    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.

    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...

    This is a random example

    but firstly let me say I play guitar so I know the inner workings and can appreciate this sound beyond just "that sounds cool!". But... David Gilmours tone on Learning to Fly is just absolutely perfect. It's so fluid. It's so alive! It's just perfect. I mean I can't even really...

    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.

    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...

    What is brilliance? Aaron Dessler 's guitar

    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.

    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'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...

    Growing up, my dad played guitar around us

    sometimes, and he always seemed to love making music. It was fascinating to see him that way, and to learn more about him through it. When I was going through the teenage years, it was Ani Difranco's music among others that really helped the world to make sense, and her guitar...

    Guitar will always be special to me,

    acoustic is so soothing, sweet, or romantic, or can be powerful too depending on the song and how its played. I especially love when guitarists add the percussive sounds, the taps on the strings and shell without missing a note, so amazing to me, adds depth and rhythm and draws...

    There are certain guitarists

    who just leave you speechless when you listen to some of their stuff. Back in the 70s it was Richie Blackmore during his Rainbow era - wild and pure; then it was the completely different sound ofTony Iommi of Black Sabbath - full and deep. More recently it is the utterly...
