Shouldn't I put "the" between "play" and "guitar"? Like, "play the guitar."
No, it is not necessary to put "the" between those two words. Using "the" is considered an article in English that describes the noun. It functions as both an adjective and an adverb. However, one does not need to put "the" before the noun because the noun can stand on its own. Rapunzel will still be understood if she used "the" between those two words or not.
