You have to be a guitar player to understand that you can never have too many guitars and that your collection must include a little ‘f-hole’ acoustic for it to be a collection.
My new little man (pictured) – a Hall-Mark – arrived today and the first thing I did was remove the old tuning pegs which were bent, rusty and had a few cogs missing. I bought the guitar on eBay for £49 ($78US) and can’t wait to fit new pegs and new strings.
Sometimes my job involves supporting children’s crèches and ‘language-and-play’ sessions at which I often do sing songs with the children. One of the reasons guitar players have lots of guitars is that they all do a different job; my recently repaired Takamine for example would be my first choice for an Irish night down the pub. No doubt at all what job my new little man will be doing. Bring on the little people.
