Who knew you could lose yourself in practicing? When I tried Piano… I couldn’t sit still for more than 10 minutes and I like piano. I hated the teacher though… God she was an unpleasant person.
Last night, I just lost track of time while I was just working on simple stuff at the beginning of the primer.
I’m not even to the level of sucking yet, but I’m having a damn good time practicing the guitar.
My finger tips hurt and I don’t mind.
I’ve even been able to play 8 notes of Ode To Joy in a recognizable way. (Told you I wasn’t yet to the level of sucking) But damn! I’m enjoying myself.
If I’m enjoying myself half as much in a month I’m going to be a happy guy.
I’m still working the chords and when I’ve had enough of that I’m trying to pick out the notes of some of the more recognizable songs in the primer.
Yeah it’s not the “Traditional” way of learning music but each day the chords sound better and the notes ring clearer… Even if it sounds like I’m a 78 record being played at 33 1/3.
There are a whole bunch of young folks out there who are saying what??
For those of us that know what I’m talking about… You get the picture.
I’m not close enough to Geddy Lee or The Edge to even breathe a single molecule of the same air.
But someday before I die I’m hoping that I can play some music on my beauty that actually sounds like music.
Only time and practice will tell.
In the mean time… I’m having a good time and well the guitar doesn’t seem to mind.
I guess there’s some truth to you’re never too old to try something new.
