A Guitar That Can Be Seen From Heaven
« on: May 14, 2011, 09:46:19 AM »
More than two-thirds of a mile long, this "land art" guitar is made out of 7000 trees...

http://guitarsquid.com/Latest/a-guitar-that-can-be-see-from-heaven.html

What's even more impressive is the true story behind it, which is Notebook-esque but far more sappier. Farmer Pedro Martin Ureta created the massive guitar out of cypress and eucalyptus trees as a tribute to his wife, Graciela Yraizoz, who died at the age of 25. Yraizoz had once mused that it would be neat to make a land art guitar. Her loving husband, now 70, granted her wish with a massive undertaking that took years to take root and is now best appreciated from the sky

Salamat sa mga naka appreciate nito...
I almost gave up on GC, but when peeps like you guys "like" this link, there is hope @ GC...  8-)

kakasawa narin yung mga thread on who's got the best tone, or my DIY gear can beat your boutique gear, or lost in blues groove, or conservatory trained musicians VS oido/zifra musicians, & all that crap...

this humble farmer made a land art guitar as a tribute to his  loving wife who died almost half a century ago...how cool is that?  8-)

+1. nakakasawa na talaga ang mga tone arguments. as the song goes, why can't we be friends? :-) the guy who made this must love his wife so much that he sacrificed his time and planted 7000 trees just to make this.

haha madaldal. madami dito nyan. puro dal dal. BANO naman. parang yung isa jan na mahilig magsalita ng "kupal". kupal yung mukhang baboy na yun eh.

such low blows are done outside Philmusic.  and if you're really that serious, you can tell it to his face.

Be a man
We must be swift as the coursing river
Be a man

Mysterious as the dark side of the moon

since the topic is turning into a kantiyawan and insult hurling.
