Way back in highschool, I attempted to learn on how to play the guitar. My older brother has an old guitar with two strings missing but I was able to replace them by purchasing new ones from a nearby shop. The strings I got were not as good as the ones seen at Thomastik guitar strings but they worked just fine for a beginner. For days, I tried to memorize the proper way of positioning my fingers on the chords but to no avail. I even asked my brother to teach me but I eventually got tired and gave up the idea. It was harder than I thought.
You could just imagine how amazed I was when my younger brother was able to learn how to play the guitar on his own. Perhaps it’s because he loves music more than I do so he learned fast. For now, I am contented listening to him play with the chords than learning to do it myself. Maybe someday, I'll get the hang of it, too.
