Justin guitar in war time

More than a month ago started a war in my country, a brutal one with too many young people dying in both sides of the border. The news about the war got me in a moment of practice with Justin Guitar lesson and since than playing the guitar is the only thing to keep my head in one piece.
If I had to choose one song it would be Imagine from John Lennon, as I believe in each and every word in this song. Now I live in the exact opposite, learning music is what keeps me going and believing that one day…
I am beginner but would love to play with others, so if someone in Israel is willing to play together let me know. I’m 60, loves blues, beginner but guitar enthusiasts.
I would like to thanks Justin for this beautiful project which is like oxygen for me this days.
I wish peace for the Middle East and a better world full of music for all of us.


Hi Meron,
Welcome here and I wish you a lot of fun and distraction from all the bad things,

Actually, I don`t know wars that aren’t brutal.

If everyone would listen to John Lennon, maybe there wouldn’t be wars. Imagine is so fitting for the wars we have in this world today.

Have you ever heard of ‘I don’t look for problems, problems find me’ ???


Hi Meron,
Hope you and your family stay safe and hopefully the madness will be resolved quickly.
Take care,

Welcome to the community, Meron!

I don’t have any words for the horrible situation you and so many other are in currently. So it’s good to hear that music and learning guitar give you at least a little bit of peace of mind each day. That’s the power of music. Keep my fingers crossed it will coninuously help you and rather sooner than later the people in middle east can live in peace again. It could be such a wonderful world without those wars going on…

Stay safe and take care, Maron! All the best.

Cheers - Lisa
