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.Make a tax-deductible donation
How it works
One GuitarWe choose a city, and five local musicians, and provide them with an acoustic guitar and a simple recorder.
One WeekEach 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 SongEach 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.
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.
- To inspire creativity by simplifying its process to the bare essentials
- To encourage a deeper connection between the artist and their art
- To tell truthful, meaningful stories
