“You are going to make every moment count. I mean, you better make every moment count. Live your life now; start in the morning. You mustn’t sit around waiting to die. When it happens you should come into the cemetery on a motorbike, skid to a halt by the side of the coffin, jump in and say: “Great I just made it.””
I was going to go to guitar center, but my guitar teacher told me to go to a place in Lexington that specializes in acoustics. I’d lived there for a decade and never knew it existed.
The place had probably around 50-100 acoustics, and it was a blast trying them. Gibsons and Martins were a letdown. Collings sounded great, but they didn’t have anything below $2,000.
Then I tried a Taylor. To be honest, I had come into the store thinking I might get a Taylor - I’d watched some comparion videos on Youtube and they seemed to fit the bill. I knew I had to pick one based on how it sounded in person though, so I was careful not to bias myself too much.
