I have been craving music. Haven’t you?
Oh, Good Friday.
Fri-yay for after work when the responsibility falls asleep and the fun awakens!
One of the first things I do after clocking out is turning on my car radio. The first station keeps Beatles, another Taylor Swift, and another Leona Lewis. Ed Sheeran occasionally hops onto my Pandora if I slip off a commercial-cliff.
The music is good today, so good!
The type of good that you get lost in.
Most days after work, I go straight home (or to Publix for a bite). Today, for Friday, I pass by a pawn shop. This is a secret of mine for music equipment. Shh…
Like I mentioned, I’ve been craving music!
Inside Paradise Pawn, there is a wall of guitars. Three lines of stacked instruments act as living wallpaper. After fitting a sunburst Fender Starcaster and this Les Paul-inspired beauty, I make a decision. The clerk has the hospitality of a Keebler elf and throws in an extra string to replace the broken one.
This must be what having a baby feels like! After weeks of scouring Craigslist and eBay, I finally found my guitar.
Now that we’re home, I’m using Yousician to teach myself how to play. This is a helpful site for self-teaching. Facebook transferred into my free username. It was ready and set up within 5 minutes. I’m learning–so far I recommend it!
And this is how an ordinary day turned into a Feel Good Friday. #writefulmindfgf
