Major Fender Bender, Fender Guitar That Is

Here is a question for you. What do you do if you are in the thrift shop and you see a ridiculous deal on this? Well, if you are me, you grab it fast!

Opportunity almost never knocks when you are ready to receive it. It is more like a neighbor, who, having something very exciting to show you, shows up when you are in your robe and slippers. Usually, to seize the opportunity when it comes you have to act very fast. Scott and I have both wanted to learn how to play the guitar for a very long time. We were not actively searching for a guitar, but this one found us. We promptly left the shop with it, went down to the guitar shop and had it re-strung and tuned.

Viola, a beautiful, sweet sounding guitar ready for playing. My first lesson is scheduled for Tuesday, 2:30pm. Wish me luck…

Update: well it seems that Scott is going to take on the leaning of the lessons, I will enjoy listening to him play. There are only so many things we can do in our life and listening to him play will be a good one for me.

Update: well Scott lasted about 4 months and did quite well, but his photography was far more developed than he could ever be as a musician so he is sticking with photography.

  1. Yes, guitar lessons on steel strings hurt, and will hurt until you callous. And yes, you will feel like a child and an idiot in the begining, but hang in there. Once you learn how to follow chord charts, there are fun music books called “cheat books.” Think easy, beginner, better than a lot of what they’ll make you play in class (Kum-bye-a anyone?). Hang in there!
