonates, a flat neck with frets where you'll place your fingers, and six strings that a player plucks with their fingers or a pick.
String quality, however, changes the sound. Initially, guitars used catgut strings; however, that changed in the 20th century. Today, classical and Spanish guitars typically use nylon strings for warmth and depth. Steel strings, on the other hand, give the instrument the twang you hear in rock, folk, country, and bluegrass.
