The acoustic guitar is perhaps the most popular of all types of musical instruments. Without it, it is difficult to imagine gypsy songs and dances, tourist and hiking culture, author's song. Blues, country, pop, classical music, romantic declarations of love, feasts, courtyard companies, fiery Latin American rhythms - this wonderful instrument is closely connected with all this! It can be responsible both exclusively for the accompaniment and for the melodic line - it all depends on the performer's skill, and due to its versatility and versatility, it is widely in demand among both professionals and amateurs.
The roots and origins are still debated. Some scholars consider it a descendant of the ancient Greek instruments - the lute and the lyre (there is an opinion that the name itself came from “kifar” - a kind of lyre), others put forward a hypothesis about the ancient Egyptian origin (in particular, the name itself is derived from the ancient four-stringed Persian chartar, and namely the chartar is considered the ancestor of the modern six-string guitar). It is only known for certain that the current instrument was widespread in Spain already in the 15th century AD.
"Symbol of philistinism"
In the late 19th - early 20th centuries, during the heyday of symphonic and opera music, the acoustic guitar was perceived as something primitive, suitable only for performing urban romances and serenades. And in tsarist Russia and later in the USSR, it was considered a symbol of philistinism. This fact especially delighted the cartoonists: in order to ridicule a person in the eyes of society, it was enough to portray him with this instrument in his hands. Only in Spain did it not lose its positions, and such Spanish virtuoso musicians as Francisco Tarrega and Andrés Segovia rediscovered the instrument to the general public and revived interest in it. Guitar classes began to appear again in music schools, and musical instrument factories launched their various varieties into mass production due to the increasing demand. Today the query “buy acoustic guitar” is one of the most frequent queries in search engines.
Acoustic guitar has evolved in several varieties , each designed for a specific musical genre. Thus, the classical guitar, which retained the shape and sound of its medieval ancestor, found its place in the classics and organically fits into the sound of flamenco. Due to the forms and depth of sound, "Western" most often performs rhythmic functions in the instrumental composition. Folk or jumbo varieties are ideal for country, blues and folk tunes. Naturally, these divisions are very conditional, and the possibilities of using this or that type directly depend on the level of the performer's skill.
