Green Guitar

July 25, 2021

This is my green Ibanez electric guitar.  I purchased it when I was 15 years old.  When I was a kid, I mowed yards to make money.  I saved up all of my grass cash to purchase this bright green guitar.  There was a lot of sweat that went into acquiring this instrument.  I was certain it would make me so incredibly cool that all the girls would love me.  That never happened.

As a folk singer, I don’t have much use for a neon green electric guitar.  I decided it would be a more useful instrument if I set it up as a baritone.  I use strings designed for a seven string guitar.  It’s tuned a fifth lower than a normal guitar.  The neck length is not as long as an actual baritone guitar so there are issues with it staying in tune.  That’s the price I pay for being so incredibly cool.  

I just recorded a song for my “Green Curtain Sessions” that used this guitar. I also used it extensively for the arrangement of Kissing Tree on my Sycamore release.
