The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Week

I heard this and wondered about songs, lyrics, harmony and the sheer force of music and what it can invoke in people. I was around ten years old but already had the music in me. My Mum was in a record club and used to buy all sorts of records for her and childrens ones for me and my sister. She played piano but I couldn’t get the hang of playing piano but guitar….I was away.

Have a listen and what do you think?

I don’t have my first guitar any more but the black semi-acoustic the first guitar I bought with my own money is still as good as the day I bought it. It is a Japanese copy of a jazz guitar, perhaps a Maton, by Splendor. I have never been able to find any information about Splendor Guitars and I have looked eight days a week!

    BRAVO!!! Delighted to see you found your musical niche! 👏 👍🏼

    Being a classical opera-type, there are lots of things in your genre I don’t understand, and perhaps you’ve the same thoughts about Puccini, Mozart, and the rest of “the boys in the band.” 😉

    Nevertheless, I did a quick search for your guitar and below is what came up. Hope you can start some good conversations.

    Ciao, bello!

    P.S./ On the other hand, it might be the more-than-3 urls driving the system nuts. In that event, check “reverb dot com” for 2 listings.
    And “jedistar dot com” for 2.
    There’s a youtube dot com here (/watch?v=UblBMpwGULs).
    (Be sure you fill in the appropriate blanks in all cases!)

    And this one:

  2. This oldie digs the oldies; thanks. Don’t know about Splendors, but I went to high school (just over half a century ago!) with the son of the guy who was chief exec at Ovation Guitars. I’m a drum / flute sort of guy, so i was never all that impressed but, man, they had a SOUND!
    Thanks for the memory.

    1. Thanks Ron 🙂 yes a sound indeed. More of a Stones man myself. I’ll have to dig out a bit of Jethro Tull for one of the challenges or a song with a huge drum solo.
      The Lone ranger and Tonto were riding along when the heard the Indian drums. They slowed to a walk, looking very wary at the sound of the drums. All of a sudden the drums stopped. Tonto said “Kimosabi” in a dire voice, “You know what happens when the drums stop?” “No” said the Lone Ranger a bit fearful. Tonto said in a dismal voice “Bass solo!!!” 😀 😀
