Chick Rocker

Yes. I am a rock 'n roller.

I have started taking guitar lessons again. And I just ordered a custom-made guitar strap. I am well on my way to becoming fast and famous.

My fingers are sore. Though it's only been my first day, so I'm sure it will get worse. I usually take a lesson about once or twice a year, but I just got it approved from my 'boss' to officially get paid to take lessons and practice, so I'm hoping that is just the motivation I need. It makes sense really, since my job is to lead kids in music and I have a mini band and all that. I should be able to sufficiently lead my band, right? That's the plan anyway.

And hubby is a great guitar teacher. He knows just how patient to be with me as I get really touchy in lessons when I don't learn things immediately. I just want to be proficient NOW! And he's good at giving me enough to work on so I don't get bored either.

But I will make him stay in his room with his headphones on while I practice. That's just a given.

good idea - no one should EVER have to listen to someone practicing any instrument. :)

I always knew you were a rocker at heart! The next Amy Lee, right?? By the way- did you get the rest of the house pics?

Thanks for stopping by my blog, it's always nice to meet new friends.

I like your blog by the way. Good luck with your lessons and thanks for introducing me to the scare your cat page. It should provide hours of entertainment!

No kidding, Heather...lately I've been playing without a pick so that it's pretty muted anyway. I can strum fine to begin with, I just need to work on my chords...

Aren't I though, Shawn!? :) And I have no idea who Amy Lee is...Sorry. I did get your pics...such a cute place! I may have to visit--that is if I'm invited to the wedding?

Andria, I always read your blog but don't always post...I'm a lurker, yes it's true...

Now you can say you get to sleep with your guitar teacher. Hey..I get to sleep with the CEO of MAG. Just stating the facts... :)

Oooo...sounds naughty...

Of course you are invited! We actually just ordered the invites yesterday- and I already have you on my official list :) It would make a great mini-vaca for you and Andy this summer.
Oh- and Amy Lee is the lead singer for Evanescence- rock band that was big a couple yrs back- had some Christian overtones to their music. Anyway- speaking of rock. I saw the Rolling Stones last night! :) Old fogies can rock!!!

Oh yeah...then I know who she is. I liked them. At least until they went all "H311 No! We ain't no f*&^%%n' Christians!" That kind of turned me off...especially after they had proclaimed they were at first to get more sales in that market. Whatever. Like the music, don't like that band. I'm ok with that.

And the Stones? Really? After watching them at the Super Bowl I don't think I could stomach a live show. They reeeaally need to retire!

We were hoping for a couple mini vacations this summer. Sounds good to me!
