My Guitar

Have I told you guys that I've been trying to play the guitar?

Keyword "trying".

I got it at a charity auction for only $50.

It's a classical guitar by Takamine.


It has some beautiful painting around the sound hole...

And it has a gorgeous head and tuning keys.I haven't even come close to be able to play anything except for some chords.

Hi MJ,

When I was much younger, like 40 years ago, I took guitar lessons for five years. At the end of my trial, I had achieved the ability to pick out "Twinkle, twinkle little star." Slowly. And not all that well. That was the end of my rock star aspirations. I wish you several magnitudes of better success in your musical endeavors.

Thanks, I don't expect to be a superstar, but being able to strum a bit would be nice...

You got a good deal on your guitar, good luck on learning how to use it. Just remember to make it fun and not to put a lot of pressure on yourself.

Thanks for the luck - I know I'll need it if I ever want to learn anything lol. I'm self-teaching, so there can't be too much seriousness in it anyway.
