I have always been impressed by people who play the guitar well.
The guitar is afterall a simple musical instrument which can be carried around easily. It has really been an instrument which has been "instrumental" in getting many of my girl friends to fall in love with the musicians!!
Perhaps it is the age old part of our culture - the guitar playing guy gets the girl...A good friend of mine recently told me that it is true in her case . In fact I have many other testimonies. So guys out there if you haven't found a girl friend yet...pick up guitar playhing...
However today I am bringing your attention to a fairly higher end of guitars which may cost up to Bru$6000!! "Using only the finest woods, and hand-forming each to precise tolerances, Manuel Rodriguez developed distinctive guitars fit for the world’s preeminent artists. Each instrument is as unique and individual as the musician who plays it."
Manuel Rodrigues is a company that makes really good Spanish guitars. But the most interesting and iconic sign on the guitar is not the wood (which you cannot really t ell) but the design on it. The hole in the guitar is always decorated by Spanish embroidery design. What can be more Spanish than their embroidery?
This is such a great tribute to women's hardwork and traditions....I wonder how many men would design or invent an instrument and put their mother's or wife's embroidery design on it.
Manuel Rodriguez has paid the greatest tribute to his wife in his life long endeavour of making good guitars. What a great mind! What love !!
Visit a shop selling MR guitars and look at the needlework patterns on them.....Cheers. Ole!
