The Rusty Guitar


Thursday Challenge – Music
(Instruments, CDs, Live Performance, Sheet Music...)




This is my brother's guitar. He used to attend music classes during his school days but then quit half way. Since then it managed to find its place in our attic and grew pretty old and rusty. Now it rests there peacefully as a memory..

This picture post is shared in Thursday Photo Challenge – For Fun and Learning.

    1. lol it was many years ago. and then at that time, there was no one we knew who was in need of a guitar in our small town.. well, now it is there in our house as a childhood memory. :)

  10. I have seen many amateurs snapping away connections with musical instruments. My bro is one of them. He finds it difficult, even after 50 years to part with the instrument...
    Lovely images, Li'l rat!

  15. well..the photographs rekindle memories of my past as well.. no I was not a rockstar but I loved posing like them .. long hair and guitar of my friend and click click click :D
    worst was when I was asked to play it, by the girl who had seen those snaps and then we met after she had insisted a common friend to get her introduced to me ...hehehe
    I had to confess I dont know the language of the instrument hence it will not sing for me :D .. that i was a fake rockstar !
