We went to see “It Might Get Loud” last night. It was pretty good, but the titling sequence blew me away. It was just these lovely macro shots of guitars. So this morning I decided to take some shots of my own guitar.
I got this Ibanez when I was in middle school and lived in Denver. I bought it from another student that took lessons from my teacher, Paul. Man, those were good times. Paul was a fantastic teacher who I instantly looked up to. How could I not after he taught me “Dead or Alive” during my very first visit? Ah, youth. I wish I could describe the pride in Paul’s eyes when I asked him to teach me my first Ramones song. It must have been interesting to watch his students’ musical tastes evolve.
