9780747585640: Guitar Man.

The guitar is the iconic instrument of modern popular music. It is portable, it has history, and it will always be hip. But why has the guitar become such a classic? Will Hodgkinson, a wannabe guitar player, whose only experience was an afternoon's bashing on a friend's guitar at the age of sixteen, set out to find out. Along the way he hoped to teach himself a few chords too. His goal was to get good enough to play before a live audience in just six months--even if it threatened to drive his wife and family to the point of insanity. His trip becomes an odyssey: He chats with British folk legend Bert Jansch, ex-Smith's guitarist Johnny Marr, and reclusive folk guitar legend Davey Graham, as well as Sufjan Stevens, PJ Harvey, and Cat Power's chanteuse Chan Marshall. He travels to America and with a hurricane brewing visits Roger McGuinn from the Byrds. He travels to the Deep South, looking for the spirit of Robert Johnson, and drops in on T-Model Ford, an old bluesman living in Mississippi. Gloriously readable and highly amusing, Guitar Man is classic obsessional nonfiction for a nation of guitar freaks.

About the Author:

Will Hodgkinson has written for the Guardian, Mojo, and the Daily Telegraph, among other publications. He lives with his wife and two children in London.

From Publishers Weekly:

After hearing "Anji," a beautiful acoustic-guitar piece written and recorded by 1960s British folkie Davey Graham, Hodgkinson made it his goal to learn the instrument and perform in front of an audience within six months, kicking off a physical, mental and (arguably) transcendental journey that's eminently readable. A British thirty-something freelance journalist, Hodgkinson uses his industry connections to seek guitar lessons from the likes of Roger McGuinn, Johnny Marr (formerly of The Smiths), alt-rocker PJ Harvey and Graham himself. A less capable writer could have come off sounding narcissistic, but Hodgkinson's witty, self-effacing style goes down easy, inviting comparison to American pop-culture writer Chuck Klosterman. His penchant for digression is similarly Klostermanian: his touching and scathing observations during a road trip through America in search of the blues, his infuriating and heartbreaking encounter with aging cult hero Les Paul and his colorful portrayal of others along his journey make Hodgkinson's efforts to learn the guitar seem almost incidental. Particularly endearing are the straight-laced new dad and the wasted hippie who join Hodgkinson to make his Double Fantasy band. Pop culture fans will get almost as much out of this narrative as frustrated musicians; Hodgkinson's struggles with his labor of love are highly relatable, as is his conclusion that joy can, indeed, be found in the journey.
