A guy I know gave me an old/crappy/part nylon string/spanish acoustic guitar tonight, so that I wouldn’t have to 1. go to a pawn shop by me self and (most likely) get taken advantage of while buying a (most likely) stolen guitar, and 2. pay lots of money at a real guitar store on something that I don’t know how to use correctly. Yay for (most likely) friends!!
It’s got a broken e string, so that’s exciting. It’s not in tune, which is also cool. You think I’m being sarcastic, but I’m honestly so stoked about this. I can’t wait to fix ‘im up! It’s a darker color, not that light caucasian looking wood. The case is old and black and worn and one of the clasps doesn’t close, and there’s ONE random sticker on the back. To me, all of these features give my new guitar a lot of character, spunk, gumption if you will. I love him. I know most guitars are female, but to me, this one is a male. This is partly because it was given to me by a male.
The best part is: I’m gonna get so many chicks with this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Meaning: I hope the cool kids will invite me to play guitar with them, even though I’ll suck. So far my repertoire consists of only three songs: 1. We Are Gonna Be Friends by the White Stripes. 2. New Slang by The Shins. 3. Edelweiss from The Sound of Music.
Not exactly songs people rock/jam out to. And since the next song I’m attempting is Enrique Iglesias’s “Be With You,” that doesn’t up my street cred any…I looked into “Thugz Mansion” by Tupac, but that shit is too hard to play. It’s like expert advanced. God, I love Tupac:
