Of Guitar Lessons....

I remember back in high school when we had our guitar lessons.. It was actually one grading period when we had to learn how to play the guitar and at the end of the quarter, we were asked to play a song that we composed ourselves. 

I had to struggle with the chords, especially shifting from one fret to another, since I really don't know how to play the guitar in the first place. It is actually one of my frustrations up to this day. But anyway, since we were required to play a song that we made ourselves, I thought I should buy my own guitar so I could practice all I want at home. We bought a locally made guitar so it was cheaper than the branded ones but I insisted on getting Gibson guitar strings. I had no idea that getting the strings could make a difference but I thought it played nicely...

We had some exercises where we would learn a song with easy chords to play and our teacher would grade us accordingly. Many of my classmates played the guitar beautifully... you would think they were born to play the guitar. As for me, I had to muster a lot of courage and really practice hard. I didn't get a 1.0 though so you would know how I fared. Even if I didn't ace the guitar lessons, learning how to play the guitar was a great experience for me. From the classes I had, I am able to recognize the chords and can lead the "choir" when we practice for the mass songs.
