Many of my friends (girls especially), have been playing guitar pretty well these days, and I'm envious of them.
I've bought myself a keyboard last autumn at a car-boot sale, but to date, I can only play #1) fur elise, #2) mary has a little lamb, #3) birthday song. Say what???
Can you spot my 8 pounds keyboard? :p
I don't think that I've got that much talent, or determination in playing a keyboard, so, I was thinking of giving up. Then, my term-ly allowance came in, and I've bought myself a brand new guitar online, after giving it a long hard thought.
On the way back home last Wednesday, I was talking to my friend about the guitar that I've bought, and how glad would I be if it came today. So, when I opened the front door, I saw a big box at our living room. I knew instantly that it was mine! I jumped, and laughed hysterically, while hugging the big box, and my friend can only shake her head.
I've told you that it's big. :p Imagine me hugging this box.
It's such a beauty, and I love it already!
It came with a gig bag, and some other accessories, so it was a really good bargain.
I've got one formal report waiting to be handed in, that midnight, so I didn't have the time to waste to adore my guitar. However, once I've submitted the report at around 9 that night, I went straight for my guitar and started strumming randomly. I have no basic in playing a guitar at all, so buying an Ibanez was driven more by envy, and the fame that might come after becoming a guitar pro later. *grins*
I played before I went to bed on Wednesday, and played again before my class on Thursday. Well, you can't really call it playing, for all I do was learning the four basic chords for the song "Fall for you" by Secondhand Serenade.
I was a bit feverish that day, so I went to bed pretty early, and had planned on not waking up until morning. However, I was woken up in the middle of the night by the sound of someone taking out my laundries from the washing machine. So. I got up and switched on the light. Upon seeing my guitar next to my bed, I went back to bed, and started strumming again, forgetting all about my laundries inside the laundry bag. :p
I'm starting to get the hang of it, and I've this funny thought that I might just have talent in learning how to play a guitar. Haha :p
I'll practice every day, and might just do a youtube cover, and be as famous as Kinna Granis in the future.
Dream on, baby!
