I came across this image a few days ago and I keep going back to it because it speaks to me about our own unique and individual love of music.
Everyone has a favorite song or artist – you know…the one when it comes on the radio you have a hard time sitting still or not singing along… because it moves you?
We all gather here because we all love to play the guitar. We play blues, rock, jazz, country, metal, acoustic, electric and bass. We are all uniquely different but share a common passion for our instruments.
I always start tapping (read:stomping) my feet when I hear Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe Bonamassa or Eric Clapton play and go looking for a guitar whenever I hear those classic blues rock licks. And I can’t sit still when tempo gets above 115bpm…!
The trap we fall in is when we choose not to hear a certain genre of music because it is not “our genre”.
Writing this blog has opened my eyes to so many new artists and so many musical styles I may once have shut my ears to. Not any more. I want it all. Bring it on!
How about you? What guitar styles move you?
