    A Hidden Master Of Guitar

    I have always said, to myself of course, that Prince or who ever he is now is a pure master of the guitar and I say this without taking away anything from any of the greats..... Prince has an air about him, a style uniquely his own and he makes it look so elegant and easy it is...

    A bluesy guitar is fabulous,

    so is a reggae guitar. But I like a rock guitar, playing a riff I can identify with in my bones. The lyrics to the sound must resonate too.

    I'm listening to Jeff Buckley because,

    well, why not? I didn't listen to him growing up and neither did anyone around me. I've wanted to listen to something with a bit of disdain in its melody and alternative music gives me that. And all of the youtube signs have been pointing to him. Some of my fave songs from...

    While My Guitar Gently Weeps

    I adore the sound of guitar. The soundtrack of my life is composed of guitar-driven rock/pop. There's something very moving, beautiful, and timeless about the sound of a guitar.

    I don't play the guitar.

    I tried lessons once upon a time. It didn't stick. I Wish it had! My hands were just not coordinated enough. I love the sound a guitar makes. I love a guy that can play and sing.

    I think I am more excited about this than she is...  although I haven't let on yet.I grew up in a guitar playing household.  Mom & Dad would have friends over and I'd listen to them play and sing while I was up in bed trying to sleep.   We'd go away on vacation and I loved to...

    I love the guitar. My cousin gave me one last

    Christmas, but two of the strings are messed up and I never got a chance to fix them. Once I get the strings replaced I would really love to learn how to play.

    I just put a 12 string on layaway.

    I got month to wait but I just love how it make simple cords sound beautiful. It's almost like a Mandocello, but with 2 more strings it's more toward the guitar side than the mandolin. Maybe I'll start learning more conventional music.

    Motivation

    I saw electric guitar covers of old rock songs. I loved the sound soooo much. And I can't deny that an acoustic has its own special magic. There's a great sense of joy playing with a guitars strings and making sounds. I want to learn more. It's another struggle, but well worth it...
