    Which is an example of faulty coordination? The guitar is used in a lot of contemporary music, and the instrument probably originated in Spain during the 1500s. The first guitars had several strings, but standard modern American guitars have only six strings. The electric guitar is a fairly recent invention, yet it is a key instrument in many contemporary bands. The guitar is featured in rock music, so most rock bands have guitarists.
