Here's to......me

Yep, I'm raising a glass.....to MYSELF.

Tomorrow I start my Guitar 1 class at Old Town.

I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. Got my official song book, got VonDad's wicked awesome guitar all newly strung and tuned and shined up and stuff.

Don't got? The ability to read music. Or follow directions very well.

But I have drive, determination, and guts.

And, I'm cute.

excellent. we should jam.

And you don't need to read music. Learn to read tabs.

Von said...

tabs? like on excel spreadsheets?

Brando said...

Good for you, Von. I always wished I'd learned how to play.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Von said...

Well, Brando, the beauty of moving to Chicago? OLD TOWN IS IN CHICAGO.

We'll have a big silly bloggy click at Old Town.
IT'll be AWEsome.

And you don't need to read music. Learn to read tabs.

Or just play bass.

This sounds like a plan to get Maggie Gyllenhaal in the sack.

Why not? You think Maggie wouldn't like Von?

Dragon-King Wangchuck said...

Thanx zrm. Here's the thing:
Drive, determination, guts and cute. Who could read that post and not flash to Stranger Than Fiction?

El Snacktator said...

El is sure Maggie would like Von, but that's not the point... Von is TAKEN!

Jennifer said...

Well??

How was it?!?!

Von said...

Von is NOT taken.
It was meh. I couldn't translate in my brainz how to read the chord on the board and make my fingers do it.
The teacher is great. He helped. I asked people, I think I get it now. I need to practice practice practice. I WILL play guitar.
The first song we played "Jambalya" by Hank Williams had my full first name in it. That's cool.
I have a little blood blister on my finger. I'm die hard, bitches.

Von is NOT taken.

El's heart is broken...

Also, a little superglue on the fingertips goes a long way to protecting and hardening up those delicate pads.
