"I want to play the guitar."
Translation:Je veux jouer de la guitare.
When talking about playing a musical instrument in french is it always necessary to add 'de'? Would it be wrong or unusual to say ' Je veux jouer la guitare.'?
Thank you, i was wondering about it since in all the other latin based languages i'm aware of don't use this construction (spanish: 'Yo quiero tocar la guitarra' and italian 'Voglio suonare la chitarra').
