This book gives an overview of the history of the guitar and how it was developed over time to include different styles in different cultures, finally including the modern guitar and electric guitar. With paintings and photographs showcased in a colorful design, this book is sure to capture the attention of anyone interested in the guitar!
I like that the design has small paragraphs of text so that it is easy to read and absorb the snippets of information. As a musician, I really appreciated all the music history, the explanations about types of guitars, the nature of sounds for each instrument, and how different styles developed.
I am so impressed with this colorful book! It gives the reader reliable facts about history and how the guitar has evolved, and sparks the imagination. The joy of music is evident on every page!
It was so cool to see the step-by-step process of how modern guitars are made.
I really liked the timeline at the end of the book showing the development of the guitar over time, and milestones in guitar music throughout the ages. There is also a section about famous guitarists with a little bit of information about how they pioneered new styles of music using the guitar.
