I just picked up my guitar for the first time in months. It feels so good to be able to express myself through music again. One of my favorite things to do is improv some blues. I’m not the best at it, but it’s nice. You hear people like B.B. King pour their soul into their instrument. I want to be that talented.
I’m working on House of the Rising sun, American Pie, and Yer So Bad.
I’m completely self taught, but I think it’s time to get some lessons. My lack of confidence is only hindering my abilities. Though, when I took the beginning guitar class, my teacher told me to go get a guitar. He believed that if I worked on it, I could be good at the guitar. I took that and ran. I now own five guitars. One semi-hollow electric, one solid body electric, one accoustic-eletric, one accustic, and one cigar box guitar. Leave it to me to buy this many guitars without knowing how to play well.
I want to be able to play like Randy Rhoads, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Kirk Hammet one day.
