The guitar is a popular musical instrument classified as a string instrument with anywhere from 4 to 18 strings, usually having 6. The sound is projected either acoustically or through electrical amplification (for an acoustic guitar or an electric guitar, respectively). It is typically played by strumming or plucking the strings with the right hand while fretting (or pressing against the frets) the strings with the fingers of the left hand. The guitar is a type of chordophone, traditionally constructed from wood and strung with either gut, nylon or steel strings and distinguished from other chordophones by its construction and tuning. The modern guitar was preceded by the gittern, the vihuela, the four-courseRenaissance guitar, and the five-course baroque guitar, all of which contributed to the development of the modern six-string instrument.
There are three main types of modern acoustic guitar: the classical guitar (nylon-string guitar), the steel-string acoustic guitar, and the archtop guitar. The tone of an acoustic guitar is produced by the strings's vibration, amplified by the body of the guitar, which acts as a resonating chamber. The classical guitar is often played as a solo instrument using a comprehensive finger-picking technique. The term "finger-picking" can also refer to a specific tradition of folk, blues, bluegrass, and country guitar playing in the United States.
The song was released to radio stations on June 11, while the CD single format was released worldwide on July 9.
Although not as successful on the charts as many of his other songs, "Guitar" entered the Top 40 of the singles charts in four countries: Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, and Japan, where it peaked at #10 on the singles chart.
Guitar is a solo studio album by American jazz guitarist Sonny Sharrock. He recorded the album with producer Bill Laswell at RPM Sound Studios in New York City. As the project's sole instrumentalist, Sharrock performed and overdubbed his guitar improvisations onto other sections of a song he had recorded beforehand.
When Guitar was released in 1986 by Enemy Records, it received positive reviews from critics, who praised Sharrock's compositions, playing, and use of distortion. The album was named the eighth best record of 1986 by rock critic Robert Christgau, while jazz writer Ian Carr said it epitomized the electric guitar's range as an instrument.
Composition and recording
Guitar was viewed by Sharrock as the culmination of a period in his career spent developing his sense of composition. After releasing his first record Black Woman in 1969, he experimented with different influences during the 1970s. When he recorded "Dance with Me Montana" in 1982, the song's chord progression changed his perspective on composing and inspired him to pursue more melodic ideas: "You listen to [it], and it's like a blind man struggling to get out of a room. Guitar was a crystallization of all of the things that I had discovered in that song." In the early 1980s, he had also worked on projects with Material, an experimental band fronted by Bill Laswell, who helped Sharrock produce the album.
Highly Evolved was recorded and mixed at Sound Factory and Sunset Sound Recorders in Hollywood, California. It was recorded between July 2001 and February 2002. The recording was assisted by Craig Conard, Kevin Dean and Nathan Burden.
"Get Free" was mixed at Enterprise 1, Burbank, California and was assisted by Brian Douglass.
