You can’t make a garden without having a guitar.
That’s a truth often repeated by guitarists in the community, but it’s something of a contradiction in terms.
Guitarists, especially those who have never played, are often told to simply “break the guitar up” and get back to playing.
Guitar players, however, tend to break guitars up to create space, while the more traditional gardener looks for space in their garden.
In fact, when I began my research into the art of guitar garden, I was surprised to learn that some guitarists have gone to great lengths to create a space where they can play.
Guitarist and guitarist extraordinaire Dan Belson created a garden for himself at his studio, where he placed a guitar in the middle of a wall of plants.
He says the goal of his garden is to give himself a space that allows him to practice, while allowing him to have a few hours of quiet time.
Belson explains that the garden is a way to get away from the pressures of a day job and practice for the weekend.
“I love being outside with my guitar and playing in nature,” he says.
“It’s a really great way to relax and recharge, and it’s an easy way to go on a weekend without the pressures and the pressures I would otherwise have to deal with.”
Belson says his garden was initially created as a way of getting away from his day job.
“The thing I loved about gardening was that it was very, very relaxing,” he tells me.
“When I first started it, I had a lot of responsibilities that I couldn’t leave behind, and I wasn’t getting as much enjoyment out of my work as I was getting out of it.
It’s not just about the music I’m playing.
It also involves the plantings, and the plants I’m using, and all the other things.
The plants are part of the plant that is in the house, the plants that are growing in the garden, and so on.”
Belson says the main purpose of his project is to teach him how to use his guitar to his advantage.
“Being a guitar player, the thing that I like about it is that it is so easy to play, and there’s not a lot that I have to worry about,” he explains.
“As soon as I start to learn a new technique, I can just sit down and play and see if I can improve on it.
Guitar players have a lot to learn, but Belson’s garden is teaching them the hard way.”
My guitar is a beautiful instrument, and if I play it well, it can be very rewarding, but if I don’t play it very well, I won’t be able to get as much out of the instrument.”
