GUEST,Steve Parkes Too many strings on a guitar? (44) RE: Too many strings on a guitar? 07 Mar 01

Shambles, the whole point of the guitar is youu can play chords easily because the interval between the strings is so small (4ths instead of 5ths, so 4 fingers = 4 frets). 6 strings gives you a decent range (2 octaves on open string) and lets you play bass & melody at the same time. Mandlin-type instruments, on the other hand, are great for melody. I know, 'cos I play both equally badly.
