Playing guitar saved my life. I know ... the Oscar for best dramatic lead goes to me! But it just may be true. From the early teen days when the bullies just LOVED to pick on me, right up until the horror of WHATEVER the heck has been going on in the world the last couple of crazy years (late 2020 to early 2022). Can you say "stay at home" (all the freaking time)?? I am WAY too industrious and conscientious to sit at home and play video games, so man am I glad I had guitars to play and learn on!
I often pull out my soapbox and spill out waaaaay too much of my mind, so instead of ME telling you how much playing an instrument benefits your brain, let some EXPERTS in neurosciences do the talking! Do this google search: How music helps the brain Let experts from Harvard, Yale, and the like tell ya about the awesome effects of MUSIC. While your at it search how music helps the body!
So folks, if world events, or events in your own little corner of the world have ya a little off-kilter. Just grab a guitar and HEAL!
