As previously reported, I’m now taking guitar lessons (electric) and I’m past the fingers-hurt stage to proud-of-my-callaced-fingers stage. It didn’t take quite as long as I thought it would, so I’m happy about that.
Motiviation comes from videos like these that I post from time to time. This guy, if he’s not already signed, could be in any band he wanted to be in. I have much more respect for guitar players now that I’m trying to be one myself. It would be cool to jam like this someday, but I have a lot of practicing ahead of me before I’ll be able to.
