¡¡I LOVE THE INTERNET!!
No seriously though, today is another day that just shows me how much the internet is worth having a computer with internet access.
As all two of you know, I just recently bought a guitar (I am tempted to call it "Crossmack", but that doesn't really match the German perception of "guitar" as a female noun... hmpf) and I am already deeply in love with it.
However, what I wanted to write about is this:
Before yesterday I never even tried to play something on a guitar, and I know probably everyone knows someone who plays guitar and who showed them some little things to play, but not for me. Nobody ever showed me how to even hold a guitar.
So of course the first thing I had to do was tuning it. And smart little me figured, why not search for "How to tune a guitar" on YouTube. Through that search I didn't only find a video that really helped with all steps of the tuning, but a whole website of some Canadian guy who pretty much teaches guitar lessons through video.
Now that may not sound like something special or surprising, but I am truely and deeply amazed by it.
Pay for guitar lessons? Ah pfff, I gots me my computer.
Best thing was when I told my dad about me getting a guitar, [and you have to know he has never been online in his whole life, he doesn't even know how to write or read a text message on his cell phone (which he of course never uses anyways)] his questions were: how much did it cost? and: so you get lessons now?
When I answered him that I probably won't need any lessons (not that I'd have the money for them anyways) he was pretty much surprised and didn't really understand.
He just asked me: "They have teachers on the internet?"
Oh so cute, isn't it?
Btw, if you wanna look up the brand of my guitar, I'm pretty sure you won't find that much, but it's from "Alba", it was extremely cheap, and I just read some posts on different websites about it, and they all were positive. So go me and my new little red wine colored toy xD
