Mexican-born guitarist Jesus Aragon’s three kisses

“…When Jesus Aragon is alone and no one is looking, he kisses his left hand with the callused fingers… The calluses on his fingertips are from 30 years of pressing fret boards on his 25 guitars… Then he’ll kiss his right hand with the long fingernails that delicately pluck the nylon strings of his guitar, which these days is usually the Jose Ramirez model that also bears Aragon’s name on a shiny plate at the top….The [third] kiss is for his beloved late mother, Elisa.
