Southeastern United States
I am a 32 year old mother to 6 small
children, which I stay home and teach
myself. I keep pretty busy, but I enjoy
music, cooking, and writing in my spare
time. My husband and I own an old farm in
the deep Southern part of the US, where God,
Country, and Football rule (in that order).
I am perpetually addicted to learning--which
is why I'm here.
Why do you want to learn how to play
guitar?: I have grown up around a lot of
music. I played violin as a child, and
picked it up again in high school. I also
played a little bit of stand up bass and
acoustic guitar while in school. My cousins
started a band, which I managed, and went on
to record a couple of albums. I married a
man who's parents played music at the
professional level. I have now put one of my
children in music lessons, and thought that
it would be nice to pick up an instrument
again myself. After dusting off my violin, I
decided that wasn't what I wanted to play.
Seeing as how I live in the Southern United
States, I figured the guitar would be a good
and easy instrument to pick up and play with
my friends--who all seem to play SOMETHING.
What sort of music do you want to
play? I prefer contemporary pop music,
since it's generally easy to listen to (and
I hear, easy to play). However, since I
ENJOY many different styles of music, I
wouldn't mind learning how to play a little
bit of everything. Bluegrass is king in my
neighborhood, so I'm thinking I should learn
some of that---but it's not my favorite.
