The Electric Guitar has the same tuning as the Classical, Acoustic and Semi-Acoustic guitars. It uses metal strings and its sound is only audible when connected to an amplifier. The sound from the strings is transformed to electric signals by its pickups, which send these signals to the amplifier, where you can create numerous effects. The body of an electric guitar is massive wood because they don’t need a resonance box to amplify the sound of the strings. However, you will be able to explore also the semi-acoustic guitar in this discipline (like the one in the image), finding some differences in the sound quality and effects, as in the way the sound is captured.
