Hi shlomi,

Let us take an example of a post about 'Signature Musicals Black Acoustic Guitar'. If your site was based on musical instrument reviews, this post would come under the category of 'Guitar', but with tags, we can get more specific such as 'Signature musical', 'black', 'acoustic' etc. I believe you should categorize each of your post with only one category, whereas you can provide multiple tags for that post.

I hope this helps :)
