Electric Guitar

Parent Category: Guitars
An electric guitar is a guitar that is plugged into an amp to convert vibrations of its metal strings into electric audio signals. The electric guitar rock and roll, jazz, and other genres of music.
No, they're all the same. Each string is tuned in the same manner. However, it may be found to be more difficult to play certain chords on an acoustic than an electric due to neck differences, but the finger placement of the chords on both are the same.
you need a special kind of pedal like a synthesizer kind that alters the guitars sound so much that it sounds like one. Guitar processors have this feature on them and they are filled with other effects such as distortion , gain , chorus and flange to delay and reverb to achieve just about every...
in 1932 with George Beauchamp who holds the patent for the electric guitar. It was called the frying pan guitar I'd give you a wikipedia link but some contributors get upset when I send links to HELP people.
There are a couple different ways to change the sound on you  electric guitar: amp setup, effects pedals, and the pickups and  strings you use on your guitar. Just find what cmbination of these  you need and you can create a vast variety of sounds
Well, from my experience i personally like electric guitar strings on an acoustic guitar because i like the type of tone it gives the acoustic. it all depends on if you like the sound of it.
depends on how long it was wet. I go over my guitars every month with windex on a cloth to remove finger prints and so forth , than a bit of non-silicone car wax and never had a problem. fully submerged in water though it should! i mean give it a few days for everything to dry up as all that keeps...
Electric guitars aren't sized like stringed orchesteral instruments  and the size of a guitar really just depends on the  manufacturer(Fender, Squier, Gibson), so when sizing a guitar just  see which model feels the most comfortable to play
Strings are easy to remember with the right acronym , thin to thick it's EBGDAE "Every beautiful girl deserves an earring" , have fun with it and make your own version of that up. The frets start at the top of the neck in this case right where the headstock starts and the neck ends and you count...
A solid body guitar has a body made from one or more pieces of a solid material, usually wood. This does not preclude hollow spaces or 'chambers' within the body to accommodate electronics or mechanical devices, or to reduce the body's weight. A semi-solid guitar is of similar construction, but has...
  == Answer ==   Left stripe is 5/8", then 5/8"gap, then 4 1/8", 5/8"gap and right stripe is 5/8".   I bought the car new, with stripes in place. When renovated about 15 years ago I got a decal kit somewhere, probably Hemmings, but it matches pictures I had from when I first bought it. I...
The sound of the electric guitar comes from electromagnetic induction that converts it to vibrations then into electric signals. Bit when the electric signals come out they are to weak so they are amplified using a audio amplifier before then sending it to loud speaker.
The most famous brands or guitars are probably the fender stratocaster, fender telecaster, Les paul, Epiphone, Ibanez and Gibson
There are variances between pieces of wood, but in general most Les  Paul Customs weigh-in somewhere between 10 - 10.5 pounds. However,  I've seen claims by other Les Paul owners that their Customs weigh  as much as 12 - 13 pounds.    So, you can figure on getting a guitar that's somewhere...
Club Penguin has a variety of clothing and other items that comes in and out every month or so. The guitars are also avalible during the Music Jam evey year. For the guitar and other instuments you will need a membership.
There is no difference in chords, whether played on an electric, acoustic or classical. Most guitarists who play chords on an acoustic guitar usually try to play with open strings, and this is why they use a capo to allow them to play chords for the most open strings. This is because it sounds more...
Squire Stratocaster.
Wood. Different types like Mahogany, Maple, rosewoods, etc.
yes, the only difference between the two guitars is that one is mechanical
No, please leave the internet at the next set of lights.
range as in what would be the thickest to be considered a B string right? if so with regular guitar strings 11 on a 9-42 set 13 on a 10-46 set 14 on a 11-49+ set some companies do 11-50 ..ect 15 on a 12-52 set (give or take) 17 on a 13-56+ set What is interesting about guitar strings is you...
to tune an electric guitar properly you have to have a tuner , either a kind that plugs into the guitar or one with a microphone in it like a Korg tuner has and then you hit one string at a time. the notes you tune to are E (thickest) also known as low E for the string name A D G B E ...
For this answer I'm assuming you mean what notes do the strings correspond to in standard tuning. From thickest to thinnest it is EADGBE.
Save up your allowance, suck up like you never did before or wait for a birthday, it takes a long time to get say slash good, but DON'T buy one unless its from a real guitar store. Learn tabliture on youtube otherwise guitar playing is just a waste of time since you wont be able to play anything or...
There are many... Ibanez, Rickenbacker, Yamaha, Gibson, Washburn, BC Rich, Steinberger, to name a few, but there are guitars made to look similar to the classic fender stratocaster like the Yamaha Pacifica, the Squire (made by Fender) and the Torch Vintage.
There are many styles, but the most prominent are metal and rock. Hope it helps- Roxas riku
He plays several different ones at different times.
== Answer ==   They are the same.   ANSWER   they are the same if they are both 4x4 or both 2x4 because the 4x4 has popup pistons and the head is clearenced for them and the 2x4 has dish pistons and is not clearenced for the popup pistons
it's naturally a quiet instrument and had to sound as loud as all the other instruments back in the 40s and prior in say Swing bands. The rest is history
I guess people wanted a new sound in their string instruments so they built electric guitars to get it.
not at all. in a few months you should be a great player as long as you get a good teacher.
It allowed it to be louder and more powerful.
Paul's innovative guitar, "The Log", built after-hours in the Epiphone guitar factory in 1940, was one of the first solid-body electric guitars. Adolph Rickenbacker had marketed a solid-body guitar in the 1930s and Leo Fender also independently created his own in 1946. Although Paul approached the...
Where do we start, the body is normally wood, neck is wood but some have a metal rods inside the neck called a truss rod (used to adjust the neck)metal frets, a set of machine heads or tuning pegs normally metal, hardware on the body various metals for the bridge, end stop, strap buttons, scratch...
The stings frequency varies depending on how short or long the string is when played.That frequency excites the magnetic poles and windings around it and sends small voltage signals to the amplifer that boosts the signal so you can hear it. Same concept as the telephone.
i paid $350 for mine. minor wear and tear but still an awesome guitar
By "value", I'm assuming the "worth" based on its price. That would depend on what the seller is selling it for and your interest of the instrument. If it is used, it is in good condition, sounds great and you have a genuine interest in the guitar, then the "value" of the instrument to you is medium...
Les Paul, may he rest in peace, was the inventor of the solid body electric guitar. Modern guitars are based on his technology.
for a while it was Eric Claptons modified strat "Blackie", which sold for $950,000 in 2004, but recently it was a strat that was signed by several rock musicians to benefit a tsunami charity, including: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Brian May, Jimmy Page, David Gilmour, Jeff Beck, Pete...
An acoustic, or ordinary guitar, is hollow and it generally makes a more calming sound. You would here it in something like I'm Yours by Jason Mraz. An electric has a sharper sound and is usually plugged into an amp. It is normally used for rock.
There are a whole slew of acoustic simulator pedals out there. You're best bet would be the Boss line of AC pedals. The AC-2 and AC-3 by Boss are pretty much as standard as you can get for acoustic stompboxes.
Take lessons.You can look up stuff about guitar or get a book. If you go online i would reccomend going to www.ipaguitarpro.blogspot.com because it has alot of chords you can look at and some songs.
umm well if u question is ''do you have to learn acoustic guitar before electric then NO it is all the same its just a differt kind if you no what i mean its good to no somthing about playing guitar before you rush in and buy one : ) It is good to have acoustic guitar lessons before you move on...
There is usually a button or switch on the amp which turns distortion on and off.
two things without getting into pedals come to mind to hold notes longer the E-bow , it's around 50$ on craigslist the Fernandez "sustainer" pickup , but the pickup is under the strings heavier metals that the guitars parts are made out of and certain woods will make the notes ring out longer ,...
  == Answer ==   First off, it is not a 3-phase range. It is a single phase 110/220V range with a cord lacking a ground pin. Also, it is not a 4 phase outlet. It is a modern 110/220V outlet with a ground pin.   To upgrade your range, go th the hardware store and buy a new 4-prong 50A...
well if you are playing sitting down then there shouldn't be any problem playing without a strap although i personally play with a strap when sitting. But if you have to play standing then you most likely are gonna end up using a strap.....you can try playing without one while standing but I'm sure...
don't take this as these are the only types.these arew just the basics. ill give you examples of each if i can. Solidbody-almost completely solid block of wood (minus the small holes for the electronics) ex. the Les Paul. Semi-Hollow body- self explanitory. ex. Gibson ES355* Acoustic electric-...
  ullu kae pathoo mugae answer chahiwae tha
They're both great choices! While a standard Canon EOS will cost more than a standard electric guitar, it's all a matter of where your passions are. If you don't play guitar, consider the additional cost of guitar lessons, etc.
This depends on the number of frets on the guitar. Because of the way the strings are tuned, if a guitar is in standard tuning it has 26 + the number of frets possible notes, so a 22 fret guitar would have 48 possible notes and a 24 fret guitar would have 50.
If you are by yourself, and playing with absolutely no amp or other gadgets whatsoever, you can play, but you won't get any volume. If you're with some other people, and they have a PA system available, some of the things you can do are to plug your guitar into a "DI", or direct box, and patch it...
Guitars are as varied in colour as anything else in the world, but the 2 most common colours are Black, and light brown (as in the original wood colour).
Hi, I have an old EKO 100 model and for this particular guitar the number (100, 200, 300) was dropped after '63 and then they had a "name" instead of a model number on the inside sticker. I dont know what kind of an eko you have , I only have limited info on the archtop model. I have no clue how to...
it's debatable for who invented guitars as this goes back 400 years to say the 1600s but now electric guitars the patent and credit goes to George Beauchamp when he worked in a Californian company called Rickenbacker. He invented the single coil pickup amongst other things around the time of 1931...
tuners/machine heads for the tuners   strings are made of nickel, steel or copper depending on what you  use   the bridge usually is   the knobs on the guitar   a bit of the input jack I suppse   the trussrod inside the neck   and the frets are made of steel usually
It was invented by Les paul in 1939 and sold By Gibson.   AnswerLes Paul's "The Log" was a semi-hollow guitar with a solid center block, so one can argue that it's not a "solidbody" guitar, just as the later ES-335 wouldn't be considered a solidbody. This prototype was never put into production,...
on an acoustic guitar they are thicker than on an electric 12-52 on an acoustic 9-42 or 10-46 on an electric the first number is your thinnest string , the smaller the number the smaller the string , the last number .. you guessed it is your thickest.
No. i bought a really good ibanez for $149 and its better than my $5,679 Gibson
i would say a Gibson or a dean, though if $$$ is a problem stick with an epiphone or a fender or somthin
First guitar was invented in 1779 by Gaetano Vinaccia according to  various sites available.
The first electric guitar was the Rickenbacker A-22, better known as the "Frying Pan," invented in 1931 by George Beauchamp. It was a steel guitar, and used two horseshoe magnets that arched over the strings as pickups. While this is officially recognized as the first, as he was not granted a patent...

Instruments similar to the guitar have been popular for at least  4,000 years. Their names all bear a resemblance to our word  "guitar" The word guitar comes from the Spanish word  guitarra, which came from the medieval Arabic qitara,  which in turn came from Latin cithara, which came from Greek...
I found 24 fret guitars kind of challanging at first but if you have big hands it isn't a problem. BC Rich and schecters always my first two picks they start off cheap and I never had any problems with low end ones I bought over the years.
 == Answer ==   I currently have my 1996 Nissan Maxima at the dealership (or shall I say "stealership") replacing a faulty speed sensor. Like you, I thought the only speed sensor was attached to the transmission. It turns out there is another behind the dash. Where, exactly, I am not sure,...
It's as debatable as say what's your favorite fast food restaurant. honestly I've bought guitars a lot over the years and as long as it stays in tune and sounds good enough with and without the amp that you can't wait to pick it up again and again its good. BC Rich I've never had problems with...
it'll look like new done properly! if its little blemishes use a black marker or a nail polish if its just a small chip in the paint you'll save a bit of money. paint thinner is the easiest way to do so to strip the paint off if not nail polish remover and sand paper. afterwards theres many...
    Yes; but I recommend to first strip the paint, and sand it down before repainting your guitar. You will also want to remove string, pick ups and bridge. You will want to tape off any areas you may not want painted.
yes, same basic pricapal. both electric and acoustic guitars use most of the same chords.
clarification (drift is a relative term and must be associated with the player or the instrument) While this is true, I believe I can supply a few suggestions as to what "Drifting" means, in general reference to the guitar, and a few steps on where to start. Firstly, Drifting is a relative...
Yes. Most bands, regardless of their favorite style or genre of music, have a guitarist because it is among the most common and favorite instruments.
firstly. you need hands. haha just kidding but seriously. you need an electric guitar of course. a pick. you might want a strap if youre standing up. a decently long fourth inch guitar cable a small guitar amp since im assuming youre just starting. and an outlet to plug the amp into. that's all that...
you name a way it has been improved better ways to attach the neck to the body heavier metals we found give a better sound to improve them finding woods that ring out more or simply sound better the electronics we've found that work better for blues musicans than say death metal ways to tune...
Rhythm and lead are just styles of playing the same instrument. You can use an electric guitar amp to play either style.
Yes, absolutely. Musical talent or the eagerness to develop one has no age boundaries and there is no reason a child can not learn from the age of 2, provided the guitar is not too heavy to lift. At 11, it could be more difficult to learn than an earlier age, but if the child requests to learn or...
Squire Telecasters are great beginner guitars. They're inexpensive, extremely playable and sound pretty good.

Most of the basic 3 chord songs are simple to play. I recently answered a question on how to play Jingle Bells, which requires only 3 open chords. Those 3 are usually E, A and G, or you can use A, D and E, or use D, G and A. These combinations are the basis of the average 3 chord song.
using acoustic strings on an electric does not damage the guitar. tightening them too tight does. acoustic strings tend to be thicker than electric strings, so all you have to do is just tune lower to avoid putting too much stress on the neck. i just want to know why they use different materials to...
the proper way to play is if a guitars in tune, that way every string can do something different. A tuner makes sure that your guitar stays in tune. how you know its out of tune is if it sounds weird if you play something and it sounds different from yesterday, having a tuned guitar makes it easier...
broken down into catagories and how to spot it bolt on - think fender strats , where the neck meets the body it has a metal plate and 4 bolts going through the entire neck and attaching to the body. This is the most commonly found neck attachment. The pro is you can toss a broken neck off and...

By far, without a shadow of a doubt, the best place to buy an electric guitar is a music store that specializes in them, from sales to technical modifications. Of course you will be paying a lot more, but you would get the best advice and find almost everything you need. Alternatively, if you knew...
nothing gets all girls but try to play something either really "pretty" or really cool that you think they would like. Certain colognes with pheromones i heard work wonders.
