And Away We Go

I got the guitar.  It is a handsome looking item.  Unfortunately the tag says "Made in China."  Why did I buy a Fender instead of a Yamaha if the Fender is not made in USA?

Anyways, Got the thing tuned up and I am following the lessons on this site.
All is going well. . . . I think.  I can play the D, A, and E chords and nothing else.  
I think I am doing well.  I can play for about 20min before my fingers hurt too much, but that is to be expected, and they should start to callous soon.  I think tomorrow's lesson includes playing a song.  Oh the joy!

Because if you Brought a Computer to a Camp Fire...

So, HH6 provided some counseling the other day which wan't too positive.

Seems that my family's desire to move away from "main-stream" has come into conflict with my love for FPS.  (no, not feet per second,but first person shooters)  Sigh.... Diablo III likely won't be good anyways.  

I took my counseling statement like every good joe does, but it wasn't easy.
Eventually, she got to the corrective action: I had to find a new hobby.  I told her that I always wanted to learn to play the guitar. She stated that while the video game budget was in danger of the axe, the budget for musical instruments is flush with funding and may be used in this instance.

Tomorrow, I expect to receive my new equipment, a Fender Starcaster acoustic guitar.  I found mostly positive reviews, but I will keep you all no-one up to date as I learn to play.
Better than my exercise routine that is.

That is all.
