Maybe i should write it down in my will for her :-)

i must show anu how to get one for herself.........

anu said...

Hey Dr? i just noticed..the last guitar does not have vertical strings. It just has horizontal strings. Why's that? How am i supposed to play it if it does not have vertical strings?

dr.alistair said...

the vertical strings are called frets. the last guitar neck is fretless for playing a fretless style which, while mostly used on the bass guitar, is used on the six string models occasionally. you can slide your fingers more freely without frets and it produces a sort of trombone or violin effect.

Thank you. So they are the frets.

Why dont they have zig-zack strings or diagnoal strings? They may make different sounds too, wouldnt they?

Dont his fingers hurt? Those strings look so sharp.

Wow i am liking the guitar. It must feel so good to stand with that magnificient instrument and play right?

I'm going to learn to play a guitar. Then i will to the sea-side and light a fire there and play a guitar to myself.

those strings are wound tight around the tuning pegs at the end of the neck and are secured onto the body of the guitar at the other end. they are very sharp and it takes a while to get used to the feeling of them under your fingers.
it feelis magnificent to stand with a guitar and play. and peaceful and enlightening and a million other emotions too.
