“One day you pick up the guitar and you feel like a great master, and the next day you feel like a fool.
It’s because we’re different every day,
but guitar is always the same…beautiful”
by Tommy Emmanuel
I play the guitar because I like it, not because I’m bad it. There’s no perfect music, but there is good music.
None of us wanted to be the bass player. In our minds he was the fat guy who always played at the back.
by Paul McCartney
“When you play, never mind who listening to you.”
by Robert Schumann
Your best teacher is your ear, so listen and listen, you will find the music you love.
"If you take a violin, you can make it sound 50 different ways. Not just pizzicato and played by the bow, but ponticello, and harmonics, and tremolos. If you take an oboe and play it, there`s about one way you can make it sound: like an oboe."
by John Corigliano
“Works of arts make rules;
rules do not make works of arts”
by Claude Debussy
