One of the things he revealed about himself in this interview was his taste in music, and how he picked up the guitar.

I especially like impromptu music. I love the songs that were made in one take instead of being recorded several times. In this era of crossover genres, the desire to do better in music is growing inside me.

He then revealed the reasons why he picked up the guitar in the first place!

I always liked using guitar sounds. And I have always liked the Eagles. If you play the guitar, it’s way easier to write songs because you can carry it along wherever you go, pluck on the strings to create melody lines. Keyboards are difficult to carry around.

I usually work on my laptop but I had this thought that I definitely needed an instrument. It accelerates my work and improves my understanding of chords.

Suga then also cited his collaboration with IU as another reason as to why he decided to begin learning the guitar!

It’s easier to write a song because you can intuitively make a progression and try many different things. During my work on “Eight”, IU had recorded and sent me a song from her phone.

At the time, I couldn’t play the guitar, so we tried to make sure we’re working on the same page when keeping track of each others’ progress. That made me feel the need to learn an instrument.
