History of Get Out Your Guitar Day
Today, guitars are taken out of closets and cases, to be played for yourself, for family, friends, and strangers. Why? Because it's Get Out Your Guitar Day! Guitars can be transported without difficulty and are among the easiest to learn, meaning they can be carried out and taken anywhere music is welcomed or needed, and many People who have them sit around their house and can buy them. Go out and at least play a few chords.
Guitars are said to have started appearing in Spain in the early sixteenth century. Over the centuries, the number of strings on a guitar changed, until guitars with six strings — tuned to E, A, D, G, B, and E — became the norm. However, guitars with a different number of strings are made, such as with four, seven, eight, ten, and twelve strings. Strings are usually made of steel or nylon and are plucked with fingers, nails, or a guitar neck.
Besides strings, the guitar is also composed of a body, a neck, a neck, and a buckle. When plucked, the opposite hand holds the neck and forms positions on the fretboard for notes. There are acoustic, classical, and electric guitars, which can have flat, hollow, or semi-hollow bodies. They can be used as rhythm or lead instruments or both, and are used in all types of music, from classical, traditional, regional and folk, to jazz, rock, metal, rap and punk.

What do you do for Get Out Your Guitar Day?
Back from the attic? Ready to get started? Agree! Great! Start. The first way I recommend celebrating is to gather all your friends together. Ask them to take their guitar (air or hero version) and come. Order some pizza, pour some drinks and ice away! No, you don't have to practice a month in advance, mistakes make memories! If you can't get friends or family involved, organize your own celebration. Take that piano and just sit with your eyes closed and think about the dreams, the joys, the ups and downs that you two have gone through together. Relive the glorious moments. Now take all your stress and worries away and just pluck those strings and let the music take you to a place where you can be whatever you want to be!
Take advantage of the technology we have today and record your time of the day. Prepare your phone and record your songs. Share what you can do with those who can't make it to your celebration on YouTube, Facebook, and other social media. Show them how awesome you are! Maybe next year they'll join you instead of staying away! While you post that video on your favorite social media (or all of them!), don't forget to share it with us!
But what if you are new to the guitar? What if you've never picked one before in your life? Well, one of the things you can do is commit to learning the guitar. You can choose Get Out Your Guitar Day as the first day of your lifelong love affair with the guitar. If you don't have a guitar, you can also get out of the house to your local music store and try some pieces for yourself, both acoustic and electric.
Get Out Your Guitar Day is also an occasion for you to reminisce a bit.
