Let's face it - in the music world, guitars set the standard for "cool." Since the 1950s, many of the greatest performers in rock 'n' roll, blues, and country have played the guitar. Playing electric guitar can put you out in front of a band, where you're free to roam, sing, and make eye contact with your adoring fans.

And playing any kind of guitar can bring out the music in your soul and become a valued lifetime hobby.
