For as long as I can remember i’ve always wanted to learn the guitar. The one thing that’s stopped me is simply making the time to learn and practice. I starting getting lessons a few months ago. The lessons have kept me accountable, making sure I get at least a small amount of practice each week. But don’t ask me to play anything, I’m still learning the basics. I think we can all find happiness in something that we are interested in, something we can learn and focus our attention on to take our minds off the craziness of life. It’ll be quite a while before I’ll be playing in front of a crowd. For now, I’ll stick to private backyard gigs without an audience.
