/EINPresswire.com/ Following tips last week about purchasing the perfect beginner’s guitar, TakeLessons shared with readers some off-the-wall guitar designs to spark interest in the instrument.

Last night at the CMA Awards, The Band Perry took home three awards, Taylor Swift reigned as Entertainer of the Year (this marks the second year she’s won the award), and a total of 29 performers graced the stage throughout the night. As with any awards show, these honors are a true testament to an artist’s hard work and talent.

For those with goals to someday be up there on stage as well, TakeLessons (http://takelessons.com), the nation’s fastest growing music lesson provider, is here to help. TakeLessons has hired and certified instructors in over 2,000 cities nationwide, and is committed to helping students of all ages reach their musical goals. To spark even more interest in music lessons, the TakeLessons blog recently featured some off-the-wall guitar designs, courtesy of Design Buzz (http://www.designbuzz.com/entry/10-unique-guitar-designs-find-chords/). The following is an excerpt from the blog post and just a few of the crazy designs:

1. Lego Guitar

Remember the small plastic building blocks you used to play with in your childhood? It seems like the ghosts of your past has come back to haunt you. This time, it’s in the form of a guitar, the body of which is made up of black LEGO bricks. It has everything – from pickups to in-built amplifiers – but lacks the strings. If the latter are fitted, the guitar is ready to rock the world.

2. Big Foot Guitar

Big Foot may be meeting a slow death as a legend, but its inspiration seems to pull it back to the limelight again. George Martin, a guitar builder, introduced the Bigfoot guitar at a Miami festival, stunning everyone present with the bulky, odd-looking frame. Though it looks too bulky to be playable, but the design itself has gathered its own followers, no matter what it sounds like – or whether it sounds anything at all!

3. Foldable Guitar

Guitars are more than instruments for many guitarists: they are their long-time soul-mates. But it’s difficult to carry their soul-mates everywhere. Designers have tried to design compact-size guitars by modifying the body, but the fret-board is another matter. No matter what one does, chopping the board down is next to impossible.

By sharing these crazy designs with blog readers, TakeLessons aims to help increase interest in music lessons. Readers are invited to provide their own thoughts by commenting on the TakeLessons blog, where teachers can also view tips on planning a holiday recital, and also welcomes comments on Facebook (http://facebook.com/takelessons).
