Let’s break musicianship down into three basic parts: what you were born with, what you can learn, and what you can dream. Where do you go next?
The Joy of Music
Our main reason for being here is to help other people become musicians. We enjoy sharing what we've learned about music because it's fun. These articles are about the different ways music has touched our lives.
I’m pleased to introduce a new series here at Guitar Noise, spotlighting the many, many musical Meccas in this wonderful world of ours. First stop – Nashville, Tennessee. And if you’re thinking, “That’s only country music,” you’ll soon realize that there’s a whole lot more going on!
Susan Schwartz returns to Guitar Noise with two stories of recent trips – one to the Martin Guitar Factory in Nazareth, Pennsylvania and one to a small town in Maine where there happened to be an open mic night. You never know where you’re going to find a chance to play and enjoy music!
You never know who you’re going to meet in life. And, given the way things are these days, you also never know who you’re not going to meet yet still get to know and appreciate. Joining FODFest the past two years has hammered home, to me at least, the point that every life can make a difference in this world.
We at Guitar Noise want to remind people of why we run this site and, much more importantly, why we play music in the first place.
Music is best when it is shared. Here is what happened when our film crew found itself in a part of the world where music was the only common language.
