Does the solo that Antonio Banderas is shown playing in 'Desperado' leave you crazy and gasping for air? Or have you ever tried to play the guitar and could not continue for certain unavoidable circumstances and since then whenever you hear either a soothing or rocking note, you feel like joining guitar classes again?
If you play the guitar or have a thing for this majestic instrument, there is no way that you haven't heard about the magical and charismatic Spanish guitars. They have their own space and aura and no one can mess around with it when you pluck the right strings! They are all around the world music community, but what about picking up this Spanish beauty in its own den?
Don the guitarist's attitude and unleash yourself on a guitar trail in the southeastern city of Granada in Spain. The whole setting would take an eerie turn the moment you hold a hand crafted classical or a flamenco guitar with the raw smell of the wood still fresh on its body, neck, frets and everywhere. Imagine a five generation tradition that has been dedicated to create these wonderful guitars. It won't be anything less than a pilgrimage for you to step in the workshops of guitar-makers such as Francisco Manuel Díaz, Antonio Marin, Antonio Raya, Jose Marin, and José Luis Bellido. The holy souls of people like Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Bob Marley would whisper in your ear and lead to an insanely wonderful land of chords, tabs, notations and strumming...
No need to carry along your amplifier or distortion peddle, just a good pick will do. Join any of the local groups and have a jam session with them! Rocking was never better than this!
