We all enter this world complete, with a brain... The Processor and Operating System, and also with a Natural Heritage of Our Culture of Origin... The Programming for that system. From the beginning everything is in place all ready to be used. All we have do is unpack the box and start using the equipment inside, that is... inside us. With this, let it be said... as with any equipment, we have to not be in the box itself, but just like using a new computer... outside looking in. Letting any piece of equipment to remain in the box makes it unusable... and nothing changes... things do not grow... and we access nothing from the wealth of information and applications that we have available. Things remain at status quo... still, un-moving, in a state close to that of death itself, No Movement, the basic indicator of the non-existence of life, as that of a piece of stone.
We were not born to be a solidified mass of nothingness, with no objectives or purpose in this thing we call life. We were all put on this planet to be part of the planet's own life energy field; and interact with all things around us in creative ways which allow for survival. We are to be using Our Natural Bio-Computer, The Brain, to help the world and all that is a part of who we are keep moving forward in the endless Procession Of Creativity Unfolding for the betterment of the whole including all mankind.
This is our reason for "being"... that's why we are Human "Beings". As I have previously said "We Are The Creators... We Are Man". However, are we really alive... acting in the responsible way that we were put here for, or are we just standing there "still"... not much different than that image of death itself... caught in the Death Trap of non-purpose without any direction. Trapped in the conformity of those who are our jail keepers, our slave masters?
The answer is NO. We ascribe to and follow these almost dead "call them zombies... perhaps" beings that make us believe this is the way it is to be. But, we are not actually enslaved or trapped, we hold the keys to our imprisonment... all we must do is unlock the cell of illusion that others have made us believe that this is all there is. Once again, "We Are The Creators... We Are Man": And we have all the equipment and natural resources within us to free ourselves from the "Daymaire" of waking life and move into the World Of Our Own Reality... and Live Our Dreams. Life is not that, that we are being told it is... Life Is Freedom and Continuous Movement. We must create the world we want to live in and the life we want to be ours.
Life is like a river, or a natural spring... it is meant to be flowing... not dammed up, or diverted in it's course. And, as we so often seen... water so diverted or blocked frequently causes devastating changes to an environment, turning what was once a green pasture into a desert, making life no longer the same, or maybe even totally non-existent, or Dead.

This Is Guitar
The guitar is essentially the origin of almost all musical instruments on the planet. The instrument, from a known historic perspective, was conceived and born roughly 9,000 years ago in the Mesopotamian River Valley... the often called Cradle Of Civilization. However in actually, as with everything else man has created... the prehistoric date is much older than that. While there are clay reliefs, stone carvings and paintings depicting the guitar, and it's ancestors as far back as approximately 9,000 years, There is evidence in it's basic construction and especially in it's tuning that point to it's beginnings tens of thousands of years ago... "This Is Guitar".

Playing Music is all about "How You Hear The Sound"
Heraing the music in your head... and coming from your instrument as you play. The essence of music is being able to play as easily and as naturally as breathing in and out, as simply as speaking. This is true with all music performance, on all instruments... and of course in this case "The Guitar". It's all about The Inspiration (the breathing in) and Applying The Skills one has learned (the breathing out)... and not about trying to copy the exact sound of someone else's performance, or always reading music just as it appears on paper or elsewhere, in one form or another... as for example on some website in today's world. It is also Not About Memorizing Songs, but about "Just Being Aware of The Sound"... and following where it leads you. Letting the music guide you from within and discovering the creative world that is yours to explore... and experience who you are as a player.
Sound is like a magnet, or like the force of gravity itself. We hear and experience the sound of music like a compelling invisible road map, with various directions in which we can travel. The notes and harmonies in all music can have multiple agendas that lead us "according to the way we perceive them", and this perception differs in each individual as well as also may differ each time within ourselves. It offers to the listener, and especially those who play an instrument, new journeys to take and discoveries to make as it takes us on a magical tour through the landscape of sound. Music offers us choices of routes one can travel through this Landscape of Sound, alternatives to travel like a road map or a GPS device. As we listen we are presented with an endless "Soundscape of Creativity" leading the listener/player to uncover and new environments in sound that are within us alone, and can only be revealed if one is brave enough to travel that uncharted path music takes us on. Incidentally, music with lyrics restricts much of this imagination and creativity... conforming one to an idea expressed in the words not allowing the mind to explore as much of The New Territory hidden within ourselves.
