There are hundreds if not thousands of styles of guitar that you could play, and yet fundamentally a guitar is six strings, stretched between a nut and saddle, allowing you to “fret” different strings at different points to make notes higher or lower. This is what makes fretted instruments differ from the piano or the harp. Interrupting the string at various fret points to make notes higher or lower across an assortment of strings is what allows the guitar to be such a great harmonic or chordal instrument for accompaniments, and simultaneously be an amazing solo instrument, stringing individual notes in interesting melodic lines.
How it all works, and the role your hands, body, mind, and heart all have in the making of music, will be the subjects of a variety of blog posts, videos, and podcasts here on the blog at http://guitarlessonexpert.com/.
