    Wonders If I Can Do It.

    I've been told that the guitar or bass are the only two instruments that hurt when you learn to play them.   I already play the piano and feel my fingers are flexible however, the way you contort your fingers when playing the guitar scares me.  I want to learn but...

    I taught myself how to!

    I play acoustic, electric, and bass! Took me about a year, but I'm reaping the fruits of my labor now.

    I Don't Own One...

    I don't own one... I've never picked up one before in my life... Right now though, I really wish I could play... Just so I could say I accomplished something that I never thought I could do.

    I Wish I Had Just Have The Talent Of

    I wish I could play just half as good as some of my favorite guitar players. Like Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan and countless others. Man some of those guys just make it look so easy. I have been playing for quite a few years and no way near that kind of talent.

    ...But I've Always Had An Excuse

    What the excuses were changed from year to year and sometimes day to day. For the longest time the excuse was that my guitar was terrible. (It was; so frustrating to play that I learned a lot about what I like in a guitar by complaining instead of practicing.) After those...

    About 11 years ago, I bought an Ovation guitar.

    I tried learning how to play it while I was on business trips and had nothing better to do in the hotel room. I didn't get very far. Learned to strum in a rythm and memorized a few chords. Then I relocated to NJ and put the guitar in the basement. Now that I'm working away...

    Wanted to pick the guitar again this week but crashed my mountian bike, flew of the trail landed in the bottom of a ravine. Needless to say my hands are mangled and I won't be able to play for a few weeks. H.H.
