and now I want one too.
Yeah, as the title says, Shaunna has bought herself an electric guitar to replace the accoustic one my son stole when he was here.
Anyway, it is a Squier Stratocaster Sunburst Brown, not black like the one in the external link. It comes with a 10 watt amp, a tuner, a set of picks, a carry case and a 10' cable to plug it in. She should have it by Monday or Tuesday. It also comes with 3 months of online lessons, so it's a pretty good deal for AU$369.00.
Thing is, and I can't play for nuts, I want one, too. Mine would have to be left-handed, though. One night we got on the beer and I dabbled with a mate's right-handed guitar and had some fun, but playing it upside down was not the easiest. I tried playing right-handed but it wasn't the best because I lacked the dexterity that way, so a left-handed guitar it is.
Yup, an old fart who's never played properly before, getting a guitar to have a bit of fun and learn a few tunes. Why not? And doing it with Shaunna will make it even more fun.... learning some Metallica and other heavy metal stuff to shake the foundations, hehe. What would be really good is if we can learn to play the blues like Roy Buchanan. We'd never be that good, but there's no harm in trying.
Well that's it for now, folks, an update when Shaunna's package arrives.
