Bonding over guitars


RIGHT NOTE: Ehsaan Noorani T

he bond between a guitarist and his instrument has always been a strong  one. But till he or she does not find the right guitar, the musician inside that person does not rest. Ehsaan Noorani, a composer and guitarist from the Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy trio, too shares that bond with his guitar. “I have had many guitars but there is this one particular guitar I picked up and I just knew this was it,” said Ehsaan, who was in the City to launch Music Unlimited, a musical instrument store.

Happy to see more and more stores opening in the City, Ehsaan said it would be a good opportunity for young budding musicians to get good quality instruments. “When I first started out, there was no place or people to direct you to get quality instruments, with more and more stores like this opening I am sure it will encourage young talent to come out,” he added.

Along with a lot of enthusiastic youngsters, who were on the look-out for their perfect instrument, were the members of the city-bred band, Thermal and a Quarter, who had come to check what was in store. “Every time I have come to the City for a visit or to perform, I have seen some very good talent. I have known Bruce Lee Mani for a very long time and I really enjoy their music,” added Ehsaan.

Currently having finished composing music for Wake Up Sid, Ehsaan said that the audience can expect something very young and fresh from the songtrack. “The music for the film is very contemporary and fresh, in fact more fresh than Rock On,” he said.

The inauguration was then followed by an interactive workshop for youngsters and a lucky draw was organised, where winners received autographed guitars.
