My Guitar, My Friend

    One of my interests is music and I play an acoustic guitar.

    I wrote a poem about my guitar and thought I'd share it with you. My poem doesn't match up to some of Compound Complex's work however, I'd really appreciate any feedback you can give.

    My Guitar My friend

    Reaching for my old companion

    Alone in the corner on its stand

    Sunlight mirrored off the scratch plate

    It’s a great accompaniment for any band

    Fingers fret the strings with ease

    Bringing life to the melody in my head

    Music drifting through the air

    On its journey with nothing unsaid

    Folk, Rock, Rhythm and Blues

    Matters not which genre I play

    Picking softly or strumming aloud

    The response is immediate, no delay

    Crafted from the finest timber

    Could it be a thoroughbred?

    It’s good to call this wooden marvel

    My guitar, My friend

    It's good, Tallon.

    Had to hold back the tears. What brand of Acoustic guitar do you have?

  • Tallon

    Hi Quarterback; thanks for commenting.

    My guitar is a Tanglewood TW1000 Heritage.

  • Quarterback

    That is a great brand, Tallon. I play a Norman. Tom Petty, and Bob Dylan play Norman guitars. I'm lost in the Oldies, but I love some of the Blues

  • Quarterback

    I would of thought that we would have had more guitar enthusiasts on here.

    Oh yeah..... My kind of topic

    I'm no Tommy Emmanuel but for me.... NO guitar .... NO life

    Had a few guitars over the years but just recently got an Epiphone AJ-220SCE/N

    It's not one of the top of the range models but it really sounds good

    Even with light gauge strings on it, it plays nicely and has good volume and great tone

    At least for me. I have never played any really expensive guitars so I can't compare but

    this does the job for me.

    Now gotta play.........

  • Quarterback

    Epiphones are great. I have played so many good ones too. You don't have to spend alot of money to enjoy playing

    I echo Quarterback's query; Where are all the guitar enthusiasts? I'll go one further; Where are all the other musicians?
