So I’m still keeping myself occupied by learning to play the guitar that I first picked up in February. I really like practicing, probably because I’m teaching myself songs that I enjoy and actually want to play. But also because I just really like learning new and relatively difficult things. I like feeling like I accomplished something.
So far I can play a few songs semi-decently:
Wonderwall – Oasis
Turn the Page – Bob Seger
Hurt – Johnny Cash (though this one kinda sounds like crap)
If I Die Young – The Band Perry
Weak in the Knees – Serena Ryder
Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream – Pete Seeger
And currently-in-progress are:
Maps (Acoustic Version) – Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Head Over Feet – Alanis Morissette <– ridiculously hard, fyi
I use YouTube videos and chords & tabs from ultimate-guitar to teach myself and it’s been working out alright so far.
One of these days when I grow courage and a set of balls I’ll have to make a video and post it. Until then you can just imagine me being an awesome guitarist.
Essentially though my guitar playing is just an excuse for me to sing. Singing while strumming a guitar seems a lot more purposeful than just belting out tunes while sitting in the living room.
