Rhapsody in a G-String!

If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll recall I took up the guitar a while ago, So, here’s how I’ve been getting on. In fact, you can see and hear for yourself by clicking on the video link below.

And here’s my teacher, Steve from the guitar shop – Luis J Customer Service next to Aurora Massage in Malaga market.  One thing about markets – they often have more to offer than the shops, ey!

Steve - guitar teacher

Bloody great feeling!

I always thought I was musically challenged; now I realise it’s all about putting the time in. After battling locked-in syndrome, that’s one thing I knew how to do! Hours n hours that took.
But learning the guitar came a lot easier – I did it in a week (4 cords). Apparently, 4 cords can play a thousand songs. Now all I gotta do is learn ‘em so I can have a little fun!

I also find since I’ve been playing I’m calmer in the mind. A strange peace has come over me. Making music helps take my mind off all the suffering I’ve seen and memories of my stroke. It’s a special place where I can slip away.

Before my stroke, I always dreamed of playing the guitar. The stroke has made me learn because now I don’t take life for granted….now, I’m doing shit!!! While I can, ey!!!
Play you my first song next. Then the Big One – gonna team up with my mate in Boston – Valerie Giglio – can’t wait to play together (pardon the pun!!!!)

Try try try at things….Life keeps surprising me whenever I do, Imagine what I could have done at school if I’d wanted – and if there were no girls to distract me!!!
I could have been Dr Coghlan! Next!!!
