musicians institute a great environment to learn and play.
music production school A great resource for students on the current state of the music industry.
Guitars, amps, pedals, cables, strings, etc. are tools that help you say what your music is about.
The bottom line...
Sound must live in our hands! In the 90's I heard Eric Clapton play at an AA concert in California and he performed on another guitarist's gear. He just walked up and the bands guitarist handed him his axe and off he went. He sounded fantastic. It looked like a Les Paul type of guitar and who knows what amp. Eric Clapton sounded like Eric Clapton!
Where does this come from? Your skin, your finger pressure, your vibrato, your emotions, your heart. Oh yes... and hours and hours of practice!
