I have a GIBSON Les-paul, a guitar I dreamt to posses since I first saw her being played by Slash on top of the piano in the November Rain video clip some 17 years ago, but which I only got her early this year after years of hard work (including getting a PhD). But the waiting made it all worthwhile. And I thank Allah for this 'nikmah' of life, alhamdullillah.
Why Gibson? Only Gibson’s lovers know the answer. But it’s a clear cut thing you know; it’s either you a Gibson or you are the rest (Fender, Ibanez, Jackson, Paul Reed Smith etc). It’s the attitude!
Attitudes resonated by BLUES. If you have a Gibson, blues is your soul; rebellious, arrogant, self-centered but mysterious and who else can express it the best if not Dr HOUSE; the cool but typical eccentric intellectual figure as well as Jung Yong Hwa of CN BLUE (only to mention contemporary names)
AND ME............(psst!, trace the bold and underlined words above, they make the title “GIBSON, BLUES, HOUSE AND ME”. Sync isn’t? Haha.. and by the way, below are three videos; the first, me playing blues with my Gibson and the second, Dr House playing his Gibson Les-paul and the third his Gibson Flying V. We both play Gibson, take note guys!.).
