Blog about guitarists

Are you going to organize a cowboy party for your youngest son and are you looking for a surprise for him? Do you feel that one last detail for that evening of tapas and dancing with friends is still missing? Or are you and your partner fans of rock 'n roll, and want a live performance on your wedding day? A guitarist could be a great idea to fulfill all these great ideas. A live performance by a musician can be that authentic touch that makes your party or event unforgettable for everyone present.

Booking a guitarist does not have to be difficult, but it is useful to have at least a general idea of what kind of party you are going to organize and the type of guitar that fits best with that. Booking a guitarist is one thing, but there is a lot of variation in the field of guitars. There are many different types of guitars such as classical, Spanish, jazz, and electric that are all unique in their sound but will not fit well with every type of party.

For this reason, it is a good idea to work with a company that has experience in the field of booking guitarists. At Evenses, we have an extensive portfolio of professional guitarists with whom we have worked with countless times. We are happy to make that expertise and experience available so that you can book the perfect guitarist for your party. You can reach our event specialists seven days a week via the quotation form on our website, or by e-mail or telephone. If you first want to explore yourself first, you can use our search engine. In addition, we will also discuss guitar music in more detail below and why it can be such a good idea to book a guitarist.

A piece of guitar history

The first guitar-like instruments were used centuries ago in different regions of the world. These early cases were mainly instruments that can be compared to the contemporary guitar because they were also played with strings. Consider, for example, the kithara, a stringed instrument from Greek antiquity, or the Early Medieval citole. Both were string instruments, having clear similarities with the modern guitar, but there are considerable differences based on, among other things, the use and sound. Nevertheless, such instruments are seen as the precursors of the guitar, which means that the roots of the guitar go as far back as the Middle Ages and beyond.

When booking a guitarist, however, most people are looking for a contemporary type of guitar, not a singer with a lute or a kithara. The guitar belongs to the family of instruments called the chordophones, whose production of sound depends on vibrating strings. Among the chordophones are common string instruments such as the violin and the guitar, but also keyboard instruments such as the piano. If we are talking specifically about the guitar, we are talking about a so-called compound chordophone, which means that the resonator (another word for the soundboard, where the tone and the strength of the sound is determined) of the instrument is integral is part of the whole. In other words, with this group of chordophones, the resonator cannot be removed without the instrument becoming unplayable.

The earliest version of the contemporary guitar, at least based on the shape and construction principles, is the beautiful Spanish baroque guitar from the end of the sixteenth century. Towards the end of the eighteenth century this so-called "guitarra española" got a sixth pair of strings, a principle that we still see in many modern guitars. The Spanish guitar maker Antonio de Torres Jurado, also known as "the father of the modern classical guitar", built the first versions of the classical guitars in 1884, which are still very popular today.

One guitar is not the other

It has been mentioned earlier that there are different types of guitars, each with its own history, form, and sound. From beautifully decorated Spanish guitars and flamenco guitars, to bass guitars and electric guitars, there is a lot of variation within the family of the guitar. For this reason, and to provide you with some extra information in case you want to book a guitarist, it is interesting to briefly go into some of the most common types of guitar.

To start with, there is of course the classic Spanish guitar. This guitar has actually formed the basis for almost all other types of guitar that we know today. It is certainly within the family of Spanish guitars that include the flamenco guitar and steel string guitar. The sound comes from two types of strings: nylon strings and bass strings with metal-wrapped silk fibers. Among others, Spanish guitarist Narciso Yepes and American guitarist Randy Rhoads (member of Ozzy Osbourne) are world-famous players of the classical guitar.

The American Wild West has been long known to be synonymous with guitars are their musicality. The typical western guitar, which is also called steel string guitar, is an acoustic guitar with steel strings. Just like the Spanish guitar, the western guitar also has six strings and this type of guitar is often referred to as simply "the acoustic guitar", especially in contrast to the electric guitar. That is because the western guitar has become synonymous with "the guitar" in the last hundred years, mainly due to the American entertainment sector.

Another very popular type of guitar is the electric guitar, even though the first version of this type was not built until the early 1930s. Only from the first official recording with an electric guitar, in 1937 by the American jazz guitarist Eddie Durham, did this type of guitar really gain popularity. In the decades that followed, the electric guitar became an indispensable part of a variety of music genres, ranging from blues and jazz to rock and pop music. There are also various designs within the family of the electric guitar, including the solid body and the hollow body. The American rocker Jimi Hendrix, the English guitarist of the Rolling Stones Keith Richards and the English rock and blues singer Eric Clapton, are considered virtuosos with the electric guitar.

A final type of guitar that is also worth mentioning due to its popularity in the West is the bass guitar. There are both electric and acoustic bass guitars, and both are very similar to the normal (read: non-bass) electric guitar and acoustic guitar, respectively. In the case of the electric bass guitar, both the tones and the number of strings can differ from a normal electric guitar, while an acoustic bass guitar has a lower pitch than a normal acoustic guitar and often also has just four strings.

There are also important differences between normal guitars and bass guitars in terms of the shape of the sound box and the sound produced. Both the electric and acoustic bass guitar plays a different role in music than the normal electric and acoustic guitar. This is mainly due to the fact that the bass guitar belongs to the rhythm section.

What kind of music does a guitarist play?

A guitarist can play different types of music, from rock to pop and classical. Guitarists often offer a wide repertoire of music pieces, but it is always good to inquire about what types of music a guitarist can play.

How can I determine which instrument is suitable for the event?

The type of instrument you choose depends on the type of event you are organizing and the atmosphere you want to create. For example, if you are organizing a formal business meeting, different instruments are appropriate than for a festive occasion. Get advice with a description of the occasion and the guests. We are happy to help.

Does the music duo need technology?

This depends on the needs of the music duo and the type of event. Music duos often have their own equipment, but it is always good to inquire whether you need to make provisions for the duo.

What happens during bands breaks?

During the breaks, the band provides atmospheric music which they play over their sound system. The music is of course in line with the music played during the performance. Some bands come with a DJ, who will then provide the music. Of course you can also book a DJ for the breaks with all live bands.

How far in advance are bands ready?

The live band is ready to start 30 minutes prior to the performance. This means that everything has been built up and sound checked. It is also possible to agree that the live band will be ready to start earlier in advance. The band members will of course spend more time on the assignment, which is why they will charge a fee for this waiting time.

What is included in the price?

Everything required for a successful performance is beach standard included. So the price is all-inclusive and there are no additional costs. Included are:
