International Guitar Month: Day 2

fb_headThe is great versatility in a guitar. I like being able to pick up an acoustic guitar, that has a rich tone, and play an elegant finger picking pattern that will sound great while accompanying a vocal soloist.  Then I like being able to pick up a solid body electric guitar and let it rip with a famous guitar lick. They are both guitars but the sounds the come from each of them is so different.

If you are a guitar play then you know what I mean when I say that when you find the right guitar it feels right when you hold it and it sounds right when you play it. I will quickly put down a guitar that doesn’t have the right feel and sound for me. I won’t waste my time on it.
