I've been practicing my new guitar. I guess it's an entry-level model, the Fender DG-7. I bought a teach yourself guitar book, which came with a CD. I've gotten pretty good at the first lesson (E-F-G on the high E string), so I decided it was time to play along with the CD. It was awesome. There's whole band on the CD backing you up. This one song (I'm using the word "song" generously here) was pretty repetitive and I didn't really get the point. But with a band behind me, it made sense. I'm excited to keep going!

[Imported comment* originally authored by Tim.] Woohoo! It helps to not listen to not listen to anything performed by anybody good at guitar. It only depresses you (or at least it did me).

[Imported comment* originally authored by Travis.] Hehe, yeah. I've been listening to some James Taylor (especially Something in the Way She Moves) and thinking, "Someday I'll be able to play this." It's a motivator.
