FAQs about hiring Guitarists in Bolton

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

What styles of music can a solo guitarist play?

While some guitarists specialise in certain genres, the acoustic guitar may be used to play practically any form of music, including flamenco, pop, jazz, folk, and classical, while the electric guitar is utilised for rock 'n' roll and heavy metal. The following are the most common genres among Encore customers wishing to hire a guitarist: - Pop Covers (sometimes with a loop pedal) - Spanish Jazz Classical Many guitarists are versatile and enjoy performing a variety of repertoire at the same event. For example, you may start with a set of laid-back jazz music and then switch to a set of more energetic Spanish music.

What are the different types of guitar available?

1. Acoustic Guitar: An acoustic guitar is a traditional guitar that uses only an acoustic soundboard to help transmit the strings energy into the air to produce its sound. They are versatile and commonly used in various music genres. 2. Classical Guitar: Classical guitars are a type of acoustic guitar specifically designed for classical music. They have nylon strings which produce a mellow and warm tone, and a wide neck, allowing for specific fingerpicking techniques. 3. Electro-Acoustic Guitar: An electro-acoustic guitar is essentially an acoustic guitar fitted with a pickup or a microphone, allowing it to be plugged into an amplifier or sound system. This type of guitar can be played acoustically or amplified for larger performances. 4. Electric Guitar: Electric guitars use pickups and amplifiers to produce sound. They have a solid body, which can be made of various materials, and steel strings. Electric guitars are a staple in rock, jazz, blues, and many other modern music genres. 5. Gypsy Jazz Guitar: Gypsy jazz guitars are similar in appearance to traditional acoustic guitars but have specific design elements such as a petite bouche ("small mouth") soundhole and a distinctive D-shaped soundhole. These guitars are associated with the gypsy jazz style popularised by Django Reinhardt. Apart from these, there are other specialised types of guitars like resonator guitars, 12-string guitars, and baritone guitars, each designed to produce specific tones and serve particular musical styles.

How long will the guitarist play for?

A typical set lasts between 45 and 60 minutes, with a 15-minute break between each.

How far in advance should I book a guitarist?

We recommend reserving as soon as possible, especially if you have specific musical requests, but at Encore, we manage last-minute reservations all the time and can easily find a guitarist on short notice.
