Ask anybody what the first word that comes to
their head is when they think of electric guitars and the consensus
response that you will probably get is “loud.”
Despite their reputation as being loud and annoying, there are
many good uses for these guitars and the fact is that in many
ways they are not all that different from normal guitars.
Of course, there are going to be some differences, especially
with the different types of guitars. Take for example bass electric
guitars. These types of guitars are important for underscoring
the melody in many songs, but few of those who do not own guitars
know that these kinds of guitars actually have less strings than
other types of guitars. Because bass guitars are a little more
limited in their scope, some consider them to be a bit easier
for beginners to pick up.
Another difference is the amount of sound the instrument amplifies.
If you are really strumming a way on your acoustic guitar, chances
are it can get kind of loud, but not so loud that anybody would
really be bothered by it. Too bad the same cannot be said for
electric guitars. These instruments are hooked into amplifiers
when they are played and if you really start strumming along and
have the amplifier turned up, there is a good chance that you
might have some angry neighbors.
