One of my bucket list to-dos was to learn how to play the guitar. Not really for anyone else other than myself. I wanted to be able to sit down and play and sing a song that touched me in some way. I don’t know what drew me to this instrument, but I have always thought the guitar was a beautiful piece of art. So, at the age of 54, after being teased a little by my husband about owning three guitars and never learning to play one, I signed up for lessons.
I told myself that I needed to be okay with being really bad at first which is hard for a perfectionist and I made a promise to myself before my first lesson that I would not quit. Here I am one year later and I can play and sing songs. Playing guitar is like design, there is no limit to what you can learn, you can keep evolving and that’s what I am doing, evolving with my guitar.
Every time I walk into the music store where I take a weekly lesson, I can’t help but walk around and around the store to marvel at all of the beautiful guitars. I can’t wait until I am ready to add to my collection.
This is a prime example of a guitar being a piece of art. Paul Reed Smith Guitars is a guitar manufacturer known for designing and manufacturing high-end electric guitars.
Greg Opatik is the creative behind this guitar masterpiece. A design major who has been designing and creating modern furniture for Genesis Seating for over 15 years. Playing the guitar since a child he started Sinuous guitars which specialize in unique guitar designs, not just tweaking classic guitars but making them his own design.
I have really been intrigued by the metal and wood guitars and I asked my friends at the music store about them. I was told that they have a more twangy sound to them.
Every guitar player should have their own studio so here is mine. Having DIVA join me as my audience is a special bonus!
