The Strings Instrument
The string instrument produces sound by means of vibrating strings. According to the musical instrument classification under the Hornbostel-Sachs scheme, they are also called chordophones. The most common string instruments are guitar, electric bass, violin, viola, banjo, mandolin cello, double bass, ukulele, and harp.
All string instruments create sound from one or more vibrating strings. The sound is then conveyed to the air by the body of the instrument or by a pickup, as in the case of electronically amplified instruments. The Strings instruments are generally grouped by the technique used for vibrating the strings, which are plucking, bowing and striking. Some instruments also have strings attached to keyboards. The player uses the keyboard instead of directly playing the strings. Some of the examples include the piano, the clavichord, and the harpsichord. A string of a precise tension and length will produce only one note. Therefore, to obtain multiple notes, string instruments make use of one of two methods.
Strings instrument is also used in a mambo, but it is more often used in songs where wind instruments are not. Strings include guitar and a small complement of orchestral strings. It is also common to see Solo violin in Mambo.
The fast spread of a global culture has seen the extension of the Strings instruments to and from the country. Now used in the world stage in various collaborations with international artists, these musical instruments have made their place in music. Some of the modern and popular Strings instruments are Bass Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, Electric Guitar, Violin, Mandolin, Viola etc.
