Every time I read a prompt I feel I can’t write a thing about this. But, at the end of it, I have enjoyed writing it. The guitar is one instrument I have a special relation with. The moment the strings strum it adds pep, melody and balance into your mind and life. It is a rare combination of feeling energetic and yet you feel so much at control of your emotions. Guitar is music personified.
Both the acoustic and the electric guitar have their strong points. On one extreme is Eric Clapton whose unplugged versions I love a lot and on the other extreme is Marty Friedman whose strumming can get you out of all the gloom. He is a self taught guitarist…truly amazing Marty..Also Jeo Sat is magical
