ABC Wed R3: the letter "G"

G is for

I learned to play the guitar when I was on my 3rd year High School. 1993 I guess. At first, i just looking at my schoolmates play then I bought a song magazine that contains a chord chart so that I can start memorizing the chords. A few months later, my parents gave me my own guitar as a birthday present. Since then, I actively learn to play some songs.

I had some hardships. The most common is the aching wrist and corned fingertips. That made me lazy to learn more tricks in playing. Laziness has it toll. As I grow older I cant make use of some basic and even simple techniques to make the sound/song more livelier. I should have been a better guitar player if I only endured such pains :(

Lesson Learned: "You can't teach old dogs new start while it's young".

"Who draws the crowd? Who plays so loud? Baby its the guitar man.
Who's going to steal the show? You know baby its the guitar man."

Have a Great Wednesday to all of us :D

I can find my way around a guitar, limited chords but I can ruin a good tune.

I always wanted to play - still have my old Eko guitar - but I never got past the pain and the laziness! Ah, the story of my life!

You've hit the nail on the head. Learning an instrument well takes lots of dedication and hard work.

What a nice talent to have. You're right, you can't teach on old dogs new tricks so this is something I won't be able to do!
