1.1 Presentation

The term guitar comes from the ancient Greek: κιθάρα / kithara: zither. It is a plucked stringed instrument. The strings are arranged parallel to the soundboard and neck, usually cut off from frets, on which the strings are supported with one hand to produce different notes. The strings are pinched with the other hand: either with the nails and fingertips, or with a plectrum or pick

The most common guitar is a six-string guitar. The guitar is the most widespread European variant of the lute and neck box type instrument category. The following instruments fall into the same category: balalaika, bouzouki, charango, lute, mandolin, oud, theorbo, ukulele

The guitar is different from these instruments in its shape, number of strings and their most usual chord. Variants of the classical guitar are regionally named by other names: viola, violão, cavaco and cavaquinho; tiple and shark

There are several types of guitars that can be distinguished by their ambitus and timbre, but they share most playing techniques. The resonance box is the hollow body of the guitar, it transforms the vibration of the strings into sound waves. The trunk of the guitar is, without exception, made of wood

The electric guitar was created in the 20th century. It does not require a resonance box. It is therefore a new instrument that includes an electronic amplifier, a loudspeaker, and possibilities of timbre variations far superior to the acoustic guitar

The guitar is an instrument that can be easily transported, it is an instrument for accompanying songs from multiple musical registers. European classical music contains a vast repertoire for guitar. The guitar is also the characteristic instrument of flamenco where it accompanies singing and dancing. The popularity of the guitar has increased with the international distribution of 20th century North American music such as jazz, blues, country, pop, rock, reggae and soul. Along with piano, harmonica and violin, the guitar is one of the most widely used instruments in the world.
