Playing the Guitar

I've wanted to learn how to play the guitar for a long, LONG, time and now I'm finally turning that dream into a reality.

I have a natural ear for music and my experience of being in orchestra from elementary to high school definitely makes the transition smoother. I printed out some tabs from my favorite music artists like P.O.D., Starflyer 59, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus and Kelly Clarkson and I'm doing my best to move my fingers like the pros do. I'm also learning the theme song from Friday Night Lights, the way Explosions in the Sky plays that song is amazing! Learning how to play the guitar is easy, hard and fun all rolled together. And that's the cool thing about it.

What about you? What instrument have you been yearning to play???

Go ahead ROCK STAR! There is nothing like getting out of our comfort zones and going for it...Maybe I should start singing?...Wellllllllll maybe not, I do know my limitations...I'll leave singin' with Edwinna.

Single, I hope get your chance at the piano. Maybe you could do some Messianic songs. I really like the clarinet's sound in their bands.

Andrea, thanks for stopping by. I have to make my way down there soon.

Jamey, you can always be a karaoke superstar. That's what I am! ;)

Congratulations on actually fulfilling your dream of playing the guitar!!! So many people put off what they really want to do.

I'm not musically-inclined at all so there's no instrument that I've ever wanted to learn to play. I guess if I had to choose, I'd like to play the piano! :-)

Thanks BGG, it feels really cool to say that I'm finally learning how to play thr guitar.

Although you may not consider yourself musically-inclined you are definitely fashion-inclined! Your blog is full of cool style tips. I enjoy it.
