Musical Influences

I have caught myself saying a certain phrase or a word in a particular way that sounds just like my dad. It is both strange and cool at the same time. I am not trying to sound like him but it is part of my DNA and this also extends to my brother and we have similarities in speech as well. Close friends and co-workers can also be a source of vocabulary and there are probably times that you say things out of “habit” because you have heard them over and over. Now I catch my kids saying phrases that sound like me and it goes round and round.


We have been standing at the edge of the water contemplating “yes or no”. Well, this is our first dive into the lesson blog pool and I invite you to join us as we explore various topics relating to guitar, bass, ukulele, drums, piano, voice, gear and music in general. Our goal is to inform, educate, entertain, motivate and hopefully inspire you along the way. 

There is a cast of characters here at David’s Guitar Loft and we have often thought that we are a sitcom in the making. Some of the stories will probably remain untold but we will offer the occasional peek into the wacky world of musicians while helping you better understand the music you are studying. We will tap into the unique perspective of the DGL instructors to help shed light on common issues that most students can relate to and hear about the strategies used to be successful. 

A new video series will also accompany the blog to give you even more quality content so check back each week for the latest posts and enjoy the ride.
