AREKU of Avalinity live playing a B C Rich Mockingbird guitar

8 years with my favorite guitar (B.C Rich “Mockingbird”)

Today is a special day, so I would like to tell a story about my guitar. My favorite guitar. Which I’ve now had for 8 years. This is the story of how I got it.   I begun playing guitar somewhere in 2007. Using an old Höfner nylon stringed guitar, I learnt the basics. It wasn’t long […]
