Episode 18: Music Under Tension

For a guitar to make beautiful music, its strings have to be tight. When a musician makes the strings tighter or looser, it changes the pitch created when the string is plucked. If a string is far too loose, all you will hear is a disappointing “thwump.” Life is like that, isn’t it? I may wish for an easy life, for a tension to be resolved or for a challenging circumstance to go away. But I wonder how much music is made in a vacuum, or if harmony happens without work. As a musician, I know the answer—none at all.
