I remember the first time I went to the Adriatic, I didn’t really know what quite to expect. Of course, a lot of my initial expectations were based on assumptions I got from my last trip to Venice, Italy.
I was expecting wide open streets, I was expecting the same type of architecture, which is kind of a fusion between Western Latin style architecture and Byzantine and Greek influences. Boy, was I in for a shock.
When I went to Croatia, I was just blown away. First of all, it was so cheap.
How cheap was it? Well, you can stay for a month in Croatia for the same amount of money that would cost you a one week stay in parts of the United States or Western Europe. That is cheap. Believe me.
And I’m not just talking about rent. I’m also talking about food and accommodations and the whole experience. It really is something else.
But besides the bargain, what really got to me was the culture of the people. When you go to any open plaza, there will be lots of musicians there, and people would be very kind and nice to each other, and there is the sense of a small town family type of environment.
Now, of course, being a foreigner, I was obviously not related to the locals, but they didn’t care.
Also, the whole idea of the Italian big family warmth where Italians are very expressive, emotional and also very warm and compassionate, I saw that in full display in the Adriatic as well.
Now, these people spoke a different language. They spoke Croatian. But it really blew my mind as to how similar the cultures were.
And of course, no discussion of Latin culture would be complete without guitar music. If you’ve ever listened to Spanish guitar music, you know what I’m talking about.
It really reaches deep into your soul. It really speaks to you in so many different levels.
When I was listening to Adriatic area musicians do their thing on the guitar, I was really just transported to a different time and place. It really was quite something.
And since I played the guitar on my own, when it came time for me to buy a new guitar, I was really dumbfounded as to how to capture that sound.
It’s not just a question of setting or tuning the guitar correctly. It also had something to do with the actual physical guitar itself.
So it took me a while to replicate the authentic Adraitac area guitar music that I have heard during my vacation.
Finally, I found some reviews that gave me some sort of inkling that the guitar that they are evaluating may produce the sound range I was looking for. I was not disappointed.
So if you’re looking to experience the same musical soul that you heard in your Adriatic experiences, check out these reviews. Be prepared to get blown away once you ordered the guitars and you start playing them in the comfort of your home.
