|I am one of those guitar learners, who never
wanted to be fast or a technical freak. I don’t
know why, but fast players never caught my ears
and the technical freaks were just limited in
audio and video lessons. My perception to this
maybe criticized but I am ready for any kind of
criticism at this particular discussion.|
amateur player, I have always wanted to go
beyond the basic chords. And some time I have
even wanted to come back to a single note which
when combined together makes a chord. And we all
know we can judge a player by a single note. I
have always been fascinated with this single
note. The one is note defining every single
meaning to life. A note which definitely has a
sound to it, but it also has happiness and
sorrow. The one note with different feelings,
moods but yet its serenity.
Many artists have poured out their happiness
and love. And some have poured out pain and
protests through their songs and playing. What
is the difference then? It’s all about feelings.
A note here can change an entire life. It can
change perceptions and can influence
generations. It can shatter the strongest of
nerves and it can link back too opposite poles.
This is one thing I really admire about the
masters of the blues. They concentrate on a
single note, getting the best feel out of it.
That’s why I personally never want to title them
as players. They are the masters and every
generation is going to see them as masters. If
some one says “I listen to the blues” I can
assure he doesn’t really know what blues is or
he doesn’t listen to it. Personally I always say
“I feel the blues”. And I am very proud that I
truly feel it.
