now, i had been taking a break from my guitar because i randomly found the thumbs on each of my fingers twitching... meaning hey, maybe i should chill out. so i did. but this weekend i got tired of chilling out. originally i said i would wait until i got lessons and could be with a person that knows what they're doing so i could ask questions and be told the right posture and how to hold the guitar and strings with my left hand. WELL, guess what? I'm briizzzzoke. So, instead i'm just gonna spend a little less time each little practice YouTube/internet/library book session I do and try to listen to my body and watch for bad stuff. Also, I need to get some upper body strength. Haha.
So, because I can't get the song out of my head, I've decided the first song I'm gonna learn how to play is that song you see a couple posts below. Mmhm. And this nice white man is gonna teach me :)
My first worry was, "Oh no, I don't have a CAPO" *signal young Macaulay Caulkin face in Home Alone after he smacks himself in the face (with the aftershave?) in the mirror* But guess what y'all? The internet is sometimes grand, and i found out i can make one with a pencil and some rubberbands here. Great. I started learning it. I'm actually probably trying to do entirely too much at once considering I'm learning how to play the chords and the songs at the same time and i don't even quite have calluses yet but it's all good. Haha. So yeah. Look out for that.
And maybe after I learn how to play it well enough I'll have the balls to post a video. But that would involve me singing, which is a whole 'nother beast 'cause I ain't nobody's Hayley Williams. Maybe it'll just be my own "private joy" ;)
Anywho! This is the happy post I had figured would come along at the end of that other entry. Sure did :)
