band aids, huh? *lightbulb*

meh, im getting better at it. i taught myself MOST of the major scales on it but my superintendent told me if i played c major scale one more time he was going to make me eat the guitar. So he drew me out these fingering techniques and this really neat guide to help me and now he makes me play the bass line from all these old jackson 5 and stevie wonder songs. i really appreciate it becasue its helping me get comfortable with the instrument.

its funny because his office is right next to mine so if i mess up a lot he'll stroll over here and he says "GIMME!" as he snatches the guitar from me. then he plays it slow, then fast and then hands it back to me and goes "YOU DO IT!" and walks out, lmao

It'll be 3 years coming up in Feb since he passed.
I told him in one of his hospital visits before the last one that if he got out I would play with him at his church.
That seemed to give him reason to want to get out of the hospital as quick as possible, he was much more cooperative with the staff after that.

I used to play bass. Taught myself on a fret less neck. That was hard! But my first day I was playing NIN - bite the hand that feeds
