This Guitar & the Song it Birthed
I’ve heard him tell the story once or twice. It was the moment he knew that he was meant to play music. He received this guitar (the title of the song) when he was a kid. Rudy, the songwriter, describes the feeling of playing his first guitar and the immediate understanding that this musical instrument, this things that produced sound, had some profound connection to him that he could not particularly understand at the moment, except to say that he was meant to know this thing in some intimate way. I suppose many of us have had that feeling at some point in our lives. How is it that we can have connections to things we don’t know?
How do we find our paths?
