What you think about this?

as we see playing guitar as a form of mindful escapism, a way to create space between an individual and their busy mind. Guitar-playing is beneficial to your overall well-being and mental health in other ways, too, including helping you develop a greater sense of personal achievement.

It is fantastic exercise for one's memory and dexterity, physical benefits.
One can be lifted away by the music and inspired to connect with others in an abstract creative group endeavor, spiritual benefits.

One can even think about it. I try not to think (in verbal terms - words and defined ideas) when I am playing.

I've met lots of wonderful and talented people sharing music, social benefits.

I love it!!!!!

The guitar can provide mental challenges as we strive to learn more and improve. It can also provide a heathy mental escape from the world around us. It's much like martial arts practice and/or playing a game of chess. For an hour or so you concentrate on the game and/or your skills. When you are done you realize all the worlds problems that were bugging you were ignored and that you tuned them out. Works for any sport and/or a good book, movie, guitar, other instrument, etc. You have escaped from the world and cleared your mind while adding to your knowledge and physical attributes through concentration. You became a little better guitar player during your practice and then you can take it out and play it for someone...or just lock yourself in a room and play for your own enjoyment. cool


Take care, Larryz

I think the benefits of music are well-established, even for a purely passive listener.
For those fortunate to be able to create music it's even better. I wouldn't shout this in a record store if I had
a CD out, but actively producing something creative is far more powerful than just consuming it. Creating something is
more engaging and better for staying sane.

β€˜It's indescribable how listening to a song can change everything. It's said that a powerful enough song can even change your life. Music can even teach what humanity cannot always – how to be human, live, feel and love. I'd recommend to anyone that if things aren't going right, and you don't know what to do, just turn up some good music, and tune out for a few minutes before you attempt to figure everything out again.’
