The guitar.

The guitar is an instrument with six strings which are plucked or strummed with the fingers. It has a range of just over three octaves, the lowest note being an E and the highest being an A.

The guitar is especially good for accompanying songs but is also an instrument in its own right and can play chords, simple melody lines and complicated musicial compositions.
