So why should you play guitar?

Well, I can tell you a 100 reasons why it will improve your life, but I think 50 will do. First let’s start with a few reasons why you shouldn’t play any other instrument:

– 1 Have you ever hung around on the beach with your friends around a nice little campfire while you were playing your bass guitar to entertain everyone?…

– 2 Did you ever take a piano with you, carrying it on your bike on the way to your girlfriend to perform a serenade?…

– 3 Did you ever play a drum kit so everyone could sing along?…

My fellow musicians I’m just messing around :-)

Now let me give you some good reasons why you should pick up that guitar and treat it as your holy grail. Here we go!

Guitar playing is a great way to:

– 4 express your creativity.
