There seems to be a common opinion that pianos are better, musically speaking, than guitars. Here's my counter to that, through examples:

Moonlight Sonata, played on a bass guitar: https://www.youtube.com...

Echoes by David Gilmour - guitar solo: https://www.youtube.com...

Echoes by David Gilmour - ending, feedback between hammond organ (Richard Wright) and guitar (David Gilmour): https://www.youtube.com...

Slide guitar - https://www.youtube.com...

The point being: the variety of tones and ways of playing of a guitar make it a unique instrument that is not inferior to a piano in its beauty - and I stress the third link for that: when the organist and guitarist respond to each other in their playing at the end of the song.
I'll see you on the Dark Side of the Moon.

So much has gone, and little is new.

Try unplugging your guitar and putting it back in its case.
A piano has more depth, range and sheer virtuosity than any guitar.
A violin comes a very close second to a piano and in depth can surpass it.
