Hire Guitar No. 2

Firstly, D Major is no longer a bitch... D Major is now my bitch. It is C Major that is now the bitch.

*Sigh* I'll get their eventually.

After my first lesson I was asked to pick a song to learn, after much deliberation (a whole weeks worth) I finally settled on Hurt by Nine Inch Nails. I am however using the Johnny Cash version to learn by as it's a whole lot easier to hear what I'm supposed to be playing.

This all brings me to the fact that now I'm playing something I know well, it's sounding somewhat shitty. After having the opportunity to play another guitar today I don't really thing Hire Guitar No. 2 is up to the task. I am relieved though, as I had reached a point last night where I was beginning to think it was me... I sucked and I wasn't getting any better. But no, poor Hire Guitar No. 2 has seen better days.

My days with Hire Guitar No. 2 are also numbered as my lease is almost up and I'm yet to decide if I'll renew it. I'm kinda starting to like the quirks (as frustrating as they are) but nothing really sounds as interesting as Nine Inch Nails on a seriously crappy classical guitar.
