New hobby

Thursday, March 11, 2010

I am going to learn to play the guitar! I have always secretly wanted to learn. A few weeks ago I said something to Jules and he said let's go and buy you a guitar! (He is always gung-ho about anything like that.) I told him I didn't want to buy one until I knew I really liked it.

A friend at church has a son who really wanted to learn too so they bought him a nice one. And guess what ... he has never used it. So he has graciously given it to me!! CAN YOU BELIEVE MY LUCK? I am super excited!! I have been cruising the net looking for guidance and have found a few sites that are giving online lessons. I am also going to check on Netflix and see if they have any instructional DVD's. I only know a few people who play, one of which is our minister and the other is an ex. I don't really want to ask either one of them!

Wish me luck!! I will report progress soon!!

    When I first saw the title of your blog today, I thought you said New HUBBY. I was floored! You always talk about him as being wonderful. I thought, oh no, what happened. Once I stared reading I went Ohhhhhhh, hobby, not HUBBY...
    Must be a Monday!

    Awesome!! And it must be written in the stars to have landed a guitar of your own! My Hubs plays bass (for over 30yrs) he can play most all instruments but I doubt he would have any advice except practice, practice, practice! oh and keep those fingers limbered up, lol. He was self taught so it can be done!
    Soo Cool =] Just like with anything just dont give up and it will happen!

    Oh wow, good luck lady! I like how the first sentence surprised me, lol! You never alluded to the fact that you liked the guitar from your posts and stuff so this is actually a nice little surprise! I think if you put your mind to it, you'll do great! Plus, it's not a bad skill to learn at all! ;)

    How wonderful! I also have always wanted to learn, and DH gave me a guitar for my last birthday. It's one of the best things I've ever done for myself. Yep, there are a LOT of great sites on the internet.

    Have fun!
