Niall Horan’s trusty guitar
Niall Horan cradles his guitar when he watches the television.
The former One Direction star feels so comfortable with the musical instrument that he admits he likes to relax with it.
In a video posted to Spotify’s Facebook page, he said: "I always feel more comfortable with the guitar in my hand. I don’t know what it is but even when I’m watching the TV, I have the guitar in my hand. It just feels right.
"By the last tour we did, the last stadium tour, I ended up playing in 20 or 24 songs. I was basically part of the band; I had the whole microphone [headset] thing and I’m really looking forward to putting the band together, the whole idea of rehearsing, focusing on the guitar and how the band sounds. If people are spending the money to come watch you, you want to give them your money’s worth. And I stick by that and I always will."
Meanwhile, the ‘This Town’ hitmaker previously confessed he is going to do a "disappearing act" over the festive period to spend time with his family and friends.
He said: "I’m gonna head home and chill out as it has been hectic the last few months. Looking forward to getting home home at Christmas. I haven’t been home since last Christmas so I miss everyone and hopefully this year I’ll get to spend some quality time with family and friends.
"I really do wish I could spend more time at home but with Ireland as small as it is, I sometimes struggle to relax so fingers crossed because I miss that place a lot. After Christmas, I’m gonna fall off the face of the earth and do one of my disappearing acts. I want to come up with more song ideas and get back in the writing zone. So have a lovely Christmas and happy New Year and I’ll see ya in Feb. (sic)"
