Electric Guitar Diagram with Label Descriptions

A new week of learning as ever.

Monday’s my perfect morning to sit down at my laptop and look over how I want my guitar teaching week to begin.  This week I’ve added some descriptions to the electric guitar diagram I posted last week over at my Free Resources page.  These PDFs are nuggets of information serving use to beginners to introduce the guitar parts.   They are also very useful to those teaching who are looking for a concise reference sheet to prompt info and also to give out to their students.  If you would like any more in-depth information your choices are to 1) Message me  2) Surf the net  3) Pretend you already know everything.  I say the first two may help you find out more but 3) sometimes works!

Mainly I hope you find these as useful as I do when I’m starting to get ideas of what makes up a guitar to my students.

 

It always helps to have an idea of what comprises the tools you are using and getting to know.  For me I love knowing how things work and ultimately I feel more connected to things the more I understand them.  As a beginner it can induce a teeny bit of fear when something so simple as  a string breaks.  The concept of having to replace something you don’t understand can be a bit overwhelming.   Well…I say learn about it, let it break, learn what it does and how it works and get stuck in there…

Any questions just ask!

Happy learning folks 🙂

Electric Guitar Diagram

Well after sitting honing my Illustrator skills I have completed my labelled diagram of an electric guitar.  After playing guitar for 20 years it never ceases to amaze me how much I learn and relearn about things I already thought I knew!

I’m primarily putting up the diagram with labels this week and shall follow with some descriptions of the labels very soon.  The PDF will be again on my Free Resources page to be downloaded and printed at your leisure.

Anatomy of the Electric Guitar diagram

What I have learned through doing this is how many different shapes and sizes and mere ideas of guitars are in existence.  It has made me wish to play every single one of them just to hear and feel the fine – tuning differences.  I only learned yesterday that Pythagoras was responsible for the way we use the divisions of notes in music today.  The physics of music seems to interest me greatly 🙂

My weapons of choice in electric guitar world are currently a Fender Thinline Tele ’72 which has a beautiful sound and my Jackson DK3 from my metal band and University days (this will never leave).  I’m now eyeing up everything..

Enjoy!
