Daily Prompt: Fret


“Nice fret.”

“Do you think so. I thought it might be a bit flashy.”

“No, not at all. Ok, it depends on the music I suppose. My player is more into the mainstream sort of stuff. Nice and slow and relaxing. I suppose your musician is more the rough type: dirty fingernails, scruffy and uses the fret to hold his joints whilst playing.”

“Do you mind. Just because yours is a wooden lookalike, it does not give you the right to look down on me. and be insulting.”

“Just remember to get your strings washed after the performance.”

“I find your colours boring and nothing special. I am sure your audience falls asleep when listening to the music. I impress them all with my red, white and blue and you can even rap to my music. I have a unique fret.”

“Yes I am sure you do, shame you will have a short life.”

“I will live forever.”

“I don’t think so. The last three coloured guitar only appeared once.”

“What are you talking about.?”

“See for yourself the piles of broken frets let over from the guitars looking like a flag. The player gets carried away and gets high on his joint. The big final to the concert is to throw the guitar on the ground and jump up and down on it.”

“But then I will die.”

“At least your last performance will not be forgotten.”

  1. Fret not ye fretters. There are so many ways to fret. The important this is not to let the fretting get the better of you. I have to admit, I never stuck a joint into the strings and frets, though. Too messy and you might wind up with burn marks!

    • I must admit I did not know that the end part of the guitar, or stringed instrument, is a fret. Even Mr. Swiss did not know that expression, although he is basically Swiss German speaking. I have seen all sorts of things hanging on guitar strings.
