Electric Guitar | Wooden Miniature
Most of the music exponents attribute the guitar as a western instrument but quite a few know that guitar was played in the ancient days in India during the Vedic period; the form of music was Samgan. The kachhapi veena was used in this period for solo performances and also as an accompanying instrument. This instrument later on is believed to have migrated to different parts of the world and acquired different names while it vanished from India. The classical gut-string guitar appeared in the musical circles in Madras around the 1840s. The steel string guitar has gained popularity in the North-East region of India and Goa and become mainstream Indian instruments in popular settings and have also occasionally been incorporated in Indian classical music, ghazals and other so-called “light music” forms in India. An electric guitar is powered and amplified by an internal and external electric source or powered by natural resonance and projection from its own body.

India has a rich musical history with its very own musical instruments. Some instruments are used primarily in North Indian music (Hindustani Sangeet), some are used in the south Indian music (Carnatic Sangeet), while others are found in folk music.
