My wife is guest writing today...If you have been following my blog since I started writing it (Everyday Fish Philippines), you will of course know I am from the Philippines. What you may not know is music is the lifeblood of the Filipino. We live and breathe music, we romance each other with music it is in our very soul. Most Filipinos can play a musical instrument, being a banjo, ukelele, or an instrument familiar to a native tribe, but the ultimate is the classical Spanish Guitar. Playing a guitar evokes images of gentleman wooing their sweethearts in the tradition of the Ligaw (courting). I had always wanted to buy a guitar but it was too expensive for us to afford.
