Guitar samples are audio recordings of individual notes, chords, or even entire melodies, played on a guitar. They are used in a variety of music genres, from pop and rock to rap, hip-hop and various forms of electronic music. Guitar samples can be utilized in many different ways to create both simple as well as sophisticated melodies. They can be looped to create catchy song segments and altered to fit any song type and music genre, and they are generally easy to use, implement and alter. And, just like their drum counterparts, sampling guitars can be a real life saver, if you are having trouble booking a guitarist for your recording session.
Guitar samples in pop culture have been mostly popularized by rap, electro, R&B and pop songs, where they are utilized as melodies and harmony segments. Electric guitar samples are a great addition to rap, hip-hop and electronic songs as they can energize song segments with their raw, punchy tones, while pop ballads often use acoustic guitar samples as they are mellow, emotional and pleasant. Every guitar has its own unique sound, and when it comes to acoustic guitars the different available string types all have a significant impact on the overall guitar sound. For example, nylon strings have more of a mellow sound, while steel strings are generally harsher and brighter.
