The guitar that caused so much angst


But will bring lots of joy! Choosing this was no picnic. I struggle with wanting quality items but not wanting to pay too much. It's also hard to know how much to invest in a hobby that right now you're not good at. I think I made a good decision though. I love the look of it and enjoy playing on it. The small red one is Brendan's. Isn't it cute? It's a mini strat. :) It fits him really well. He loves to mess around with the knobs and try different sounds. I have already had to tell him 20 times to turn it down. Can you imagine the next 10 years? I think we will need to finish off the room above the garage for him.

I have seen progress but it is coming slowly. I have read different tutorials on-line and it seems like this is normal. It is a slow start and it's hard to keep up the motivation to play when you sound so bad. I just have to push through and keep practicing. They also recommended listening to great guitar music so I bought Brad Paisley's new cd, Play. It's mostly an instrumental album with lots of great guitar music. It has been inspiring to listen to.

Awesome Angie! They look great. Good job pushing through when you know what you want. I know it can be frustrating when the process is slow, but you definitly have the motivation!
