THE ACOUSTIC GUITAR PROJECT
The Acoustic Guitar Project is a global music platform and concert series that inspires musicians to write an original song and record it live in one week. The way it works is they choose a city and five local musicians. Then they provide them with an acoustic guitar and a recorder. Each musician has one week to write an original song and record it live. No editing is allowed. Musicians also shoot a video describing their experience and/or song. Each musician signs the guitar and takes a picture with it. The song is then uploaded to the AGP website, along with their picture and video. Then the guitar is passed to the next artist in that city. When all five musicians have completed their songs there is a concert. During the performance, each musician plays the song they wrote for the project and tells the story behind it. The mission is threefold: to inspire creativity by simplifying its process to the bare essentials, to encourage a deeper connection between the artist and their art and to tell truthful, meaningful stories. AMI Guitars is a proud sponsor of this important international guitar program.
