Guitar Lesson

I had my first re­al gui­tar les­son last night. I feel much more sat­is­fied with this teacher than I ever did tak­ing class lessons at Notre Dame or the few crap­py lessons I took in Connersville. Since I can read mu­sic [or at least, since I used to be able to read mu­sic] we were able to cov­er four pages of the in­tro­duc­tion gui­tar method book in the half hour. I learned 6 notes and the first three strings of three chords. This first book on­ly cov­ers the top of the fret­board and the sub­se­quent books move down the neck and give a se­lec­tion of gui­tar styles so a stu­dent can pick up some va­ri­ety.

I have to buy a gui­tar case and new strings. I knew both of these but was un­able to man­age it over the week­end. So tonight I’m go­ing to hitch on over to Guitar Center and spend some cash I don’t have so that my gui­tar is pro­tect­ed.

I’m glad to be learn­ing some­thing again. Actually, I’m glad to be learn­ing any­thing. I need to have a con­stant goal of self-im­prove­ment for var­i­ous rea­sons; the ma­jor one be­ing that I get bored with my life if it on­ly con­tains the same thing. I hate be­ing bored when I have free time. I have rec­on­ciled my­self to of­ten be­ing bored whereev­er I work, but if I don’t have some­thing to do with my free-time I get bat­ty. This is prob­a­bly why I don’t have ca­ble, as any time I watch the Idiot Box, I get bored out of my gourd. Thus, gui­tar lessons. I’ll stop ram­bling now.
