Tone Talk with Shelby Means By GGM Staff - March 5, 2019
It was a pleasure to sit down with Guitar Girl Magazine and answer some questions for them! Here is a snippet and follow the link for the full article.
What is your definition of tone and how has it changed over the years?
Tone is life; it is my fingers on the string, my breath, and intention on my vocal cords, my hand on the bow, the weight of my shoulder, and the resonance of energy that creates sound waves in time. Tone is all encompassing and all about our perception… it can be pleasing or harsh, popping with attack or sweet and gentle. It can sustain and awaken deep currents of energy in my body, in plants, and into you too! When you open and receive tone you allow the sound waves to greet your ears, move your lips in a smile, your soul in a prayer, your body in a dance. Equipment changes and emotions deepen through time but it is always you and always me creating sound waves and receiving life.
