Dani is the inspiration of the main character Alejandro in Gitarista. Because this looks cooler than a t-shirt with the book cover.

Gitarista is set in 1970s Manila after all. The radio knobs and tuner are non-functioning and for aesthetic purposes only. Also, the Macbook and iPad (which can fit inside the bag) are NOT INCLUDED.

  1. Congratulations Reev and THANK YOU for the goodies! Super! 🙂 I just couldn’t pass up a chance to hopefully win this giveaway, I mean who wouldn’t want to?

  2. Congratulations Reev! This is such a great treat for everyone. 🙂 Please write more awesome stories. Also—who wouldn’t want to get their hands on the prizes? Thanks. *crossing my fingers now*


  3. here’s my poem for you Reev based from my reading of Gitarista;


    Don’t under estimate the heart of a guitar major!.

    I love this book!. It’s about musical words, poems, your roots, competition, your friends, your family, yourself, your maestro, your father and your life.

    What is the essence of living your genius life without experiencing the curse of it.

    A secret that will melt your hopes, heart aches, tremble your bones, or getting out of tune!.

    It is between
    your heart and your craft,
    your destiny or your family,
    your ego and your friends.

    After reading Gitarista, I made a poem;
    Title: Gabs’ Classical Guitar

    Gab bent over his blue guitar,
    A classical of sorts, The day was green.

    Ejan said,” You have a blue guitar,
    You do not play things as they are.”

    Gab replied,”Things as they are
    Are changed upon the blue guitar.”

    Ejan said then,”but play, you must,
    A tune beyond us, yet ourselves,

    A tune upon the blue guitar
    Of things exactly as they are.”

    Reev, ang galing mo!

    Ramdam ko ang eskala ng iyong gitara
    ang mga kalyo nito
    ang pagbuga ng laway ni Maestro

    ang pag-ibig na na-unsiyami
    kompetisyon nauwi sa pandaraya
    ang multo sa likod ng iyong gitara
    ang pagkabigo at pagkabaliw

    Ngunit sa dulo pala ay naghihintay
    ang pagtanggap sa tunay na dahilan
    ang panunumbalik sa yakap ng pamilya
    ang muling pagtugtog ng gitara at
    ang isang matamis na bukas…
