Guitar Playing

I know, I couldn't come up with a more original title to this post. I'm sick ok!!!

So I learnt to play the classical guitar throughout high school, five years to be exact. I won't tell you how many years ago that was but lets just say it was a few and long enough for me to forget most of my learnings having only picked up a guitar once since that time.

Mum suggested that I should start to play again and I was surfing that same brain wave so I took me down to the Guitar Shop on Le Trobe Terrace and bought this little baby:

Ain't she sweet? At $180 she was most likely the cheapest instrument there but I loved her butterscotch colouring and she makes a lovely sound.

So far we can play a few tunes, but I'm mastering Blackbird by the Beatles. Most people don't know it, I didn't. But its a lovely little song that takes massive coordination. Yes I'm saying I'm massively coordinated.

Someday I'll put a little clipping of my skilful rendition on the 'tube' but until that glorious day arrives here's the origin ale.
