The Acoustic Guitar Project

"A musician is selected by The Acoustic Guitar Project and is provided an acoustic guitar and a handheld recorder. 
That musician has one week to record an original song using only the equipment provided. 
No editing is allowed.

When the musician is finished, they sign the guitar and pass it on to the next musician. When we reach a pre-selected number of musicians, that guitar is retired and there is a concert. "

Check out project #9 to see who participated in the 2014 Amsterdam project . Many familiar faces. 

October 31st there will be a show at the Backstage Hotel by these artists performing their Acoustic Guitar Project songs.
