The acoustic guitar – beautiful and royal musical instrument. Every player must have it in the collection. Why is that? Because you can play it everywhere, you don’t need an amplifier or some accessories that need an electric one. This article will take an acoustic guitar review and also we’ll see what types are available.
Acoustic one allows playing and singing with people around you even if you’re outside on a shiny day. But to be honest, every player must know to play acoustic and only then electric. This instrument will teach you the basics and playing itself. So, it’s good to know something more about this musical instrument. This guide will provide what types of guitars are today.
Acoustic one is made of wood (like an electric guitar) and has an empty room inside its body. The empty camera in the body creates sound strumming strings. That’s the main element of it.
It’s much wider than a then electric one. For beginners, this difference in width makes an unusual feeling, but that’s ok. In time you’ll get used to it. Just keep practice.
This article will cover what types of acoustic guitar exist in the World, but, first, let’s review the guitar from a simple point of view.

The acoustic guitar is Royal Musical Instrument
One reason I like is that acoustic guitar doesn’t need an amp. You can take it, place on your feet and play some beautiful melody. Play and sing and feel free. Free of the World and all that rush outside. It takes you to another dimension.
As any string musical instrument, the guitar is made of wood. It can be single wood or it can be made from multiple wood parts, it doesn’t matter – the sound is quite likewise. Some cheaper guitars can sound a little bit worst then expensive ones. Really well-constructed instrument with divine sound, including built-in expensive electronics and built from old-expensive wood parts starts from about 1000$ to 1500$.
That price instrument is a studio-like and it will sound divine. Lower-class guitars sound different, so you can choose the one you like. read the difference in the next guitar guide and you’ll have a better understanding between various instruments.
Some time ago I didn’t really understand what kind of difference is between acoustic and classical guitar and other guitar-like instruments. Well, there’s not much. I’ll explain and make a review in simple steps. There many types of acoustic guitar, but the principle is one – they all sound natural.
The Difference Is Very Simple
First, you need to know that there are two main categories –
Second, all other instruments who look similar (Picasso, Harp, Banjo, Guitar lute, and Russian) to guitar, but they all just string novelty instruments.
This is a steel-stringed instrument. It can be:
or any other guitar type as long it has steel strings. It’s good for chord playing by pick or hand. Acoustic guitar makes a metallic bright sound which is very extensive. It’s perfect for singing and accompaniment. Personally, I like steel-strung more than the nylon ones. My style of playing applies to this instrument because I play with pick mostly. The sound is tuneful and metallic-like. It’s the best for a background.
Guitar type instrument with nylon strings. It can be lighter than acoustic and sound more gently (more intellectually) and not so severe. It’s meant more for fingerstyle playing. The most popular and known is the Flamenco guitar. If you like playing chords and the melody at the same time, then classical guitar could be a perfect instrument.
I really don’t like the strumming sound by hand or pick. It’s like drubbing strings which sound not large enough. This guitar is related more to fingerstyle playing. It’s quite soft and with pleasant sound. It isn’t as sonorous as acoustic guitar and for this reason, it allows combining chord+melody playing. It’s perfect for Apoyando and Tirando techniques.
And that’s about types of guitars review! Others are just novelty string instruments.
I hope, that this guide makes sense about guitar types. If you’re searching for the right instrument, then this was the main difference.
Take care, and practice!
