Now that Roo’s little earbones are starting to develop, I keep thinking of my abandoned hobby: learning to play the guitar. Match and I bought two guitars on a whim, and started practicing. Then one day we just stopped and never picked it up again. I think it would be so amazing to learn to play guitar so I could play songs and sing for my little Roo.
I started browsing the Fender website, and I found all sorts of things I should get to go with my guitar. First and foremost would be a book on how to actually play the guitar. I also need a tuner, because the one attached to my guitar doesn’t work that well. I couldn’t help admiring the ukuleles. I love the sound they make when played correctly. I always think of the song Over the Rainbow as redone by Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole and how much I would love to play that. I daydream about how easily my little Roo would fall asleep to that sound; maybe even magically stop crying. Better yet, maybe one day become a gifted guitarist themselves. So I think I may start doing a little practicing. Even if all I learn is “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” I’ll be thrilled!
