I thank you, Franco, for letting me understand what’s the right approach to the guitar. I do not like those who make fun of you or use euphemisms because they are afraid to say things as they are. The choice I have before me is now simple and, as I am, it has no half measures. Or I let it go, obliging myself to do some simple strumming, or, with patience, I start all over again.
A speech that is not just about the guitar, it is also a choice of life. The music done well absorbs time and energy and at my age to start from scratch it takes courage and unconsciousness together. Also, we must know how to love even the small results because, always for reasons of age, the big ones become unattainable.
Only that, perhaps I understand it just now, writing, the option to give up becomes impossible, not after seeing what the music does in people. Undoubtedly people already predisposed and with remarkable human characteristics. But it was nice to see how my workshop colleagues managed to find balance and happiness in music.
Why do I want to play? For this, to feel good. There is no other reason.
A special thanks to Raffaella. You have surrounded us with care and attention. Among other things, we ate very well. Thanks also for the advice on the voice, I will need a lot.
