Can you clean your six shooter in the dark?
There is beauty in good machine and old leather. Fall in love with the time spent building the link between the wood and wire. The blood, sweat, and tears you put into practice and repetition. The connection you build with your guitar to the point where you can operate it without thinking.
I love the guitar. I love the pure utility of it. A block of wood and metal strings. It's all you need. The rest is up to you.
There’s a saying with guitar players: “the fingers don’t lie.”
"I do the best when I just listen for where I'm trying to go with it and where it can go. If I just go with what's in my heart and let it come out then I'm OK." – Stevie Ray Vaughn
