~Master Guitarist/Composer,
Affectionately known as the Troubadour. Also author of the book and screenplay "Song of the Troubadour"~

"Within an instrumental Love song, you can feel the said and the unsaid because you hear the flow within the chordal progressions, the cadences, the syncopations, and the intonations. The rise and fall, the crescendo like the waves of the ocean as the merge into One, it is a painting of the artists brush that gives birth to lyrics that are not of words. Its a making Love with the instrument of six strings which then gives birth to such beauty. With lyrics, there is a sense of directness, of feeling that entwines with the instrumental that can evoke that timelessness and infiniteness of a burst of emotion which is given within the instrumental yet also gives meaning within a story of frozen thoughts, of passion, of desire expressed. The deepness, the vastness, the richness of such a song is as infinite as the flow of the sea, and as beautiful as the palette within the rainbow of colours expressed. When we flow within the river of Love, such desire and passion unleashed is the blossoming of the heart as it burst forth painting such a canvas. The gift of song is the piercing of loves arrows as they evoke such passion, as it is passion that is the purpose of life. It matters not if the lyrical content is of lower or higher chakras, what matters is the invocation of the feelings of love, passion, and desire derived from such lyrics and that such an artist is in complete alignment with the music that they create. When an artist can invoke such within the listener, regardless of whether it is love and light words or not, that is a true master artist." ~unknown
