Playing Vintage Guitars - Song Performance

I am completely new to the world of vintage guitars. But I decided to take a plunge recently and got a refinished 1960 Fender Strat, and I absolutely love it!

I wrote a new song with it for this tutorial. You can watch and learn the song on the next page.

As we all know, guitars have their own unique vibes when you hold and play them. I wanted to sit down and see how writing with an older guitar influenced my playing. And the song you'll hear on the next page is what resulted. I definitely know I wouldn't have written the same piece of music had I been using a modern Strat or any other modern guitar. The "age" of the guitar kind of speaks to you as you play it.

If you ever have the opportunity to play or buy a vintage instrument, I highly recommend it. They can be pricey, but well worth it. If you can't get an older guitar but still want that old "feel", check out relic editions. Some relics are very well made.

Here it is in its case. Even with how old and beat up the case is, it just screams history and character.
