Holiday Giveaways # 8 – Woodstock Folk Guitar & Case
We’ve already covered my lack of innate talent for piano, but we haven’t even talked about the guitar. My musical mother (who you may recall plays the piano) is also a gifted guitarist. Early memories abound of singing “Blowin’ in the Wind” as she played beside me. In college, I decided it was high time to learn how to play. But as it turned out, I was even more inept at guitar than I was at piano. I decided to stick to singing.
But as a kid, I imagine I would have LOVED a toy guitar like the Woodstock Folk Guitar. Everything about my mother’s guitar fascinated me. The smooth, polished wood, the strings with different weights and textures, the tuning pegs, cool to the touch and indented for my fingers. The smell of the forest. But especially the hole. The dark hole that magically reverberated the sound of the strings and transformed it into music. Until I covered it with my hand or dropped something inside. A guitar is a full-on sensory experience. The Woodstock Folk Guitar loses none of that in the translation to child-size.
The Woodstock Folk Guitar is today’s giveaway. Enter to win.
