Sometimes you want to give up the guitar, you’ll hate the guitar. But if you stick with it, you’re gonna be rewarded. – Jimi Hendrix
These words ring true today. I love playing the guitar and I love it when a student gets a riff, a chord, a solo perfected. The guitar is a wonderful instrument. It can sound angry like mad bees, moan like an aching heart, and let you hear what’s in the heart of the musician.
Fortunately for those of us who play guitar there are a number of styles for us to choose from.
1 Acoustic guitars

3 Electro-acoustic guitars
4 Twelve-string guitars
5 Archtop guitars

We all have our favorites. I know when I have the right guitar for me. Do you know how I know? When I hold it, it feels like it belongs in my hands. When I play it, it has a sound that speaks to me. When I look at it I know it was made for me.
