What is electric guitar? Electric guitar is an instrument that is fretted and usually has six strings. Played with both hands by strumming or plucking the strings using either pick or the fingernails. Electric guitar is an instrument that use one or more pickups to convert the vibration of strings into electrical signals. The vibration occurs when a guitar player strums, plucks, fingerpicks, slaps or taps the strings. The pickup generally uses electromagnetic induction to create this signal, which being relatively weak is fed into a guitar amplifier before being sent to the speaker(s), which converts it into audible sound. The electric signal can be electronically altered to change the timbre of the sound. Often, the signal is modified using effects such as reverb, distortion, delay, chorus and "overdrive"; the latter is considered to be a key element of electric blues guitar music and rock guitar playing.
