I can’t think of a single reason not to try, so I bought this thing Wednesday afternoon while in the city…
The rocker-fella who helped me pick one out was nice enough not to suggest I need the most expensive thing in the shop. Instead, he directed me to a beginner guitar and taught me how to shop for guitars (“look it over”).
Jeff asked my determination level, on a scale of 1-10. I said, “10.” My man smirked. I didn’t think his smirk was funny, but he knows his wife well.
But, see, the thing is…I am determined. I’m always determined at the moment that I want to learn something new. It’s just that I’ll either reach a point where I say, “there, I did that” and never pick it up again (scuba diving. I’m not really into pitch dark, deep underwater. It’s death-defying, so, yipes, been there, done that.), or, I may dabble in it now and then if I kinda-sorta liked it (quilting is an example of that, for me…by the way, that’s my Grandma’s quilt she hand-stitched for her wedding over 65 years ago under the guitar. love it!).
It’s always worth trying, because occasionally, rarely, something captures me so solidly that I don’t ever put it down. Photography is one of those for me. And blogging.
So, why not try out guitar playing?
Maybe it will stick and I’ll become a guitaring gal, taking it everywhere. Just think how romantic it would be to strap a guitar to my canoe and sing by a campfire on the sandy riverbank.
Or maybe it will just be a fine-looking wall ornament. I’m okay with that.
So now I’m curious about you. What new thing are you trying out? I might need to pick that up, too.
