The steel-string acoustic guitar has a larger body size with all steel strings. This produces a brassy sound which is popular for accompanying singers and other instruments. It is usually played with a plectrum (pick) and can also be played with the fingers. Players who study this instrument tend to concentrate on learning chords and popular songs.

The electric guitar grew out of a need for the guitar to be heard in a band setting. It was developed in the USA and was used as rhythm accompaniment in a jazz band. There are two distinct kinds of guitar: single coil pickup (Fender Stratocaster) produces a bright cutting sound (Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix), and the double coil pickup (Gibson) produces a smoother sustained sound (Slash, Santana).

Interesting fact: Players at primary school usually begin on the classical guitar and learn the proper techniques for playing solo guitar and reading music.
