The guys at Guitar Life couldn’t imagine life behind much else, and like this guy we’re planning on rocking into the hereafter.
He’s what we call a lifer, probably got into it at an impressionable young age. From then on, there was no hope of rehabilitation. Would have started out on one of those thrift store plywood copies and an old amp so battered he doesn’t need a distortion pedal.
Some buddies decide to use an old garage to thrash out some tunes in and before long they’re regulars at open mic nights, opening shows for travelling acts and maybe even doing it on street corners for spare change.
Next thing you know someone’s got a beat up old van from somewhere and spray painted the name of the band on the side. Off they go to the next town, and the next, playing those songs they wrote in that garage.
Night after night they walk onto different stages, endless gigs on an endless tour. Maybe they find bigger crowds, record deals and all the things that come with music fame, maybe not. But it doesn’t really matter, because this guy found exactly what he wanted a long time ago.
And that plywood copy? Passed on years ago to some kid in a town whose name he can’t remember. And so it starts again.
For anyone who’s ever dreamed of living a life behind guitars, no matter if you’re 15 or 50, start now. Available in small to 3XL for women and up to 5XL for men. Comes in T-shirts, long sleeves and hoodies.
