New year

So 2012, besides all the bad things, brought me into music. Learning how to play guitar has been the best thing I've ever done in my life.

The happiness I feel while playing is unbelievable (even though the pain in my fingers).

So I just hope I'll keep progressing and who knows I'll buy an electric guitar some day. For now I'll stick for the acoustic and this year I'll try to learn scales or some useful theory at least.

Changing a string like a king.

Today I changed my first string on my guitar. I was trying to tune the guitar and things went kind of very wrong. But I managed to do it quite well I believe, except for the part of the guitar tuning, that I'll have to take care later.

New week, new life.

Current mood: cheerful

Next week, I'll move to a "new house" in my beloved city of Aveiro. Just beach and guitar for the whole week.

And yes, my F chord skills have increased, but still not perfect. The fight keeps on and after that I'll go master the technique of the B chord.

The F chord...

Current mood: cheerful

The F chord was designated like this probably because the first guy that tried to play it must've got so frustrated that he only could say fuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

This will be the F week. I'll be the F Major chord master by friday.

I'll be going to Vagos Open Air as well. Arcturus. <3

Blue love

I will have to eventually buy a guitar, because the one I've been playing isn't actually mine, so I fell in love with this one:

Ibanez -V72ECE TBS

The price is acceptable, 200€, I won't pay more for a guitar. I know it's an electro-acoustic, but it's like the one I currently "have". 

I have no idea if it's good or not, but the color kills me.

Love and joy

That awesome moment when you actually can play some songs cause you already can play the freackin notes. *.*

Yep, the effort is rewarding.

Portuguese music better for beginners?

Apparently portuguese music is pretty good for those starting to play guitar.

Resting a little bit on those international hits.

Slower... please...

So, now I'm focusing on slowing down my learning rythm.

Just remember, don't try to learn everything at once. xD

Anxiety is the naturalenemy of knowledge.
