Holy shit......., the guitar man. I've been teaching myself to play the guitar for some weeks now and it has been very joyful. I'm slowly feeling my fingertips getting harder and harder. I'm finding it more enjoyable than playing the piano. Ever since I've lost a lot of use in my right arm, I had to give up playing the piano and only ever listen to my music. I would do research on who ever I listened to, but it wasn't as enjoyable as playing an instrument. But now I have a guitar to play so that I can get back into having fun. I always had this thought of making music but I never wanted to get serious about it. I want to make music for fun. The legendary Nile Rogers has been catching my eye as far as somebody that I'll look up to. Between him Zach Wild, Carlos Santana, Brian Mays, and Jeff Williams. I would love to have a mix skill of Nile's and Jeff. But like everyone else, it takes time to develop skill like that.
I'm having so much fun with chord progressions but sadly it's very difficult to do I it with only four strings. Nonetheless, I'm learning how to strum chords that don't need strings 5&6. Recently I had a convo about The Movement of the Odyssey over in the café and the guitar work for the 1st and 2nd movement are beyond amazing. I like to tell myself in all the things I want to do in Life 'One Day' because it insinuates that it will happen in time rather than 'Some Day'. Which insinuates that it may or may not happen. But one day I will play guitar like it's the end of the world.
This seems like a very cool and fun beginning. I would like to set goals and future things to do. In all honesty, I'm thinking about what could happen in the future that I could do one day. It would be fun to write score for RWBY and write themes and score for RvB. As I'm finding my skill set it feels as though I'm developing a cross mix between Trocadero and Explosioin the Sky even though I aspire to be like Niles and Jeff.
But anywho, I'll see y'all 'round the site.
