The Guitar Circle

Robert Fripp's new book

I’ll say this: the day you finish reading a 561-page book about practicing guitar, you practice guitar.

Robert Fripp’s new book, The Guitar Circle, is a beast. A mountain of aphorisms. Seemingly every other page is aphoristic in one way or another — and then in case you missed any, there’s a nearly 40-page alphabetical list of them at the end. It’s also quite funny (witness his rebirth as a YouTube sensation with his wife, Toyah Willcox) and odd, so don’t fall for any “He’s an old prog curmudgeon” preconceptions.
