Slider Does the instrament make the difference? (17) Does the instrument make the difference? 08 Jul 99

Dear Friends, Have you ever laid hands on an instrument that completely changed your approach to the music that you love? I just bought a 12 string guitar that has me playing stuff that I didn't even know that I knew how to play. I got it for cheap, and the next thing you know, I 've got Leadbelly and other folk stuff coming off my fingertips! I have since been developing my calouses and listening to the stuff in my head. All of a sudden, that Blind Willie McTell stuff sounds just the way it should! Even my wife says that it didn't take me long to make the change from the six string. Being an "ear" musician, I would love to hear about others who have waited for the call of just that "right" and totally inspiring guitar ,or what have you , that put you on the proper path to your own little piece of musical NERVANA.
