TEEN ACOUSTIC GUITAR PROJECT
Bringing together a group of young guitarists, the Teen Acoustic Guitar Project (inspired by “The Acoustic Guitar Project”) passes one acoustic guitar with one digital recorder from one musician to the next within New York City. After receiving the guitar and recorder, each teen has one week to write and record an original song using only the guitar and their voice. The project reinforces the Guitar Mash commitment to the communal and aims to bolster the community of teens making and sharing music together.
The signed guitar debuted at the 3rd Annual Guitar Mash Annual Benefit Jam at City Winery on November 16th, 2014.
Before passing it off to a fellow teen, each musician signs the guitar and posts their photo online: #GuitarMash #OneWeek. These posts connect the individuals to the group and also allow our community a sneak peak into the project’s process.
