La La time...

What is la la time u ask?...

Well its that time in everyones life when we all test the musical geniuses in us...(rather the existence of it!!)

Ahem!..so I finally started with my first guitar class last week.....and I made sure I kept reinforcing to Hubby dear atleast a few weeks before the class that the world would now see a new "prodigy".....and yes I genuinely believed I was one!!

And yes I entered my first class with a list in my mind of all the songs I wld learn to play in less than a month....prodigy that I was!!

I have been practising and trying to play for 4 -5 days now....And what have I been playing?

Well...no not hotel california....but "do re me fa..." for almost 4 days now...and er....am "almost" getting there!!...

My fingers are hurting...the shoulder is paining and hands are numb....and "Do re me" doesnt sound anything like it yet....:-(

But well er....who says prodigies were born in 1 day....am getting there....."almost":-))

I can play the jaws tune on a guitar... you know, when the shark's inching over to eat the guy? Goes like this, with any two notes.
Twing twing twing,
twing twing twing,
(faster) Twing twing twing,
Twing twing twing
(even faster) Twing twing twing twing twing twing twing twing THWACK!


I have been playing the clarinet for about seven years now, and did dabble with the violin a bit.

I think it's great that you're learning to play the guitar. I LOVE the guitar, but sadly don't play.

All the best,one day we could hear you playing guitar.Dont worry Persistence pays...
When I was young I wanted to learn guitar but the problom I had to face was that Guitars are made for right handers.So I gave up my idea.
Thank you for the visit.
