So, down here in Nashville, TN, there is this thing called the Brotherhood of the Guitar. This brotherhood is a group made up of up and coming guitarists (men and women) from all over the country. This group was created by Robert M. Knight, a photographer that has photographed Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Steve Vai (to name a few).
The Brotherhood of the Guitar was designed to give young, up and coming guitarists exposure and a spotlight. The website was designed so that these young guitarists could tell others who they were and what they want to accomplish with their musical talents. Not only is the Brotherhood great for exposure, it’s also great for networking. These guitarists have the opportunity to make the journey to success together.
However, My one question is: What about the bass guitarists out there? We spend so much of our time in the shadows, I think we deserve something like the Brotherhood of the Guitar. We should call it “The Fellowship of the Bass.” Then, we can call ourselves The Fellowship and our catch phrase could be “One Clef To Rule Them All.” (I sincerely hope Lord of the Rings fans got me that way I don’t seem like a total geek)
Also, check out the Brotherhood guitarists! Not only are they amazing people, but they are sincerely talented! Check it out!
