Probably hardly another instrument valley musician is as differently truely taken, as the guitarist. But already the far spreading of the guitar ensures as hobby and occupation instrument across all possible ranges and cultures.
until around 1930 was equivalent the guitar to acoustic guitar. This is, compared to many other instruments (z. B. Trumpet, piano, Schlagzeug) a rather quiet instrument. The guitarist threatens in a larger ensemble very easilyto go down klanglich.
Over to work against one can insert Gitarrensoli, with those the orchestra and/or. the volume is taken back, or a group of instruments from several guitars to form, which strengthen the sound volume (similarly z. B. play the violin).
For approximately 1930 is a furtherPossibility been added, the E-guitar. The guitar sound is electrically produced and strengthened. It is characteristic, which arose this form of the guitar just, when in the maintenance music bend volume into mode came. Now also an individual guitarist can against the sound forcethe remaining volume allude.
It took however still some years, before one recognized that the E-guitar represents its own instrument with own play ways and sound possibilities. Trailblazing here above all the jazz guitarist Charlie Christian applies.
Since the 1950er years becamethe play possibilities above all the E-guitar by numerous effects (z. B.Wahwah pedal, sound of jet) extends. This development with the guitars reached a high point synthesizern.
At the same time the picture of the guitarist thereby however also dissolved. The guitar was now no longer sound-giving instrument (like still with the E-guitar), but only interface to the Synthesizer, those was almost arbitrarily replaceable by other interfaces (z. B. Key board).
A special case is the one-man orchestra, which is based mostly on the guitar. The guitaristbecomes here the multi-instrument valleyists.
as with other music instruments is very different also the way to the guitarist. This goes to that from the autodidact, who teaches itself the play independently, up to the diploma musician, at a college of music studied.
