Playing a great guitar is like having a conversation with an intelligent, insightful person who’s also a good listener, taking in what you say and perhaps amplifying your thoughts to expand and perhaps lead them in a new direction, adding insights of his or her own. The collaboration leaves you with a deeper understanding of the subject, the person, and perhaps yourself.
Art in general, and music in particular, successfully purveyed, is at its core a transference of feeling. The player wants the listener to feel the depth and emotion of the music and its creator, a seductive dance of the performer, composer, and instrument.
A great guitar doesn’t make you sound better than you are, but helps you reach deeper into your musical soul.
I’m always happy to talk about my work, but it’s most important for you to directly have a conversation with one of my guitars.
