My New Baby...

Thursday, March 08, 2012

About a year ago, the beautiful Tama guitar that my Dad bequeathed to me started to separate at the neck, cracking at a spot where a screw had been put in to attach the strap to.

The quote to fix it made me gulp. Yes, I told the luthier, I will get it fixed. Just not right now.

On Tuesday, I got an "interim guitar"--and am completely thrilled with it.

Pretty, isn't it? And it sounds nice, too. The action is low, so even though I have practised for three days in a row (and tonight it was for well over an hour), my fingers are sore, but not bloody... and that's a good thing!

I also started guitar lessons with all three of our boys yesterday. The younger two are VERY enthusiastic. The older one... I think he is disillusioned by the amount of work involved to sound half decent. Sigh.

Also, I was quite happy that I had not forgotten nearly as much as I thought I would in a year. If I keep practising regularly, it shouldn't be long before I can actually play, like, real songs and everything. :-)

How has your week been going, friends?

  1. Nice! I started practising piano again and oh, I'll never be good, but I enjoy it.

  2. It is beautiful! And I'm so glad the boys are learning to play. Hopefully Jude will get into it more. It is so nice to be able to make your own music on a mobile instrument. Someday he will appreciate that more.
    Love you!

  3. Angela - Oh, you never know, with enough practice, you could be good... but I guess that depends on what you mean by "good". I am just hoping to achieve some level of unconscious familiarity with the guitar, so I can use it to lead worship with, not to become a virtuoso guitarist.

    Mom - I hope so! (About Jude.0
