Well, tonight I do something I've wanted to do for many years but for some reason I've always put other things before it. I'm going for my first lesson at learning to play a guitar. At nearly 50, I guess if I'm ever going to do it, I might as well get with it, huh! ;)
I've played around with drums in the past and also played the violin back in school. Barely remember violin in school for it's been so long, but I do remember I learned to play but didn't do so good mainly because I didn't want to play it, but it was that class or pick some other class that I can't even remember what it was, but didn't want that class. lol
Anyway, like I said, I've always wanted to learn as far back as I can remember. So Wanda went and bought me an acoustic/electric guitar for Christmas. Said I can't have an amplifier for it until I've learned to play. WHAAAAAAT??? lol
But that's alright, for she will have to buy me an amplifier when I learn because then I'll want a new, and even better electric guitar.
Neighbors should really love that! LOL
UPDATE: First lesson is behind me now. Got three words to say!
I'm in T-R-O-U-B-L-E-!-!-! LOL!!!
Alright, honestly, it wasn't near hard and bad as I thought it would be. YET, maybe I should say! I just don't know what else yet is in front of me. But he helped me get comfortable with it and told me what he showed me tonight was the hardest part and once I learn it, I could play most any thing. He showed me C, D and G chords to learn. Hopefully I will have them down by the time I go back for lesson #2 next Wednesday night. But I think "C" is going to give me much trouble. He says just keep trying and it well come to me. But bottom line, I did really enjoy it tonight.
And here it is. :)
