A six-stringed instrument used largely in rock, jazzand blues music. In some styles it is a backup instrument and in some it is a lead instrument. Many people play guitar. Word may also refer to electric bass, in a casual sense

I don't think you need to know musical theory to play guitar. I play bass and I know my notes for the most part, but I can't read music other than tablature. This does not mean I am bad at the instrument, I can play well and sometimes even by ear. I am still learning and would by no means consider myself amazing.

People who play guitar and shred have great skill, but people who play power chords in bands also have skill in that they can play guitar while jumping around and rocking out, and sometimes singing. People who shred are often just sitting down. in live music, performing may be just as important as skill.

By no means is someone who just sits there and strums on distortion and everybody likes them good at guitar. I was at a party and this guy just hooked a guitar up to an amp, put it in distortion and just strummed without even touching the frets. Everyone loved it. Mind, it was in grade three or four.
I suck at guitar, but I can play bass!
