I am....My metaphor thing.

I am that incredibly complex yet surprisingly simplistic guitar riff. The magnificent result of love and dedication, created for her, for him, for them. For smiles and tears, boo’s and applause. Contained within are notes of love and hate, hammer-on and pull-off’s of both rage and tranquility, with a hint of death metal and sometimes a little classical. Striving to bring a crowd to its feet or just a tear to her eye, simply concocted for conviction during a garage band day dream.  The words “I love and hate you” resonate from me to anyone giving the tiniest bit of their time to listen. Whether it’s from that boy to his beloved girl or from that rock star to his or her massive audience. I am that constant musical and rhythmic explosion of energy and passion that bombards your eardrums with the pleasantries of inspiration and a familiar voice, that friendly face and that shoulder to cry on. I am that special and specific ambience fit for that perfect occasion, just precisely timed and cleverly placed. I hope to one day be something more then just a line in a song or a brief jingle in your head, but for now I’ll stay that incredibly complex yet surprisingly simplistic guitar riff.
