Music Theory and Composition Features Lichty Guitars
Don Rath Jr’s website, Music Theory and Composition, is as dynamic and multi-layered as the music Don composes. At Music Theory and Composition he has provided a wealth of informative and inspirational articles and interviews that each touch, in some way, on the creative spark that is the birth of all music. Don is a man with a big heart and a big vision. As he continues to add to the depth of resources he has currently published, Music Theory and Composition will become a major hub of information covering all facets of the music industry.
A bit about this prolific writer and composer: Don is the President of StringTunes, an independent music publisher, and a contemporary instrumental music composer, arranger and guitarist. His music features the stringed instruments with a primary focus on guitar, string quartets and small group ensembles. You can enjoy a sample of his music at his website.
We are proud to share a wonderful article that Don has written on Lichty Guitars. In preparing for this feature he carefully studied http://lichtyguitars.com and we had lengthy phone conversations in order for him to “really get” Lichty Guitars. That he picked up on our commitment to give back through the annual guitar raffle for the non-profit LEAF means a great deal to us, as well.
“As a guitarist, I find the tie-in between the luthier and the performer to be special and most significant. Going to a retail store and buying a factory built guitar is a gratifying experience but the level of satisfaction is far greater when purchasing a hand built custom made musical instrument. You can deepen that experience further with Lichty Guitars by being personally involved in the decisions about wood selection, size and other design characteristics for your next guitar or ukulele. Whether you are performing in a large venue or playing in your living room, that custom process results in an instrument that fits you and your needs in every way. The fact that you have played an active and important role in the design of your new acoustic guitar or ukulele, in a special cooperative dance with the person actually building your instrument, is icing on the cake each time you play, that’s when it all comes home, that’s when it all really matters.” – excerpt from article by Don Rath, Jr
