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!
The Joy of Music
Guitar Noise’s main reason for being here is to help others become musicians and because it’s fun. We enjoy sharing what we have learned about music. On this page you'll find articles on the different ways music has touched people's lives.
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!

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.

There may be many different features of music that people relate to. But emotion is the one common thing that is not tied to interpretation or preference.
