I was always super fascinated by guitars and guitar pla
When I got to college, my roomate had a guitar, and she taught me my first two chords, D and C. I can only assume she did this to dissuade me from ever touching it again - I thought my wrist would break on the C, and the D was frustrating because I kept hitting more than the allotted four strings.
The next year, I picked it up again, and this time, she showed me Em. Now that was a chord I could get along with. Play all the strings, Nice "full bodied chord"...I started looking up songs I liked on the internet - finding ones that had the chords written out for me, and I played on the weekends she was home.
Got my first acoustic guitar that Christmas, and I've been playing on and off ever since. I married a guitar pla
I had kids, and got away from it for a bit, but now, it's back again. I sleep with it sometimes, I itch for it...I can just sit for hours, playing nonsense. It's the only therapy I really need, I think. I've been playing for twelve years now, and I have so much still to learn. I don't think my love affair with my guitar will ever end.
