Watch the Guitar Anatomy online guitar lesson by Richard Gilewitz from Guitar Foundations

Guitar Anatomy is basically understanding the names of the internationally recognized guitar parts. While conducting a seminar for children I was once asked by a nervous participant what that was around the hole in the guitar. I simply said, “Well, it’s a guitar!” I believe he actually intended on asking about the guitar pickup that was in the soundhole.

I suppose the point here is that it’s just simply a good idea to know what the parts of the instrument are agreed to be called universally. And yes, around the hole IS a guitar!
