Je sais…the brain sometimes goes to Spanish by default…when it feels like it, to English and when I feel like it, to French! The bull by the horns, but it made me laugh when it came out of the Je ne sais quoi neurons. There it goes again!
I really was not feeling like going back to my guitar class. I did not practice since our Christmas break and every time I looked at it, I felt like putting it under the bed in its case, so I won’t be feeling so guilty. So this morning I had a long time before making up my mind about taking the horns by the bull…yeah, I know…the bull by the horns. So there I went. Everyone was happy to see me…I was so embarrassed, but I mustered my pretty smiley face, took my seat, took forever to take the guitar out, my books, the pen, put the case aside, took out my jacket, changed chairs and finally after all the “I feel so bad” ceremony, I sat. Practiced two chords, the C and the G7…that’s when Mr. Instructor left the advanced group and said to them that he would be back in a while, and I thought, Yes! he is going out! What! He came and sat by me and said that the C chord sounded really good. My fingers started shaking, but within seconds I gained my composure, started playing those chords, and when I thought the waters were safe again, he added the A and A7 chords. Thanks God those are not that difficult!
So went the class, and he went back to the more advanced group…they started playing some country music songs…I asked him if he knew “Friends in Low Places,” sure he did, and with my limited ability to play along, there I was…”where the whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away…” you know the rest.
I had a marvelous time! Need to practice everyday, though, my luck only stretches so far.
Playing my chords and enjoying them too!
