Since this is my first post ever here, I decided to post in the music forum bc I listen to a lot of it. What is your favorite instrument to combine with a guitar? Lets hear what you all like when you listen to anything with a guitar in it. :3

Hi there and welcome Shanlarra.
:)
I think you need to be more specific because that would depend greatly on the style of music. Jazz - rock - classical - electric - acoustic - folk - country - ----- flamingo?

Guitars are used everywhere after all.

Just a couple of examples

Maybe guitar with guitar.

These guys are great.

I like my acoustic guitars with fiddles.

I like my electric guitars with drums.

Actually I wasn't really intending to be specific. I myself like a lot of different styles of guitar playing. Especially anything sung by Jerry Reed. :3 He did a really nice cover of "You Don't Mess Around With Jim", originally sung by Jim Croce. But if I had to pick a good one, country paired with a harmonica, like this video here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4s0nzsU1Wg

"You Don't Mess Around With Jim", Now that's a song I haven't heard in a long time. But it's a good answer to the question you asked. Voice and guitar are pretty much the most versicle combination there is and I'd have to say that if I had to pick a favorite that would be it.


For country, I guess I'm still riding the wave of the Johnny Cash revival of a few years ago. Funny, when we were kids we just thought he was funny, guess I had to grow into it.

That is how it usually happens lol. When we're kids, music like that is usually met with a rather confused look, but when we get to our 20s then we end up liking it more for some reason lol. Same with other instruments, like bagpipes. An acquired taste for sure, but only ACDC could combine bagpipes with a guitar and make it sound good. :3

Oh I love bagpipes! But that's a whole 'nother thread.

Acoustic guitar blends with just about anything. Great with fiddle and banjo, anything else acoustic. I'm a real fan of Gaelic music, and I'm remembering one cut by Ossian that combines guitar, fiddle, harp, and whistle. I get goosebumps just thinking about it.

Electric: depends on the style, but (1) organ and (2) sax come to mind. :)

Very nice thread! And Morwenna, I like your bagpipe + guitar idea ;-)))
for me:
acoustic guitar with violine and acoustic bass ;)
(I would love to try that out)

electric: with sax and piano
(we tried out once and it was GREAT! a pity that we did only once .... but may be one day... then plus drums plus bass :) )
