Well, I’ve been playing the guitar quite heavily for 7-8 years now, and used to consider myself as being pretty good. Have played various of guitars and styles over the years and been in a number of bands, playing gigs all over the North of England. Then, last night, I went to see John Williams in concert. For the uninitiated, this is the man, nay, God, that composed and performed Cavatina – The theme from ‘The Deer Hunter’. The speed of this man on the guitar, the clarity, tone and volume he got out of it was amazing. The other gentleman performing with him was one of the most amazing muscians I had come across – this guy must have played 25-30 different instruments across the evening, from woodwind to strings to panpipes! Quite simply, the pair were amazing and I’m having to re-evaluate what I do as playing that guitar or simply making a noise!
Hanging my head in shame
