New task intro time! (slightly over 1 “one post a week” promise, but who’s counting? Just me then.)
I’ve owned some sort of guitar from around the age of 11. I learned a few chords, tried to a few songs I liked, but the trouble was…I was never any good. Although being a leftie is no longer such a great excuse (thanks a bunch, Jimi), the stubbiness of my fingers meant I just couldn’t cut it. So, many,many years after my first real six-string, it was becoming apparent that “Rock Star” was not going to make an entry onto the old CV.
..But I would love to play an instrument. I’m thinking, the Blues may at least give me a shot. “Just Three Chords and the Truth”, right? Easy to learn, hard to master, but I’m not really looking to master anything, just play a few things that sound….o.k.
I have a “How to play Blues” book purchased, so all I need is some bourbon and a huge family tragedy and I should be sorted.
