Weirdly Inspiring

They had an acoustic guitar on display today at a Costco... I went up and strummed it a little as it laid. I was going to pick it up but was embarrassed because what if someone saw me? I'm still learning after all. I didn't want to even pretend I knew what I was doing.

I came back to where they had the guitar while I waited for my dad to pay for the groceries. Two guys were standing there, both with the guitars hanging off of them. The guy with the acoustic guitar saw me in the distance and started taking it off. I did my best to gesture "No, no" and then he said, "You try it. I saw you playing before."

I smiled awkwardly and scratched my head and was like, "No, no, I don't really know..." His friend kinda got it and shooed him away lol. Since I was headed in that direction anyway, I just decided to look at the price. A Fender acoustic, but out of my price range, man.

That was pretty embarrassing. I am now motivated to learn to play a full song on guitar just so I can avoid something like that from happening again. :P

Keep an eye on Craigslist. There are guitars on there all the time. Beginner ones around $100.
