Teach guitar – There are many guitar types and styles of guitar playing. Some of the most popular are Rock, Acoustic and Classical.
Electric Guitar (Rock and Pop)
This style is usually played within a band on an electric guitar, although some artists use a steel strung acoustic instead. There are many variations of styles from Reggae, Heavy Metal, Classic rock, Indie & Ska etc.
The electric guitar is solid bodied and has steel strings with the strings being thin and quite close to the fingerboard to enable faster playing. There is an increased range of notes on the electric guitar to enable a greater range of tones for soloing.
Great electric guitar players are Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Jeff Beck, BB King, Joe Satriani and Les Paul.
Acoustic Steel Strung Guitar (Folk, Blues etc)
Acoustic steel strung guitars are generally used for Pop, Blues, Folk, Ragtime, Rock and some other styles.
