I believe that the guitar is one of the most beautiful creations – it resonates in my soul with a musical as well as visual aesthetic.
I love guitar music, whether it is the subtle and soft tones of a new age artist or the raunchy and loud chords from a grunge or hard rock musician.
My favorite guitarist, however, and perhaps my favorite musician of all time, is William Ackerman. His “Bricklayer’s Beautiful Daughter” is the most beautiful piece of music I have ever heard.
Sadly, my love of the guitar has not translated into any talent for the instrument. I tried. I only learned from my attempts at guitar lessons to appreciate those who have a true gift for the instrument. My gifts lie elsewhere.
