If you are familiar with the Breedlove Oregon Series, then you are acquainted with Breedlove's affinity for crafting instruments using a historically versatile tonewood, called Myrtlewood. Breedlove is the first large scale U.S. manufacturer to incorporate this fantastic tonewood in a production line of instruments. Myrtlewood as a top tonewood yields jaw-dropping aesthetics.
Being a simple strummer myself, I can fully appreciate the time these ladies have put into mastering their instrument. But it’s their passion that really shines through. I’ve met or seen most of these amazing players perform live, and let me just say, WOWZA!
As musicians, we all have to memorize music, lyrics, chords, dynamics and more. That alone can be daunting and definitely requires some effort. It’s easier to memorize a song you really like or perhaps one you’ve written yourself. I find the best way to start memorizing a song you didn’t write is to listen to it as much as possible. Put it on your portable player and listen both actively and passively.
