Excerpt from passage

The guitar is a stringed musical instrument which is possibly the most popular instrument in the world today. It is played by the right hand plucking or strumming the strings and the left hand creating the different tones on the neck of the guitar. Sound is produced by the vibration of the strings, which resonate (echo) in the body of the instrument. They are built and repaired by craftsmen called luthiers. Guitars can have many different sounds and are used in almost every type of music.

 

History
The guitar as we know it today is believed to have originated in Spain in the 1400s. However, instruments that are very similar to the guitar have been found in carvings and statues that go back at least 5000 years in ancient Iran and Asia...
