A Start To Kill Off The Yearning...

When I was younger, I remembered my dad wanting to send me for violin and piano lessons. I resisted it then. Not interested. I vaguely recalled stints with the recorder and organ during my primary school days, but they left a very "academic" feeling. Not interested.

As I grew older, I realise that I do appreciate music and I would very much like to be able to play a musical instrument. But the rational "Did not want to pick it up when young, now then pick up, a bit too old for it right?" kept coming in the way.

When I was around 14, the saxophone seems cool. At least Kenny G made it seem so. But last time I checked, the lowest-end model still cost over one grand to start with. Recently, been going to places with live bands often. The guitar seems cool and a more viable choice. Given that it doesn't cost alot to start up and it shouldn't be too difficult to find people to learn from and to practise with.

An hour ago, I digged out a guitar from the stores, long chucked aside by my brother. Its been ten years now, other than slight patches of fungi and "discolouring" of the strings. It seemed alive.

Just learned how to position my fingers for the three basic chord, G, C and D major here. Its a start and I think its gonna happen this time.

That's a good start alright. You can probably play a few tunes with those 3 chords.

hey, a guitar is really nice... kinda feel that when guys are able to play a guitar, it kinda wins some girls over... or maybe its just me feeling that way, haha... but, it never hurts to try and learn new things =) and the guitar is pretty easy to pick up... good luck!
