Standard ‘Selfie-with-a-guitar-not-looking-at-the-camera’ shot.

Some days I pick up a guitar and its almost like I’ve forgotten how to play it. I literally cannot string any notes together; nothing sounds right or in key or it sounds out of tune. Im holding a plectrum wrong or not breathing in time. It reminds me of when I would wake up without any memory of the previous day/night - its a really horrible feeling almost like i’ve been robbed of something. I’m having one of those days today. :confused:

Im sorry if now you are getting unwanted attention and comparisons to Ally Sheedy, but theres no denying it…and if I may, I agree with the girls…


#11165

But you’re picking it up…


#11166

Yeah there is that. I don’t time it specifically anymore but I play for around 6 hours a day. Even on the days when I can’t seem to put two notes together, i’ll still play for 6 hours or so - I will just play scale after scale and mess for hours until the workings of a lick or a hook or a riff come through but these off days, its sounds like Ive never played a day in my life and its really quite distressing.

My teacher never ever used to get frustrated when I had an off day, he would simply wait until I nailed it. Those 60 mins a week with him taught me more about patience and concentration than anything or anyone else. It’s funny how those same qualities are also keeping me on the straight and narrow.

Frickin awesome!


#11168

Oh that’s ok, thanks for acknowledging though. I think because of my eyebrows, I’ve always gotten that I look like certain older actresses. Maybe I should have put all my theatrics to good use :wink:
