Today I'd like to share with you how the guitar as an instrument or for that matter any string instrument really works. You might know patterns like put your fingers in a certain style. That's called chords. This can be high, low and medium speed. However, if we consider that how guitar really works, what's really happening is we just have different vibration speeds by thicker, heavier strings go slower and thin strings go faster. 😎
If we go deeply, we can shorten the strings by pushing down. And then the string is touching. That metal piece, which is called a fret, and by touching that, it can't move. So the moving part of the string is smaller. Then, we can speed up the strings by shortening them.
We can take this thick string and speed it up until it vibrates the same speed as this thinner string at full length. Upper corner of the guitar, we have tuners that change the tension of the string. When we are loosening the tension, the sound will be slower. If we are tightening the string, the sound will be higher. We can use a guitar tuner for tuning the guitar. If we don’t have a guitar tuner, we can use our mobile phone as a guitar tuner by using simple application. Normally, most of professional musicians don’t need these type of things. Because, they can tune any guitar by listening the sound carefully and accurately.
The combination of strings and proper finger touching in a certain pattern, we can create a dulcet rhythm tone. Then we can sing any song according to that rhythm tone. But you have to keep in your mind about exact guitar chords of that song. If not, the sound will not be suitable for your song.
That's something about my introduction of guitar. A nice combination of guitar and your mind can create a better relaxation for your life. So, try to play guitar. It will be really enjoyable. 😍
Thank you !
