I haven't written about my attempts to learn guitar in a long time for a reason - I haven't been using the guitar much lately. It's been literally weeks since I've even picked it up. Why? In part it's been laziness, and in part because I've been very busy with doing stuff around the house. This weekend, something happened that is going to change this.
I was visiting with my parents this weekend and was telling them the story about my friend Dave and how he was going to be playing guitar at a friend's wedding. When I mentioned this, my mom mentioned that she'd always liked the Christmas song 'Oh Holy Night' and she suggested that I learn the song and perform it for the family at Christmas. I agreed. It will be my first performance of a song in front of an audience, even it is just my family (sure to be a friendly audience). I figure the song shouldn't be that difficult to learn. I just need to find some guitar tablature for it, so I can learn it.
I promise not to sing though! :)
