I bought myself a cheapo acoustic guitar a month or two ago, because I'm pretty sure that if you live in Austin for more than a couple of years, and the cops find out that there's no guitar in your house, they throw you out of town. So, it turns out that these things have more strings than I'm used to, coming from the banjo. That's really confusing. Anyway, I somehow wound up fussing with the thing for an hour or so tonight, and I think I'm almost at the point where I can sort of remember a couple of chords, but not yet at the point where I can make my fat fingers only hit one string at a time, and then not always the one I was really shooting for. I'd better figure out a way to not completely suck at this before too long, or I might not be able to vote here or something next year.
(Because everyone and their sister in Austin is in a band, and probably plays guitar. See, it's kind of like a joke, there. Only, not funny.)
Did I mention that I uninstalled World of Warcraft last week? Yeah. I got shit to do, man.(March 26, 2005 11:48 PM)
