Acoustic Guitar 1

git2

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.

About Ted Ringer

I am a writer, artist, and listener. Great music is everywhere and has no limits. Some of it is well-orchestrated and some is short and sweet. It can spring out of a moment of deep feeling or result from long periods of development. Music is communication, inspiration, and a million other things. This blog wants to share the wealth and keep toes tapping.
