Thanks to everyone who pitched in for the guitar. I have thanked many of you, but probably not all of you. As many of you know, I have been playing guitar off and on for ten years now. I have gotten to the point where if you give me a song to play, I can sit down and learn it within a day. However, to me this is akin to reading a book by memorizing word shapes and sounds and not understanding that each word is made up of letters and are put together using grammar. So I am setting out to learn the letters and grammar of music, or rather the language of music. It’s a challenging goal, but I think it will make me a much better player in the long run. Additionally, I need to work on my playing technique. Like the fine instrument it is, the Epiphone requires only a delicate touch to play. I am used to my acoustic, which requires an over-firm fingering of the fretboard to make music. Anyway, the next time you see me, I will be a much stronger player.
