It's incredibly sad watching us. Watching our horse tradings, governments and official institutions white and green washing..
I mentioned these merely to show a counter example of Bard's claim that all waves experience diffraction.The pictures do not show waves.
It does on a guitar, because the ends are fixed. You might somehow induce a travelling or compression wave with a magnetic excitation of a steel string but the resulting frequency (MHz) will be far too high to contribute to the "wide rich sound...."I'd like to see the maths on that. Take the average guitar string as having a length of 1 metre and the speed of sound in steel to be 5km/sec
