I wish I could play the guitar. I've tried, but my fingers seem to reject it. I guess I'm stuck playing the piano.
Tiff, you must have a lot of patience for that. I can't really play the guitar at all. I do like to strike the strings with the side of my finger, though. If you do it right, you get some good harmonic sounds. And I like to hit a few notes on either the top or bottom strings. The other strings just get in the way.
Delightful poem, and it has the mood and the muse of learning the guitar! Makes me think of when I was first taking lessons, and how awkward it is at first, but it soon becomes great fun as you develop the skill to play your first songs! It's all downhill after that!
