November 10, 2005
So it's just been a few days since I got my guitar (and as I type this my fingers are sore from practicing) and the good news is that I think I like it. Phew.
It's hard work as the first couple of chapters of my book are all about chords and they are both not easy on the finger tips nor the on the ear just yet. F is an absolute bitch, my fingers just don't reach like that!
Leave the chords section (I will keep practicing them), I got onto some simple single finger melodies. Why couldn't they start with this stuff! I can now play a decent little rendition of "Old MacDonald" Rock and roll!!!
Anyway, here's a picture of my new toy (and as usual, Maggie crept in the shot)
It's a Vintage V800, as with all these things, it'll take me a while to get used to it and I really have no idea if it is a good guitar or not, but it certainly sounded nicer and looked nicer than some of the cheaper ones in the shops and with a bit of advice this is the one we went for.
