I’ve been learning how to play the guitar for almost a year now, and I must say, I wish I had more time to practice. It’s encouraging to look back and remember when I could not for the life of me get my fingers to play a C chord, but then I listen to all of the great musicians I love and I want to be able to play way more complicated stuff. That being said, I have recently decided to increase my repertoire and learn some new songs. Right now I’m obsessed with Priscilla Ahn (if you don’t know her, seriously look her up). She plays a beautiful song called “Dream” which gives me some finger plucking practice and another gorgeous piece called “Leave the Light On,” which has some bar chords I’m getting better at playing. So, hopefully, between physics problem sets, bio lab, and arts&letters reading (not to mention that fickle necessity, sleep), I’ll find some time to master these soon.
