The technology I chose was the electric guitar which drastically changed the music world for the better. According to Guitar History Facts website, electric guitars have a hollow, semi-hollow and solid body. They don’t rely on chamber acoustic to produce tones, and the presence of hollow body can cause feedback and unintentional vibrations of the strings.” Instead of relying fully on natural acoustics of the guitar shape and string vibration, the electric guitar creates sound directly from the strings itself. Some different types of electric guitars include “solid body, chambered bodies, semi-acoustic, full hollow-body, and electric acoustic” (Guitar History Facts).

I myself play an electric acoustic guitar. What’s great about it is that I can play it with the acoustics and string vibration sound while also amplifying those same sounds when I plug it in. I haven’t played a solid body electric guitar but I would like to one day. In many songs I listen to, the intro usually has a melody produced by an electric guitar or keyboard. I want to learn how to play this on the solid body electric guitar one day.

The song I chose is “Fix My Eyes” by Kings Kaleidoscope which consists of multiple genres (Christian, rock, indie…). Throughout the piece, the electric guitar can be clearly heard as the artist is playing it using chords.
