I went searching for quotes, wisdom, truths and quips about what guitar playing is all about! Here are some that I found.
Inevitably, pretty much all these quotes are from books, video, magazine interviews, various websites etc so their 100% accuracy cannot be guaranteed. Yep, it's a shame but true - I haven't actually questioned both Andres Segovia and Waylon Jennings. (Jimmy Page and John Lee Hooker, on the other hand...)
Also, these quotes are, in turn, erudite, off-the-cuff, dismissive, deep-thinking, downright silly and often completely contradictory. Who ever said all guitar players thought the same, anyway?
Some are from players you'll love and listen to. Others from people you ignore or have never even heard of. So what?
To paraphrase what Jimmy Page says later on, everyone's got something to say and everyone's got something valid to say.
Ignore them all over again if you wish, but I trust you'll find at least some of these nuggets of wisdom inspirational.
Here we go...
