Acoustic guitar. So fundamental. Six strings, cause and effect, reverberation, harmony, rhythm, melody, feeling, touch, intention. Did I mention feeling? It’s communal. It’s communication.
All these things are not just about the player, they’re about the listener, too. It’s an infinitely rich occurrence. It’s beyond description, and doesn’t need any, but it’s not wrong to try. It’s fun. That’s all we have, players and listeners, this trying. Each note worth the effort.
