Let’s talk about Yamaha and call it a lesson, shall we?

I just recently wrote about a magical guitar and that was actually based on a few comments I’d had in reply, an email, and a private message. One thing led to another and you ended up with that article.

It’s what I do!

Anyhow, I have decided to write some more about that guitar company – but with a bit of history.

The ‘net is right full of sites that will give you free lessons with which to learn to play guitar. There’s even whole forums dedicated to mastering classical guitar. There’s speed metal, neo-classical metal, folk, hard rock, classic rock, and progressive rock forums – all dedicated to teaching you how to play guitar.

They do a pretty good job teaching and, frankly, you all seem to enjoy this sort of stuff more. Having had careers that meant performing, I’m acclimated to giving people what they want. It’s in my blood. It makes me happy to see your comments and to see the number of times y’all read these silly things.

So, surely I’ll continue to write and call them lessons – even if they don’t seem like things you need to know if you want to play Smoke On The Water.

Let’s get this party started! Continue reading “Let’s talk about Yamaha and call it a lesson, shall we?”

Note: I wrote this last night and didn’t think it was worth publishing. I still don’t, but I’m gonna put it out there anyhow. If you’re looking for words of wisdom, there are none. It’s sorta, mostly, kinda me bitching about the job.

I’m still not actually sure why I write these, or for whom they’re written. Still, they seem to interest folks and that’s what I’d like to do. I’d like to interest you in learning more about music, learning to play, and improving your level of ability.

Thus, I reveal my secret ulterior motives and my affiliation with the shadowy Classical Guitar Cabal! (We have invaded all the things, all of them!)

And, this will continue along those lines. I shall entice you with the allure of stagecraft and inspire you to pursue the art of musicianship!

Or not…

See, that’s what this whole thing is about. It’s about letting you see the other side. Continue reading “Things look very different from the stage, part 4.”
