    Today I finally decided I'm going to teach

    myself how to play. have learned half a song already by ear.. I've spent the past 2 hours practicing it. Time flies.. I didn't have one OCD thought the entire time.. This is a miracle. I ******* love playing my guitar. It's my new addiction.

    I self taught myself the piano,

    and then ukulele. Now onto guitar! The guitar is actually pretty similar to the ukulele, or for me anyway. It's a lot of fun learning songs. Once you know your chords, you can basically strum along to any songs!

    I love it, and I'm progressing well!

    It's about a month I've started and at the beginning I had difficulties to read the notes, but now I have no problem :) The only downside is that I have to cut my nails short...

    Finger Callouses

    and learning my limitations. I'm pretty musically inclined and am really having some internal issues with the fact that I suck right now! I'm learning the chords for "3 little birds" and really sound bad! I think it will get easier as my fingers callous. Right now...

    Finding My "voice"

    so I've been stuck a bit of a rut for a while, learning chords and then bar chords, which I can mange fine on their own, just not when attempting transitions from open to bar chords :( So me and my teacher decided to leave them for a bit- I get very discouraged if I can't do...

    for some reason I got put in a Guitar 2 class,

    when I haven't even taken Guitar 1. but I've actually leaned stuff. and I live in Nashville so my teacher wants us to make either a rock or country band by the end of the first semester. 🙅
