A hollow body

Debbies One Word Sunday: Body

Just because it’s is one of the best and most relaxing guitar tunes ever. Thanks Peter Green and Jeremy Spencer and the rest of Fleetwood Mac for just travelling along. Mick Fleetwoods drumming is just so good. Close your eyes and drift along. For those “over there” here is your morning meditation….don’t forget to fly with the music.

All of my guitars have hollow bodies.

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!

I have a few

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Guitar

The Yamaha on the left is the acoustic guitar I bought when a slightly out of it girl fell over and onto my guitar at the time snapping the neck and sort of crushing the body, the guitar not her.

The Epiphone is the last guitar I bought from my best mate. His wife told him if he buys a guitar he has to sell one. Lucky me as he gave me his old amp as well.190910_blog_challenge_guitars_electric_epiphone
This is the first guitar I bought with the money I saved when I was around 16. It cost $115.00 It is a copy of a Maton Jazzman made in Japan. I cannot find any information about my Splendor guitar.190910_blog_challenge_guitars_electric_splendor

The Daily Post word prompt: Fret

And the band played on,
a tune they loved.
Concentration
They finished the chorus,
into the second verse.
Relaxed
Looking at each other
as they became as one
Smiles
The music flowed
from their hearts
Together
And the band played on

Music

The theme for Franks Tuesday Photo Challenge is Music

What a difficult challenge as I have had music in my life ever since I was born. There was always music playing in the house, whether it was vinyl records or my Mother playing piano. This has been the source of my inspiration as I have been playing guitar since I was about 12 or 13 I think with my best mate Greg, since passed. All through school with the mates in the music class, Steven and Martin playing when we could. Yep Rock ‘n’ Roll of course!! Then with my best mate Michael we would play all the time. Nowadays I just pick up one of guitars and as I live in the bush, can turn it up and belt out a tune or two, mainly Rolling Stones songs.

Here is my first electric guitar and the last one I bought.

The person I have had in my life since I was four, David, an artist, drew this poster for me when we were still in school. I found it a few years ago, had it framed and it now sits on my loungeroom wall with pride.

I took these photos a few moments ago but have a wealth of music to choose from. I have almost nine hundred CD’s and hundreds of vinyl records plus music book and magazines so I had to limit myself as you can well understand.

Rock on
