The word "guitar" comes from the Spanish "guittara," which comes from the Arabic "qitar," which comes from the Greek "kithara." It's easy to see that this musical instrument has been around for a long time and in many different cultures. Typically having six strings, variations have as few as four and as many as twelve strings.
Elvis Presley, Frank Zappa, Bruce Springsteen, and Bob Dylan are a few of the many musicians who have kept the guitar in the forefront of entertainment. Today's virtual guitars make it possible for anyone to learn how to play, whether you own a real guitar or not.
