All Over The Road
Slowly but surely I am creating my web presence. I imagine it will take a lot of discipline to keep any blog up to date. And it probably takes a big ego to think that you have a something interesting to say every day. Well, let's hope I can find enough to keep talking - although talking to oneself is talent worth developing.

The Story of the Guitar

Legend  1. Headstock; 2. nut; 3. machine heads...Image via Wikipedia

The BBC has produced a fantastic documentary. Obviously, my favourite sections deal with Pete Townshend . Here Pete explains what the attraction of the electric guitar was to the bands of the 60s. How The Who found their sound, and how art school influenced what it meant to Pete: much more than just an instrument to play on.

The man who made his name smashing guitars on stage here argues for the guitar as an instrument of the salon. Pete Townshend sings the praises of the guitar as the most personal, intimate and companionable of instruments.
