The guitar is a string instrument whose history dates as far back as 4000 years. Researchers associate it with the lute and oud, which are ancient string instruments. The materials used to make a guitar are plastic or wood, and in some cases, metal. Usually, this instrument has six strings. However, it can have as many as eighteen strings or as few as four. The name guitar originates from the ancient Greek word ‘kithara.’ The kithara was a popular string instrument in ancient Greece.
