The Guitarist: A Lyrical Story by Ruel Fordyce
Every so often a love story comes along that kindles our hearts to want to love that special someone much more than we already do. The Guitarist is such a book. It’s a celebration of love in all its forms, a tale that makes us all believe that this thing we call love is multi-dimensional.
Lu is an upcoming Guitarist and composer that performs with a local group called G4 at various nightclubs. Though he possessed tremendous talent as a composer, he was yet to write his first song. The basement was he haven; an escape from the outside world where his creative juices could be blended into sultry sounds. Yet, every time Lu experienced a creative block he would divert to write lyrical pieces in his diary, a practice that captured his heart even more so than composing music.
Lu is torn between remaining as a member of the group as he realizes that his newfound talent might be what defines his calling. With summer a few weeks away and his wife rearranging the house’s décor, it would be wise for Lu to keep his guitar and other accompaniments out of her way. As Mary relocates items that do not fit into her décor to the basement she encounters Lu’s personal diary. It should remain personal but not this one, as she takes a sneak peek to see what he’s been up to. What she discovers is a collection of lyrical pieces (not songs) strung together as one story that detail in its purest form both the ugly and beautiful sides in the pursuit of love.
