guitar lesson

I gave my first guitar lesson yesterday. I never had lessons, so I don't really know the best way to learn the guitar. I gave him drawings of all the major chords, and we worked on D-A-G so that he can learn to play The Rolling Stones "Dead Flowers."

It was pretty fun watching him learn how to place his hands, and it was interesting to see where my mind raced to as I kept thinking of different bits of information to share.

Everyone else in my family is a teacher, I suppose it's in my blood.

We shall see.

a thinking fishstick

Most days I wake up excited to face the day. I pronounce to myself, "Today will be a productive day." But usually I'm pretty lazy for a good chunk of my day. In a way I'm hoping a blog will be an incentive to not be lazy about the things I want/need to do.
