I just spent about an hour noodling on one of my electric guitars, an act that, in my estimation, is one of life's greatest pleasures. Since I was 13, the experience of plugging a guitar into an amplifier and launching off into a musical fourth dimension has been nothing short of miraculous.
Playing guitar, or any instrument for that matter, transports you to a special place where reality and dreams mix, where the mathematical fundamentals of music morph into pure emotion and adrenaline, and where you instantly make a connection to the divine. I think of it as church for Guitar Dad.
And did I mention that it's just plain fun? Here's to all you loud guitar players out there, some of you occasionally unnerving your families and neighbors, but all of you surely enriching your lives forever. Crank it up, I say!
Below is a super-brief (and low-fi) video of Guitar Dad in the zone.
