The instrument that has stood as a cultural icon for many decades and appeals to the masses is none other than the Guitar. There is a certain familiarity, a comfort to the sound of a Guitar that tends to strike a chord in the listener. It’s affordable, and there’s a style for everyone. 
Though Guitar is not as readily available as voice, or as simple as a Piano, it is portable, and it works as great accompaniment for a singer's voice. The versatility of a Guitar makes it an appealing choice for students, both young and old.
