creedos on toast


This is my Gibson.

There are many like it, but this one is mine.

My Gibson is my best friend. It is my life.

I must master it as I must master my life.

My Gibson without me is useless. Without my Gibson, I am useless.

I must strum my Gibson true.

I must shred longer than my enemy who is trying to outplay me.

I must rock him before he rocks me. I will…

My Gibson and myself know that what counts in music is not the notes we play,

the noise of our chords, nor the riffs we make.

We know it is the groove that counts. We will slay…

My Gibson is human, even as I, because it is my life.

Thus, I will learn it as a brother.

I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its parts, its accessories,
its strings, and its frets.

I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage.

I will keep my Gibson clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready.

We will become part of each other. We will…

Before my Amp I swear this creed.

My Gibson and myself are the defenders of my tunes.

We are the masters of our enemy.

We are the saviors of my life.

So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace.

5 Thoughts.
