As My Guitar Vigorously Sobs...

Ok, bad take on The Beatles "As My Guitar Gently Weeps". Everyone heave the collective groan. Sorry. But my guitar is crying. Probably because I'm playing. Nearly a year and I'm still a sorry guitar player. Is it me or is it the music...maybe I'm not cut out to be a classical guitarist. I really am a rock and roll girl. And while I love classical guitar and would love to master it...I'm not so sure I'll get there.

This guitar experience is humbling. I want so badly to be good, but it feels as though it's taking forever to get there.

Maybe one day I can give my friends a mini concert but not any time soon.

You're too hard on yourself. It took me years of decidedly unserious self-teaching to get me to the uhm, level, that I am now. :)

But you can play :) I still look at my guitar and wonder if the kazoo is a better option for me.

I read somewhere that you should learn at least 1 thing every year. You may not ever perfect it, but at least you have the basic skills.

and I'm ready for that concert!
