I like to play guitar

photo by Marc Lamote featuring me (left) and my friend Klaas (right) discussing a guitar composition. We always have many fun playing together. Klaas sings and plays rhythm guitar, I try to create some melody improvisations. It’s our tribute to the sixties when we were young. Now we are old and looking back emotionally. Marc Lamote caught the moment of dialogue very well, I think. Sometimes, when I am a listener I try for myself, to make portraits of musicians, see the 6 photos below.

    Thank you for the flickr-videos! The “Smoke gets in your eyes” gets my tears…


  5. Love the guitar. Marvelous instrument, and so portable. ;)


  6. I am SO with you guys in spirit replaying the music of the 60s on your guitars. Those days are still floating around in the upper atmosphere, you know!


  7. Some magical moments captured here. I like the two guitarists at the top right best!


  8. What a nice smile. I also like play a piano. :)


  9. Wolfgang Hermann

    bu the fun is on the same level

    the happy guitarplayer


  10. ONE OF YOUR BEST SETS, Frizz. You have an artistic mind, artistic eye and an artistic heart. Triple Threat!


  11. I’m glad you do. I’ve had a guitar for many years. I performed once on stage as a teenager, after several months of lessons, but did not keep it up after that.


  12. I’d sure like to be able to play guitar as well!
    Wonderful, Frizz! :)


  13. :-)
    Those were the days my friend
    We thought they’d never end
    We’d sing and dance forever and a day
    late 60′s if I remembered correctly


  14. What a great series of photos! As much as we listen to music, we can also learn a lot by watching the expressions a musician makes when playing!

  16. This is so cool! As a faltering beginner on guitar (and can’t afford lessons), it’s nice that I can sit and try to play along without feeling self-conscious next to someone well practiced! Cheers! Jerri

  19. I loved “Ain’t She Sweet”. Your guitar playing has really progressed well. Wish I could play with my fingers like that.


  20. Reblogged this on euzicasa and commented:
    What a beautiful rendition by Frizztext of “Colours” on his dobro: WOW! check his sound cloud!


  21. George, reblogging me:


    you’re so kind, George. I’m not a professional musician, I only like to play on my guitar as a form of meditation, like adoring the fenomenon of concentration – actually on my goal list for open tuning guitar: bona nox by mozart and the lion sleeps tonight (belafonte etc.)


Hearing from you makes my day!
