new best friend
Hello, can you believe that it's almost Easter?! I haven't bought a guitar yet but a friend has been kind enough to lend me the first guitar he saved his paper round money up for 36 years ago! I'm terrified of damaging it as it has a lot of sentimental value. In the 7 days it's been in my possession I've quickly made friends with it and have learned enough chords to be able to play raspberry beret by prince (apart from the bridge - need a few more for that bit). So I have my second lesson tonight and I'm really looking forward to it. I can see how this could easily become an obsession with guitar tabs for lots of songs being widely available on the web. It's great fun trying to play and sing along. I think I'm driving Mr P round the bend a bit! As for my fingers, they are completely numb on the ends! And my fingerprints have gone!!! I can now commit the perfect crime with my left hand!!! I've had a few blisters but it's not as bad as I thought it might be. You know what they say... no pain, no gain!!
We have the long weekend to look forward to this week with the Friday and Monday bank holidays! Yay! Hope you're all having a good week! :-)
