Basile de Loose “Tuning the Guitar”

Since the beginning of all time – as far as guitarists are concerned – we have spent most of our days tuning rather than playing. Sometimes it takes so long that it can be caught on film or even painted as it was here by Basile de Loose (1809-1885). Poor kids don’t even have electronic tuners or iPhones.

  1. Ironic that the painter’s last name is de Loose…. similar to what is happening to the guitar strings… they are loosening on the lady. 🙂
