I don't know if it is a mid-life crisis or an identity crisis, but today I picked up one of these.
Why, you ask?
Because I am celebrating, not having to pay the tax man $6k big ones. Actually, I have wanted to play the guitar since I was in college. A friend from church said she would teach me, so why not. Life is short you should do what you want to do. There is justification for you!
It came with a free instructional DVD and I found a great website that has lots of free lessons and free music.
So far I can play 3 chords pretty well and one not so well at all. My fingers are sore, but the DVD says I will develop calluses pretty quickly and that will make it easier to play. Great, calluses on my hands and on my feet. I will probably also have to cut off my last fingernail. My beauty will be beyond compare.
EB would like to know when I will have time to play the guitar. That is a very good question. I figure at the rate I am going on my job search I will have the whole summer. Maybe I could start sleeping less or practice while I help B with his fractions. Maybe strum a few chords while I whip up a souffle'.
The puppies have to go home tomorrow and there is going to be one very sad boy. I am going to be just a bid sad myself.
