Photo Friday: Get Out Your Guitar

I love offbeat holidays. And yesterday was Get Out Your Guitar Day. Yes, this is a real thing. So the photo for today shows guitars. Well, guitar bodies, anyway. I took this one on the Martin Guitar factory tour in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. Here are a row of guitar bodies waiting to be made into full-fledged guitars. I don’t really play the guitar anymore, but I did as a child. I received one for my birthday and took lessons from my uncle, who was a high-school music teacher. But we moved away a few years later, and we never bothered to find another teacher. My husband is a pretty good guitarist, and we probably have half a dozen guitars of various kinds in the house, including the one I received as a child. Maybe I’ll take lessons again someday.

I hope you had a happy and musical Get Out Your Guitar Day!

The tour of the Martin Guitar factory in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania is fascinating. If you’re ever in the area, go take a look — but not until after the pandemic; tours have been suspended for now. (When that time comes, you should visit the nearby Crayola Experience factory tour, too.)
