Turntables & Vinyl is usually about my vinyl collecting, but most importantly it is really a documentation of my journey through music. Instead of talking about vinyl today, the discussion is on The Guitar.
I turned 50 a couple weeks ago and one of my goals for this year is to learn to play guitar. Most people when they turn 50, their mid-life crisis is a fancy sports car or some 20 year old young thing that ruins their marriage, but I am not most people (not really most people, but has been known to happen). When my wife asked me what I wanted for my 50th Birthday, I said I want to finally learn to play guitar so I want a guitar.
I sent her a picture of the one I wanted. She replied back with several other possible choices and I said the following…
“…went through the list and still like the one I chose. I love the style and color (it has to look good!!)…”
And she kindly responded back…
“Sounds great! and, of course it has to look good otherwise your awesomeness would overpower it!”
Yes, that is why I love her. Her sarcasm can sometimes out do mine!
I tried learning to play when I was a kid, but I couldn’t understand why I didn’t learn it in 2 days and my frustration level was not manageable. I gave up too easily. I am definitely older, but not sure if I am wiser. However, I think I can patiently work through it this time.
