The Song Remains The Same

The Song Remains The Same

GUITAR LESSONS LONDON are delighted to share this article written by student and good friend Auryn Jones.

I have always loved the guitar, playing and listening, it is a fantastic instrument of wonder and passion. The sounds that can be created are like no other, its like magic when you find that awesome riff or the melody that could sooth angels. Many bands and artists have based their whole persona purely on the guitar, for example Led Zeppelin.

The greatest rock group of all time, their music has inspired thousands of players, but what many people didn’t know about this group is that almost 40% of their songs are acoustic. The guitar has been constantly developing, from blues and jazz to death metal and screamo. But the idea and aim for all these guitarists has been the same since the beginning, to create something someone else couldn’t. Jack White from the white stripes, a fantastic rhythm guitarist who has created and developed some of the most keen riffs in music to this day.

Jimi Hendrix, the most influential and musical guitarist ever, his songs weaved through the public eye, many people misunderstood what he was looking at.

The guitar is a unique instrument, the sound that is created all comes from its user each individual player is different, you may want to play in the style of Hendrix but you will still be playing in your own way. If the person is sad, this will be reflected in the music he writes or plays, the guitar is not just an instrument is is also a sort of medium for emotions. For anybody who is writing music or playing, it all comes from a creative spark, usually being very spontaneous. Playing the guitar is just the key, it unlocks a whole new culture, you begin to explore music, find new artists you have never heard of before, perhaps a Swedish neo-classical speed player Yngwie Malmsteen. As you begin to play and you’re past the point of giving up, the road of music becomes wider and longer stretching the sounds of what you know, the different genres spread out like branches.


As you practice and play more, your style changes constantly changing and evolving into something new. As soon as I uncover a new technique or lick I play and play, not so I can ‘master’ technique but so I can explore the details around it. Some people find playing the guitar is there way of letting out their everyday annoyances, if someone honks the horn in the car behind you or if you were to spill a cup of water. Some people see the playing as a battle, they want to conquer the instrument.

Being able to play the guitar is a life achievement you can do something that someone else cannot do without years of practice, they can’t have beginners luck. Human beings love music and they always will. So if you ever go astray on your playing or thinking your not progressing go back to that goal in your head, the reason why you  wanted you to start in the first place, that thing or idea and just picture the goal. The day when you pick up a guitar and there’s nothing coming through whatsoever. There’s no new ideas or your hands are too stiff to play. That’s the sort of nightmare every creative person has. There’s always that point when it might happen to you, when you’re too old to pick the guitar up. And we’re just trying to keep that day far, far away, and out of sight.
