Guitar, The Obsession And Memorabilia

Just another humble expression on guitar, the obsession, memorabilia and valuable experiences.

Khir Khalid, Guitar, Myself And Its Obsession,

Last week, I was poking around a buy and sell trade store which is really partly an antique store and partly a second hand stuff store. My eyes got attracted to a guitar because of it's colour. 

A yellowish and dark cherry red with black finished Gibby... wow!.. that is not easy to find in the second hand store. So I tested, strummed the strings and it sounded reasonably in tune. The price was also reasonable with a nylon case included and top of it all, it was 25% off... the rest was a history.

Myself, Guitar And Its Obsession


My love affair with guitars purely begins when I was 15 years old. 

Throughout my teenage years I learned to play guitar and it always makes me inspired. I took guitar lesson, love my guitar and have bought several more to keep it company and practice as much as I can up to 4 hours a day. Life is not perfect but is worth living.

Later in my college years and in my 20's, I learned to join several music jammers to perform in a wedding live band and some part of mini concert performances as well as college and university's events. I was actively searching for music friends to jam with or a band to join in.

I've joined a musical pop culture groups, the grunge, hard rock jammers and even punk rock enthusiasts and got so obsessed with its tune and tempo. That was my musical era with its personal pleasure to play rhythm in a progressive music bands of the 90s.

Guitar, The Obsession And Its Rewarding Experience


As for me, guitar can be a very rewarding experience, and a personal ones at that. It has florished great memories as far as overseas, played gigs, lesson jams as well as creating good friendship.

We played in the rain, the snow, the very cold and a windstorm so severe that speaker columns got blown over. Once, during a night outdoor gig, we were swarmed by so many insects I could hardly see the fred board... but we just keep on jamming.

Well... guitar is the first decent musical instrument I ever owned and has held in its value. The experience and memories worth more than a million bucks. Even I was not popular as professionals musicians nor guitarist, it was a great memoirs in my music life experience.

Guitar is a universal musical instrument... and now, being a husband and father of 4, guitar is just one of the medium for family entertainment and good passtime activity, or perhaps... a great activity whenever I feel of reminiscing the glory of the younger years... cheers!
