I know that there are three kinds of guitars used on DL: electric, steel and acoustic.

can someone tell me on what songs are these guitars used and the differences and/or similarites between all three? thanks :)

god and peace,

acoustic in a non electric geetar. (Garth, James, Debbie, Mark, Steve and Stephanie Davis) it doesn't sound the same as a electric geetar does when it has a pick up on or in it. it has a full sweet sound even amplified. it can be tuned normal or to a key

electric geetar (James Garver, Steve, Garth, you can make it sound several different ways, buy turning the knobs that you see, using the wah bar, and stepping on pedals patched into the sound board. it can sound clean, dirty, or that long spacey thing that James does sometimes, (that i just love to death hehehe) doens't make much of a sound when you don't have it plugged in tho. it can be tuned normal or in a key too

steel geetar is the geetar that Steve plays. it looks like a square electric geetar turned face up and is played by plucking the strings and using the slide (that little metal bar he holds) some also have pedals. it's tuned to a key.

bass geetar (Mark) has 4-6 strings and is the bass notes of the songs.
when you play a chord on a regular geetar the lowest note will be the bass note.

oh yeah an the fiddle, is a violin. if you play classical music ie Beethoveen then its a violin if you play bluegrass, irish tradi. its a fiddle.

Very cool info D! It's hard to live in Music City and be as musically stupid as I am.

by the way, I've always been curious, why do you spell guitar that way?
