In the s, the tonal palette of the electric guitar was further modified by introducing effect units in its signal path, before the guitar amp, of which one of the earliest units was the fuzz pedal. Effects units come in several formats, the most common of which are the stompbox "pedal" and the rackmount unit.
A stomp box or pedal is a small metal or plastic box containing the circuitry, which is placed on the floor in front of the musician and connected in line with the patch cord connected to the instrument. The box is typically controlled by one or more foot-pedal on-off switches and it typically contains only one or two effects. Pedals are smaller than rackmount effects and usually less expensive.
A rackmount effects unit may contain an electronic circuit nearly identical to a stompbox-based effect, but it is mounted in a standard 19" equipment rack, which is usually mounted in a road case that is designed to protect the equipment during transport. More recently, as signal-processing technology continuously becomes more feature-dense, rack-mount effects units frequently contain several types of effects.
They are typically controlled by knobs or switches on the front panel, and often by a MIDI digital control interface. A multi-effects device also called a "multi-FX" device is a single electronics effects pedal or rack-mount device that contains many electronic effects.
In the late s and throughout the s, multi-FX manufacturers such as Zoom and Korg produced devices that were increasingly feature-laden. Multi-FX devices combine several effects together, and most devices allow users to use preset combinations of effects, including distortion, chorus, reverb, compression, and so on.
This allows musicians to have quick on-stage access to different effects combinations. Some multi-FX pedals contain modelled versions of well-known effects pedals or amplifiers.
Multi-effects devices have garnered a large share of the effects device market, because they offer the user such a large variety of effects in a single package. A low-priced multi-effects pedal may provide 20 or more effects for the price of a regular single-effect pedal.
More expensive multi-effect pedals may include 40 or more effects, amplifier modelling, and the ability to combine effects or modelled amp sounds in different combinations, as if the user was using multiple guitar amps. More expensive multi-effects pedals may also include more input and output jacks e.
By the s and s, software effects became capable of replicating the analog effects used in the past. These new digital effects attempt to model the sound produced by analog effects and tube amps, with varying degrees of quality. There are many free guitar effects computer programs that can be downloaded from the Internet.
Now, computers with sound cards can be used as digital guitar effects processors. Although digital and software effects offer many advantages, many guitarists still use analog effects. The sound of a guitar can not only be adapted by electronic sound effects but is also heavily affected by various new techniques developed or becoming possible in combination with electric amplification.
This is called extended technique. Other techniques, such as axial finger vibrato , pull-offs , hammer-ons , palm muting , harmonics and altered tunings , are also used on the classical and acoustic guitar.
Shred guitar is a genre involving a number of extended techniques. Unlike acoustic guitars, solid-body electric guitars have no vibrating soundboard to amplify string vibration. Instead, solid-body instruments depend on electric pickups and an amplifier or amp and speaker. The solid body ensures that the amplified sound reproduces the string vibration alone, thus avoiding the wolf tones and unwanted feedback associated with amplified acoustic guitars.
These guitars are generally made of hardwood covered with a hard polymer finish, often polyester or lacquer. In large production facilities, the wood is stored for three to six months in a wood-drying kiln before being cut to shape. Premium custom-built guitars are frequently made with much older, hand-selected wood. One of the first solid-body guitars was invented by Les Paul. Gibson did not present their Gibson Les Paul guitar prototypes to the public, as they did not believe the solid-body style would catch on.
Another early solid-body Spanish style guitar, resembling what would become Gibson's Les Paul guitar a decade later, was developed in by O. Appleton, of Nogales, Arizona. The first mass-produced solid-body guitar was Fender Esquire and Fender Broadcaster later to become the Fender Telecaster , first made in , five years after Les Paul made his prototype.
The Gibson Les Paul appeared soon after to compete with the Broadcaster. The history of Electric Guitars is summarized by Guitar World magazine, and the earliest electric guitar on their top 10 list is the Ro-Pat-In Electro A "Frying Pan" described as 'The first-fully functioning solid-body electric guitar to be manufactured and sold'. These hollows are designed specifically not to interfere with the critical bridge and string anchor point on the solid body.
In the case of Gibson and PRS, these are called chambered bodies. The motivation for this may be to reduce weight, to achieve a semi-acoustic tone see below or both.
Semi-acoustic guitars have a hollow body similar in depth to a solid-body guitar and electronic pickups mounted on the body. They work in a similar way to solid-body electric guitars except that, because the hollow body also vibrates, the pickups convert a combination of string and body vibration into an electrical signal.
Whereas chambered guitars are made, like solid-body guitars, from a single block of wood, semi-acoustic and full-hollowbody guitars bodies are made from thin sheets of wood.
They do not provide enough acoustic volume for live performance, but they can be used unplugged for quiet practice. Semi-acoustics are noted for being able to provide a sweet, plaintive, or funky tone. They are used in many genres, including blues, funk , sixties pop, and indie rock. They generally have cello-style F-shaped sound holes.
These can be blocked off to prevent feedback, as in B. King 's famous Lucille. Feedback can also be reduced by making them with a solid block in the middle of the soundbox. Full hollow-body guitars have large, deep bodies made of glued-together sheets, or "plates", of wood. They can often be played at the same volume as an acoustic guitar and therefore can be used unplugged at intimate gigs. They qualify as electric guitars inasmuch as they have fitted pickups.
Historically, archtop guitars with retrofitted pickups were among the very earliest electric guitars. The instrument originated during the Jazz Age , in the s and s, and are still considered the classic jazz guitar nicknamed "jazzbox". Like semi-acoustic guitars, they often have f-shaped sound holes. Having humbucker pickups sometimes just a neck pickup and usually strung heavlly, jazzboxes are noted for their warm, rich tone.
A variation with single-coil pickups, and sometimes with a Bigsby tremolo , has long been popular in country and rockabilly ; it has a distinctly more twangy, biting tone than the classic jazzbox.
The term archtop refers to a method of construction subtly different from the typical acoustic or "folk" or "western" or "steel-string" guitar: Some steel-string acoustic guitars are fitted with pickups purely as an alternative to using a separate microphone. They may also be fitted with a piezoelectric pickup under the bridge, attached to the bridge mounting plate, or with a low-mass microphone usually a condenser mic inside the body of the guitar that converts the vibrations in the body into electronic signals.
Such instruments are called electric acoustic guitars. They are regarded as acoustic guitars rather than electric guitars, because the pickups do not produce a signal directly from the vibration of the strings, but rather from the vibration of the guitar top or body. Electric acoustic guitars should not be confused with semi-acoustic guitars , which have pickups of the type found on solid-body electric guitars, or solid-body hybrid guitars with piezoelectric pickups.
The one-string guitar is also known as the Unitar. Although rare, the one-string guitar is sometimes heard, particularly in Delta blues , where improvised folk instruments were popular in the s and s. Eddie "One String" Jones had some regional success.
In a more contemporary style, Little Willie Joe, the inventor of the Unitar , had a rhythm and blues instrumental hit in the s with "Twitchy", recorded with the Rene Hall Orchestra. The four-string guitar is better known as the tenor guitar. One of its best-known players was Tiny Grimes , who played on 52nd Street with the beboppers and played a major role in the Prestige Blues Swingers.
Multi-instrumentalist Warren Ellis musician of Dirty Three and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds is a contemporary player who includes a tenor guitar in his repertoire. The tenor guitar can also be tuned like a soprano, concert, or tenor ukulele, using versions of GCEA tuning. Most seven-string guitars add a low B string below the low E. Both electric and classical guitars exist designed for this tuning. A high A string above the high E instead of the low B string is sometimes used.
Another less common seven-string arrangement is a second G string situated beside the standard G string and tuned an octave higher, in the same manner as a twelve-stringed guitar see below. Seven-string electric guitars were popularized among rock players in the s by Steve Vai.
Along with the Japanese guitar company Ibanez , Vai created the Universe series seven-string guitars in the s, with a double locking tremolo system for a seven-string guitar.
These models were based on Vai's six-string signature series, the Ibanez Jem. Metal musicians often prefer the seven-string guitar for its extended lower range. The seven-string guitar has also played an essential role in progressive metal rock and is commonly used in bands such as Dream Theater and Pain of Salvation and by experimental guitarists such as Ben Levin.
Eight-string electric guitars are rare but not unused. One is played by Charlie Hunter , which was manufactured by Novax Guitars. The largest manufacturer of eight- to string instruments is Warr Guitars. Their models are used by Trey Gunn ex King Crimson , who has his own signature line from the company. Munky of the nu metal band KoRn is also known to use seven-string Ibanez guitars, and it is rumored that he is planning to release a K8 eight-string guitar similar to his K7 seven-string guitar.
Another Ibanez player is Tosin Abasi , lead guitarist of the progressive metal band Animals as Leaders , who uses an Ibanez RG to mix bright chords with very heavy low riffs on the seventh and eighth strings.
Jethro Tull 's first album uses a nine-string guitar. Bill Kelliher , guitarist for the heavy metal group Mastodon , worked with First Act on a custom mass-produced nine-string guitar. Rich manufactured a ten-string six- course electric guitar, the Bich, whose radical shape positioned the machine heads for the four secondary strings onto the body, avoiding the head-heaviness of many electric twelve-string guitars.
However, many players bought it for the body shape or electrics and simply removed the extra strings. The company recognized this and released six-string models of the Bich, a shape now generally incorporated into their standard Warlock.
Twelve-string electric guitars feature six pairs of strings, usually with each pair tuned to the same note. The pairs of strings are played together as one, so the technique and tuning are the same as a conventional guitar, but they create a much fuller tone, with the additional strings adding a natural chorus effect. They are used almost solely to play harmony and rhythm parts, rather than for guitar solos. They are relatively common in folk rock music. Lead Belly is the folk artist most identified with the twelve-string guitar, usually acoustic with a pickup.
George Harrison of the Beatles and Roger McGuinn of the Byrds brought the electric twelve-string to notability in rock and roll. McGuinn began using electric twelve-string guitars to create the jangly, ringing sound of the Byrds. Both Jimmy Page , the guitarist with Led Zeppelin , and Leo Kottke , a solo artist, are well known as twelve-string guitar players.
The third-bridge guitar is an electric prepared guitar with an additional, third bridge. This can be a normal guitar with, for instance, a screwdriver placed under the strings, or it can be a custom-made instrument. Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth plays with a third bridge. Double-neck or, less commonly, "twin-neck" guitars enable guitarists to play both guitar and bass guitar or, more commonly, both a six-string and a twelve-string.
Another early user was John McLaughlin. Muse guitarist and vocalist Matthew Bellamy uses a silver Manson double-neck on his band's Resistance Tour. Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson is also known for using double-neck guitars in the live performance of several songs. In performances of the song "Xanadu" during the band's R40 anniversary tour, Lifeson played a white Gibson EDS double-neck guitar with six-string and twelve-string necks, while bassist Geddy Lee performed with a double-neck Rickenbacker guitar with four-string bass and twelve-string guitar necks.
Popular music typically uses the electric guitar in two roles: In some bands with two guitarists, both may play in tandem, and trade off rhythm and lead roles. In bands with a single guitarist, the guitarist may switch between these roles, playing chords to accompany the singer's lyrics, and a solo. In the most commercially available and consumed pop and rock genres, electric guitars tend to dominate their acoustic cousins in both the recording studio and live venues, especially in the "harder" genres such as heavy metal and hard rock.
However the acoustic guitar remains a popular choice in country , western and especially bluegrass music , and it is widely used in folk music. Even metal and hard rock guitarists play acoustic guitars for some ballads and for MTV unplugged acoustic performances.
Jazz guitar playing styles include rhythm guitar-style " comping " accompanying with jazz chord voicings and in some cases, walking basslines and "blowing" improvising solos over jazz chord progressions with jazz-style phrasing and ornaments. The accompanying style for electric guitar in most jazz styles differs from the way chordal instruments accompany in many popular styles of music. In rock and pop, the rhythm guitarist typically performs chords in dense and regular fashion to define a tune's rhythm.
Simpler music tends to use chord voicings focused on the first, third, and fifth notes of the chord. In contrast, more complex music styles of pop might intermingle periodic chords and delicate voicings into pauses in the melody or solo. Complex guitar chord voicings are often have no root , especially in chords that have more than six notes.
Such chords typically emphasize the third and seventh notes of the chord. These chords also often include the 9th, 11th and 13th notes of the chord, which are called extensions , or color notes. When guitarists who play jazz and other more complex styles improvise , they use scales, modes, and arpeggios associated with the chord progression.
The must learn how to use scales whole tone scale, chromatic scale, etc. Soloists try to imbue melodic phrasing with the sense of natural breathing and legato phrasing used by players of other instruments.
Jazz guitarists are influenced by trumpet, saxophone, and other horn players. Celtic fingerstyle players are influenced pipes and fiddles. Jazz guitarists typically play hollow-body instruments, but also use solid-body guitars. Choose a web site to get translated content where available and see local events and offers.

People who have a larger waist are also at greater risk for dyslipidemia, hypertension and stroke. To make sure the results were valid for everyone, the researchers looked at data from, "more than 26 studies covering men and women in many ethnic groups including white European, South Asian, Afro Caribbean and Hispanic.
The ages of subjects in these studies ranged from 18 to years Age was also a consideration. When using BMI, there is a different formula for people under Surprisingly, the simple message "Keep your waist to less than half your height" wound up being valid for children too, because their waist circumference expands as their height increases with age.
The Body String Test does have flaws. Someone with a small frame may be able to get the string around their waist, but still carry too much fat around their midsection. The fat may be distributed around major organs, which increases your mortality risk. For an even more fine-tuned assessment, you can measure yourself using something called the waist-to-hip ratio.
The big advantages of the Body String Test are that it's simple, fast and cheap. It's also better than the more cumbersome BMI test at predicting who's at long-term risk. None of these tests should replace standard tests or advice given by a medical doctor.
