Me and my Guitar

My Guitar


After many years of longing and watching others, I finally got my own guitar…and I’m actually learning how to play it.  I always knew that playing guitar took practice and discipline.  Being a fortunate person I have known a lot of talented musicians over the years.  Music has always meant a great deal in my life but until I took singing lessons, I didn’t realize that I could have the concentration needed to actually learn.  I admit, I am extremely distractible.

Playing and learning an instrument has made me feel more confident.  I don’t really know why.  Perhaps it’s just that I’m believing in myself more.

Learning how to be loud has been a big help.  Realizing this came when I was taking singing lessons.  Growing up I was consistently told to be quite, and to sing and play guitar or any other instrument you have to be loud.  That’s the whole point, making noise.

So off I go, learning chords and songs and being loud.  Perhaps you’ll get to hear me someday.
