|Subject:||mastering the guitar|
|From:||Jeff Ridings (Greenville, S.C.)|
hi, pat I'm a 15 year old guitarist, i've been playing for about four years, but there is one thing I've always wanted to know.
I don't mean to brag but I always get complements from other guitar players my age(BTW these are mostly jazz guys) about my phrasing and technique and all that stuff but one thing that truly amazes me is when I hear and see guys like you, stevie ray, Pat martino...etc. It seem like your guitar is just an extension of your own body, like you have complete control over your guitar and it'll say whatever you want it to. I feel thats missing in my playing, not just passion but just being able to have a relationship with the guitar(or any other instrument) like a long lost brother or something. It really hard to try to explain in words. I know and continue to learn alot of theory but that doesn't seem to be the key!! i guess it sort of a spiritual thing?? Mind giving me a little insight??
