Today’s Quote – Paint With Sound

les-paul

Paint pictures with sound. First, find your white—the deepest, roundest sound you can play on the guitar. Then, find your black—which is the most extreme tonal difference from white you can play. Now, just pick the note where you’ve got white, pick it where you’ve got black, and then find all those colors in between.

Get those colors down, and you’ll be able to express almost any emotion on the guitar.

Today’s Quote – It Is Not A Choice

elizabethwurtzel

 I am motivated to write because it is what I am meant to do. It is not a choice — it is what I am. I did not choose writing — it chose me. And I believe it is necessarily that way. Anyone doing this for some other reason should not be.

The world does not care if you write or not, so to be successful you have to be so good that your work is better than all the other available distractions.
