Gary Lee Joyner—Atomic Guitar
© 2012, 2017
The intention and goal of the content and form of my Atomic Guitar videos is to shake loose ideas about how to learn, how to experience music, how to play guitar, how to think, and so on...to, in fact, play guitar rather than be a "guitar player"...taking the experience toward Husserlian phenomenology, stripping away received baggage and nonsense in favor of simple clarity about the activity. As I said in one of the videos, the name "Atomic Guitar" isn't intended as the sort of explosive hyperbole we have grown accustomed to in today's consumer-driven marketing world. Instead, it refers to the tiniest particles—building blocks.
