Original songs
written and recorded live
in one week

How It Works

The Acoustic Guitar Project is a global music platform — and concert series — that inspires musicians to write an original song and record it live in one week.

The Mission

How it works

One Guitar

We choose a city, and five local musicians, and provide them with an acoustic guitar and a simple recorder.

One Week

Each musician has one week to write an original song and record it live. No editing is allowed. Musicians also shoot a video describing their experience and/or song.

One Song

Each musician signs the guitar and takes picture with it. We upload their song, their picture and video to the site. Then, the guitar is passed on to the next artist in that city.

Concert Series

When all five musicians have completed their songs, there is a concert. During the performance, each musician plays the song they wrote for the project and tells the story behind it.
