The Guitar Neck

The guitar neck is a vital component of the instrument. It consists of the fretboard and the truss rod, which helps maintain the neck’s straightness. The fretboard can be a solid piece or have inlays for the frets, typically made of rosewood, ebony, or maple. The truss rod, located inside the neck, can be adjusted to prevent bowing or warping. At the headstock, you’ll find the tuning setup with machine heads and adjusting pegs, as well as string guides to keep the strings in place. The nut, made from materials like ivory or bone, sits at the top of the neck and holds the strings.

In a time when the whole future of how music is distributed is in question, maybe we should look at the history of music for a guide. Many of us find music is a part of our everyday life; both in terms of listening and making… , I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I had the notion that music history was somewhat of an insignificant pursuit.

To be honest, I simply enrolled in a history of classical music course because I needed the credits. I’m sure some of you can relate to that.

These places provided a gathering spot for people to socialize, engage in conversations, and enjoy food and drinks. The proprietors hired different artists to sing and entertain the audience. Eventually, full-fledged shows were staged for public amusement. Music halls evolved into music clubs Trance Music - Free Flowing Electronica - Have you ever found yourself dancing in a club, utterly absorbed in the melody, feeling as if the trance music is flowing through you and guiding your body's movements?

There is something about the rhythmic harmony of sounds in a song, the mood and blend of colors in a painting, and the silhouette of a sculpture that deeply resonates with our souls. Across different art forms, there is something about music that we have always felt we needed, spanning centuries and reaching every corner of the world. Perhaps this is why music has evolved into a multi-billion-dollar industry today.

So, what keeps our interest in this industry alive? There are many factors: the audience, the talent of the artists, promotion and advertising, live performances, image, and more.

While there were notable singers in the past, the voices of artists are now recognized internationally. While many radios and TVs hosted specialized music shows in the past, music TV channels appeared and proved to be highly successful.
