The Acoustic Guitar Project

http://theacousticguitarproject.com

The Acoustic Guitar Project was created to help musicians reconnect to the original moment that inspired them to be singer-songwriters. 
Musicians participating in The Acoustic Guitar Project are given one week to create an original song using only the guitar and recording device provided. There’s no editing on the computer, and they have to get it all in one live take.
