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?
Hi Quarterback; thanks for commenting.
My guitar is a Tanglewood TW1000 Heritage.
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
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.........
Epiphones are great. I have played so many good ones too. You don't have to spend alot of money to enjoy playing
I would of thought that we would have had more guitar enthusiasts on here.- Quarterback
I echo Quarterback's query; Where are all the guitar enthusiasts? I'll go one further; Where are all the other musicians?
Talloni' I will share your poem with my Tuesday Guitar group (30) . How about chords
to go with your poem. We have a talent show coming up in the month of October (Senior center),
it is a nice poem "My Guitar My friend", good job.
