Life Behind Guitars
Give me guitars or give me death!
OK so maybe the guys at Guitar Life can be a bit intense, but 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 chewed up it 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.
Off they go to the next town, and the next, playing those songs they wrote in that garage. 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.
Night after night they walk onto different stages, countless gigs on an endless tour. Who knows, maybe they find chocolate swimming pools, bacon swimwear, furry walls and all the other 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 sizes small to 3XL in T-shirts, long sleeves and hoodies.
