Guitar Picking by Choice

 


Visitors: 175

Vibrations, pitch, amplified sound that is coming from a guitar that is being plucked or strummed directly from someone's fingers with a flat pick. A pick is held between the thumb and fingers, or some will use plectrums that are curled so that they can be worn individually on the thumb and each finger, Banjo players prefer plectrums to pick with.

Have you thought about where the guitar sounds come from. The sounds of notes or chords come from holding the strings down against the neck of the guitar with the left hand. The frets on the neck are raised embedded metal thin bars. The guitar strings when picked or strummed vibrate until held down on the frets. Classical guitars are the most popular among the different types. The strings of the classical guitars are made from nylon and they are commonly used to play classical music.

Steel guitars often don't have raised frets which would interfere with the gliding pitch sound that a steel guitar makes. The pitches on a steel guitar are changed by the sliding of a steel bar up and down the strings, hence the name steel guitar.

The difference between a acoustic or electric guitar is that when playing a acoustic guitar it has a basic sound opposed to and electric guitar with its thin and twang sound unless it is amplified. The electric guitar also has a whammy bar to produce a crying guitar sound.

The rich low sound of a bass guitar comes with usually less than 4 strings and frequently with a fretless neck. The tuning of the bass guitar is the same as for the bottom four strings of a electric guitar but down one octave, and the strings are thus heavier and thicker. The bass is used for laying down thick deep sounds and mainly used for the rhythm and keeping with the drums.
