G: Guitars

Happy Monday and welcome to the second week of the challenge! I'm still trying to get ahead, but in the mean time I suppose I should just be happy that I'm keeping up.

My older son has been taking guitar lessons at a local music store for a few years now. I love hearing him play, and for some reason, I also enjoy seeing a bunch of guitars hanging out on a wall together.

As an added bonus, I accidentally discovered yesterday that April is International Guitar Month.

My house has is home to many guitars, most of which are hanging on the wall. Comes with having a husband in a band.
As nice as they are to look at, I leave the dusting of said guitars to him. :)

Who decides it's national guitar month? I reckon it's a marketing ploy! Both my sons play guitars though - self-taught - and one son bought HIS son a real guitar when he was only two.

Lovely guitars -- wish I knew how to play. Since my area is movies, I am remembering how the classic guitar shop down the street from me, McCabe's, has a family connection with Fay Wray of King Kong Fame.

Thanks for visiting me at www.beverlyinmovieland, during the
A to Z Challenge!

Playing a guitar eludes me, so I enjoy it all the more!

Love the guitar pics!

I saved up forever to buy my gorgeous Seagull acoustic guitar. I finally brought it home two years ago. I still haven't had time to take lessons, and I can't play at all,—but it's *so* pretty. :)

I love hearing music played around the house and have a few guitarists among my musician children. We recently went to the science museum in Richmond, Virginia where they have a guitar history display on exhibit. Guitar month - I guess there's a month for everything nowadays. Haha.

Those guitar displays look great. My friend's daughter is learning to play at the moment and is guitar mad, she would be in seventh heaven in that shop.
