I've Got a New Guitar

Get Flash to see this player.

The guitar was literally bought in a second hand store. We were browsing and I made a joke about a beat up guitar they were asking $50 for, and i said, "I'd give 'em $5" and we went to the desk and they said OK. the tuning machines were busted and the strings were shot and the neck was warped.

I replaced the machines and the strings, but everything UP the neck got sharper and sharper, so i had to record the lead a bunch of times so i could re-tune for the error and cut up the tracks and paste the ones that were in tune.

you can google the brand...it is a Giannini Model 6/A Serial # 5258 made in brazil in 1969. it's all chipped up but charming none-the-less.

All guitars and percussion you hear was played on this guitar except for the tambourine.

I’ve got a new guitar
you bought it for me in a second hand store
and just like me it's a little bit old
out of tune
and travel worn

but oh the stories we could tell
if I could learn to play it well
upon my new guitar

there's a hole in my heart
and my back is broke
and I’m falling apart

you know the words I’m gonna say
you know the chords I’m gonna play
there's nothing new about this old guitar

and when I'm lost, and can't find the key
just like a song, you bring it home to me

A bargain I reckon
How I identify with those lyrics!

Lovely song Michael. I really like how you used the guitar for everything.

I have 4 second hand shop guitars and apart from one they are pretty much unplayable but look great :-)

Warm and inviting. Charming that it's all done on the one instrument. I've always liked guitar tap percussion. Tender vocals. Nicely done!

Even if it's out of tune, it inspires. $5.00 very well spent, just for this song. But I'm sure it will contribute to many more good ones.
