Isn’t the guitar one of the most sweet, harmonic and versatile instruments you can possible listen to? or even better, play? You can find all kind of musicians interpreting real masterpieces of pretty much any imaginable genre.
Do you like the trashing sounds of metal or classic rock?, you got it! or how about some romatic ballads? got you covered! Celtic? Check! Country or Pop music? would not exists with out it! Bossa Nova? Pleeease, guitar is the very soul of it!
Also, the guitar is quite portable (tell that to the piano players!) and affordable; yes, you could, if you wanted, shell a few G’s for a very nice guitar but you can also find very decent sounding instruments for a really good price.
For me, where guitar finds its golden spot is in classical music. Its sound with so many different “personalities” make the music come alive. Playing guitar is one of my personal hobbies, so I thought that the best way to describe it is by playing a little bit for you. And yes, I know I have a long, long way to go to call myself a guitarist but I am sure enjoying the journey!
