Playing The Guitar Gives You Emotive Expression

By Jimmy J. Stage

One of the most cited differences between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom is our ability to communicate complex ideas, thoughts, plans and emotions. Of course there are plenty of other animals that have basic communication abilities, but none come close to humans in the richness and complexity of human language.

One powerful method that humans have always had over the years is the ability communicate complex, thoughts, emotions and ideas through music. Music has been an integral part of human society even before the agricultural revolution several thousand years ago. Many remains of ancient cave dwellings contain evidence of music and musical instruments.

The consistent improvements and changes made to the musical instruments of the time have also been quite impressive. Starting with simple drums, and moving on to using strings to make different sounds, and then building wood and brass instruments, and finally with today's electrical instruments, the habit of creating consistently better instruments is staggering.

Most people today have hobbies. And one of the most popular hobbies, hands down, is playing a musical instrument. Most people grew up with at least the "idea" of taking piano lessons as a kid. However, there is one instrument that is always the number one choice among adults who choose to play an instrument on their own: The guitar.

The guitar is far and away the most chosen instrument for a variety of reasons. Some like it due to it's portability. Some like the amazingly low price. Still others like it because it is fairly straightforward to learn, and you don't really need to depend on other instruments to play an entire song.

If you've ever wanted to learn the guitar, there's no time like the present. It's easy, it's quick, and you can likely pick up a decent guitar for under a hundred dollars. And the amount of learning material available to you is staggering. Why not get started today? - 32186
