The Classical Guitar (Spanish guitar) is an instrument usually used for performing “classical" music and its origin is from Spain. The guitar is made of soft wood with a big, hollow sound-box with a form reminiscent of the female body, which is probably why so many male guitarists give their guitars female aliases. The guitar’s long fret-board is made of pure wood, and the machined head is made to facilitate very fine tuning. Originally, the Spanish guitar was strung with pig’s gut strings that gave a sweet, gentle, slightly muted sound. The classical guitar is made for any melodic pieces but particularly suited to old fashioned classical music.
The Flamenco Guitar is very similar to the classical guitar: Main difference between this and a classical guitar is that the fretboard of the Flamenco guitar is even wider and longer
Acoustic or Folk Guitar is similar in compared to the Spanish guitar. The main differences are that its fretboard is narrower and built with more strength to cope with greater tension, the sound-box is sometimes slightly larger and the strings
are made of nylon or steel. The sound these make is smaller and more "crisp". The acoustic guitar is very popular with folk musicians on both sides of the Pacific, who have little problem playing complex finger-picking styles on them. IF you are interested in playing rhythms, doing a lot of heavy strumming, like taking your first steps in rock, like using a variety of tunings or if you wanting to play jazz and blues rock and you give the acoustic guitar a serious consideration.
Electric guitars need to be plugged into an electric amplifier for any sound to be heard. Electric guitars are usually completely solid and can be extremely heavy. When you are playing this type of guitar wear a comfortable shoulder strap. Most electric guitars have a thin, hollow sound-box in which the electric gadgetry is concealed. Electric guitars are usually more lightweight, and can make a variety of sounds from "classical" through to a Stratocaster. This type off guitar is used for rock, pop concerts and playing in venues where loud amplification is needed.
The bass (guitar) usually carries less than 4 strings and often comes with a no fret neck. The intonation of the bass guitar is similar as for the bottom four strings of a electric guitar but down one octave, and its strings are therefore made to be thicker and heavier. The bass is mainly used for laying down thick beefy sounds and usually used for keeping the rhythm and accompany the drums. In the majority of rock bands the bassist rather than the drummer holds the band's rhythm together.
