Merry Christmas, everyone! Or, at least, Merry Christmas to the few who may still read this blog. I am going to try to get more consistent at updating. But I have let several things go by the wayside in recent months, so…
I had a good holiday overall. Woke up with my girl, went to my folks’, came home. Everything went smoothly, which is great.
I had the urge to play my guitar when I got home, so I did until my fingers got too sore to continue. I haven’t really played in months/years, depending on how you look at it. I haven’t played regularly in years, for sure. I think my problem is two-fold. One, I am not as disciplined as I ought to be. Two, I learned to play in a religious context, and nearly all my music is church-based. Which is slightly problematic at this point in my life. What I need to do is find some teach yourself guitar books (because I am at best a basic rhythm guitarist) and song books that are easy and have songs I know already.
It’s that or sell my guitar to someone who will play it regularly. Musical instruments should be played, not stored. Plus, my guitar is a solid top Martin, so not a bad guitar at all.
