E l e c t r i c g u i t a r s were invented in the USA in the 1930’s. The strings of electric guitars are made of steel and they are played with a small piece of plastic called ‘plectrum’ or also ‘pick’. One of the most popular designs of electric guitar is the Fender Stratocaster. The Stratocaster was first produced in 1954. It is played by many famous guitarists, including Eric Clapton, Keith Richard (Rolling Stones) and The Edge (U2).

Unit 3

M o d e r n c l a s s i c a l guitars, having six strings and a larger body, were first made in Spain by Antonio de Torres in the nineteenth century. Classical guitars are still very popular nowadays. The strings are made of nylon and they are played with your fingers. The top surface of guitars can be solid or laminated. Laminated-top guitars are quite adequate for students, but solid-tops are the only choice for more skilled players.

Dear Eric, Thank you for the book! It was really interesting. Have you got any other about rock? Yesterday, I was so excited that I went to a music shop to buy a guitar, but they were very expensive! I haven’t got enough money to buy one yet, but I’m going to do a few jobs at home and mum is going to give me extra pocket money. Do you need any work done around your house? If I can have some guitar lessons from you, I could cut the grass or clean your windows. My mum thinks it’s a good idea and you can help me quite a lot! Please tell me if anything comes up. See you later, Jim
