So, as the title says, I have the guitar that I ordered, and have been practicing with it for a few days. I have lessons on Sunday, and am looking forward to them quite a lot. The gentleman with whom I was corresponding via email is as much of a geek as I am, and very much into Linux and the open source movement as a whole, so we’ll have a lot to geek out about (which means we’ll have to force ourselves to focus on the lesson, but hey, it’s all fun stuff.)
I might go ahead and get a Les Paul style guitar as well, because it’s supposed to be easier on the fingers. I know I said that the Zeny would be the last big purchase, and I’d start holding back funds for the Trike. But in this case, I really want to learn both styles of guitars, and the price on the Les Paul is really good. So, I want to take advantage of it while I can.
I’ve been having fun, and a bit of finger pain, learning the chords, although I have a long way to go before I can play America’s Sister Golden Hair. It’s a song that I’ve always enjoyed, and would like to learn to play properly. There are others as well, but this is the first one that I want to learn. I know that it’s considered an ‘expert’ level song, so I’ll take the challenge and run with it. I’ll play the music, someone else can sing it. 😛
Thanks for reading,
