All Aboard the Guitar Train
Hi, I’m Quirky T, your conductor on the Guitar Train. Get your free ticket ready. Our journey will make many stops before we reach our destination of Advanced Musical Knowledge. Stops along the way will lead us to my top three favorite musicians/bands – The Beatles, Genesis/Phil Collins, and Gloria Estefan. We will make side trips to learn more about Huey Lewis and the News, Jon Secada, and Barry Manilow.
Another stop along the way to Advanced Musical Knowledge will be “Guitar Picks “ which tracks my slow, painful journey in learning to play the guitar.
The Guitar Train will also stop at “Songwriting Sessions” which tracks my attempts at songwriting. It will also look in-depth into the songwriting process and analyze the lyrics of songs.
I’m not the only conductor on the Guitar Train as there will also be guest conductors writing about music. Musicians, as well, will be guest conductors and give us the inside track on music.
Passengers on the Guitar Train are encouraged to send in their song, CD, and musician recommendations. Tell me who I should listen to and why. Passengers can also participate in poll questions and write concert reviews.
All Guitar Train passengers and guest conductors should keep in mind that anything posted on the Guitar Train blog must NOT contain profanity or ethnic, racial, gender, or physical insensitivity. If you don’t like a musician’s music, only make comments on his or her music, not on his or her looks. Anyone who violates this will have to disembark at the next stop on the Guitar Train and will not be allowed back on the train.
So have your free tickets ready for the conductor, Quirky T, and hop aboard the Guitar Train. This train runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week so you don’t have to hurry to catch it and it won’t leave without you. Passengers can get on and off at any stop as we journey to Advanced Musical Knowledge.
All Aboard the Guitar Train!
