Having fitted the machine heads, we are now ready to fit strings to the guitar�and gut and silk-covered, or nylon and nylon-covered, strings should only be used on the
Spanish guitar. Never fit plain wire or wire-covered strings!
How the strings are fitted to bridge and machine head is shown in Fig. 36.

Whether you study the guitar as a solo instrument or as an accompaniment to the voice, it is wise to produce the best results of which the instrument is capable. The guitar is probably the most satisfying musical instrument ever conceived by man�it responds perfectly to the player's mood, being pensive or cheerful at will�and, as such, is worthy of serious study. Printed literature (tutors, books of studies, solos, duets, etc.) abound and no student of the instrument need ever be short of worthwhile music to play�no matter what degree of ability he has reached. The Clifford Essex Co. will be pleased to send you a folder of leaflets relating to the Spanish Guitar in which will be found details of tutors, albums, solos and accessories. It is free on request.
