The Acoustic Guitar Project in Tokyo 2016!!!
& this years guitar!!

I'm really happy to announce that the Acoustic Guitar Project (AGP) has come to Tokyo for the first time!!
The AGP is a songwriting challenge that started in New York in 2012. It has now spread to 46 cities across the world.
How it works!
Each participating city has its own guitar. Every season, five local musicians are chosen to write an original song on their city's guitar.
Each musician has one week to write their original song and record it live. Musicians can only use the guitar and handheld recorder provided. No editing is allowed.
When a musician finishes their song, they sign the guitar and take picture with it. Musicians also shoot a video talking about their song. When all five musicians have finished their songs, there is a concert.
I'm curating this years project and I've found five fantastic and very different Japanese musicians to participate. This is this years guitar, a sweet fender ga45sce, which I bought at a pinch of what it's worth new. I can't wait to hear what Tokyo creates!
Stay tuned for more information on the artists and their songs. Also check out the AGP website for all the artists and cities participating across the world.
