@Amanda I think once I've mastered the acoustic I want to try my hand at the electric. Smile I've never played an instrument so for me it's extra hard. &my hands are, like, super small. So some notes are harder than others. Laughing

Haha it's funny because my sister asked me why I didn't name the guitar something masculine. But I just think of it as a girl, I guess? scratch
&you're not psycho!! I like your reasoning behind why you named him Percy. Wink

I am also cursed with tiny hands! lol, it's not a curse when you have to reach into small spaces, but playing piano and guitar is quite the challenge. It's one of the things I miss about the viola--they have such skinny necks, it doesn't matter how long or short your fingers are. Smile

How come you don't play viola anymore? &do you also play piano? I would love to learn the piano as well but I have a hard time with having to use both hands at once lol.

&yeah, having small hands isn't always a bad thing. Smile

I played viola in school, and with the move to high school, we went from being able to have seven classes to only six, and I wanted to take a foreign language and guitar, which left no room for orchestra. Sad I really miss it sometimes, but overall, I'm happy with my decision. There's a lot more you can do with the guitar, if you get good. And I'm learning to play piano--I've been taking it for almost a year, now. I actually find it a whole lot easier than the guitar, because of my rhythm-deficient right hand, lol. Smile

@Amanda Oh I see. Well you can always play it on your own. Smile I've actually heard that playing piano is easier to learn than the guitar, even if you don't have a rhythm-deficient hand lol. Very Happy Did you also take classes to learn the guitar? I found some pretty good YouTube videos that are lessons for beginners which I'm using now. If I can't teach myself, I'll move on to classes.

I took a year of fingerstyle guitar, and have been teaching myself chords and strumming techniques sporadically. I'm currently taking a guitar theory class that is helpful for composing music, matching chords to melodies, improvising on the guitar, ect. So the answer is yes and no, lol.
