Good lord, when will you stop practicing that guitar today?
It’s pretty easy to know which question applies to a serious musician and which one applies to someone going through the motions.
I took guitar lessons as a kid for just a little while. My teacher wasn’t great and the guitar was too big for my hands. In short order, I lost interest. Sometimes I wish I would have stuck with it just a little bit longer. But even at such a young age, I knew that music wasn’t for me.
A different kind of artistic lightning struck me when I was 13. That’s the first time that a picture that I had created came out exactly how I imagined.
I immediatley rode my bike back to the drug store where the photos were processed and spent almost all of my remaining money on a ten roll pack or “brick” of film.
