One month and going....

It has been more than a month now!I am glad my interest is still intact.Have been practising my Guitar almost every day.I am light year away from playing my first song.Don't want to rush to it only to find it horrendously difficult.Just want to go slow and steady and nice.

So far just able to remember few basic chords and make some chord change as well,albeit nasty,I believe with more diligent and regular practise it will get smother withing next few months.Just the thought of smooth chord change makes me feel so happy.Imagine when I start playing my favourite songs :)
I am loving it..umm :D

I have been thinking of learning to play Guitar for last two decades.I always wanted to play it and play it well.While I could not do it during school days,I deliberately avoided delving into this while engineering.

Bihari parents are not that much into extra co curricular activities!Though I was allowed to actively take part in sports ,music was not encouraged.After all board and entrance exam were far more important to be fiddled with!

Engineering college was diff rent.You could do what ever you wanted,free from the parental constraint.My deep seated desire to master Guitar once again started rolling left and right in my head.I saw few of my friends with exactly same desire.I saw them buying and even practising.But after few semester and few songs I saw them giving up ,probably overwhelmed by the difficulty level of Guitar.

I did not wanted to end up like them.I never start anything ,if I have faintest doubt of not achieving the target meaningfully.So I gave up the idea,shelving it for some future date.Probably after a settled career.

I had been seriously contemplating about buying a Guitar for last few years.The same question would pop up again and again.Will I be able to learn it so that I can play any song ,or will it end up just like a fleeting hobby,daunted by its difficulty level .Do I have the time and passion?Is Guitar the right instrument for me,do I really have it in me to play Guitar....and many other self doubts.

I finally bought one,at 33.And from second day(not day one!) have started practising it.Its two weeks now.

My left hand fingers are sore,getting toughened each day.And that means I am on the right track.I must say learning Guitar is indeed overwhelming.Its incredibly difficult.Changing from one chord to another itself looks like climbing mount everest.

Sometime I feel it will take ages before I will be able to play anything recognisable.But,I am not giving up.It is hard,but I like it.Oh,I forgot to add,its electric guitar :)

Nude again !

In less than half an hour.Not as well as I would have liked it to be.Needs devoted practise,which I soon hope to revive.

CWG-The Great India Laughter Challange

Long time!
Have been away from the blog, since quite few weeks !!!And not without reason. The only reason is probably I have lost interest. Or may be because I have someone else now to focus my attention to. A brand new test tube baby !

Or probably, I have nothing new to write .Day in and day out I keep reading and listing the same old affairs of apathy and corruption in India .CWG, the latest shit on the face of Indians, to say the list. As an Indian I feel truly despaired, hapless and cheated by some third rate criminals running the show called Indian democracy. Manmohan Singh, the spineless Sardar, a blot in the name of “Sardars” to say the least.

Anyway, there are millions Indians, if not billion, who feel the same way. So I keep the finger crossed and wait for that tryst with destiny, when we can hold our head high and look into the eyes of developed nation and not feel ashamed of ourselves.


I would probably be posting some of my new drawing here,hopefully in next few weeks :)
