I’ve been taking guitar lessons since January and I’ll be honest: I’m not very good. But I have to admit it’s a lot of fun. I never really had a musical background save taking clarinet lessons for one year as a child, so I don’t know that much about music.
My guitar teacher last night could not stop talking about how significant and monumental a figure Les Paul was. The way he talked, the world would be a completely different place if Les Paul never was. I took a look at this New York Times article, and sure enough this man was a total genius. It’s a good read.
