This compilation contains music created by guitaret fans.

A guitaret is a small handheld electric instrument, a lamellophone that sounds similar to an electric kalimba. It was invented by Ernst Zacharias (who also invented the pianet and the famous clavinet) and built by the German instrument company Hohner in 1963.
