A professional guitarist was once asked the question, “Why did you choose the guitar as the musical instrument to master?” His witty answer was, “… because the piano is too heavy to put over my thigh to play!”
A funny ironical joke as that answer may be, it remains a fact that a lot of people choose to play guitar among other musical instruments because of its portability. If is far more handy than the bulky piano and any musician could comfortably carry it in various places for his gigs.
Now you may ask, if portability is the real concern, why not go for the smaller and lighter the violin? The reason for the pervading guitar option is because of its practical use in total song accompaniment.
Violins are always played with other musical accompaniments like that of the piano in public performances. Guitars on the other hand could be played by itself on a classical guitar concert. It could also accompany a song performance by itself such as in acoustic performances.
When it comes to musical instruments, a lot of people opt to play guitar also because of its holistic musicality beyond reasons of portability and practicality. It functions very much like the piano in solo performances or providing accompaniment music which the professional musician could take along anywhere he needs to play his music.
