Will I be a Spanish guitarist?

 First time I ever heard the song “Bamboleo” I fell in the love with the sound of the guitar. I’ll never forget it. I was 19, moved abroad to Mexico City to study Spanish for the year at UNAM the National University of Mexico City. The Gypsy kings are one of my most favourite bands! I hope one day…. down the road that I will be able to play this song on guitar.

But for now, it’s back to Feliz Navidad. Here is a clear sound of the chords that I have mastered so far without stopping:

CGD chords are now kind to me!

Again, I am quite proud of myself that I even picked up the guitar and I’m looking forward to moving along past this stage. The goal is to use these chords but to a faster pace and to move along with strumming! Practice and dedication will help me achieve this.

Did I mention I have man hands? Sausage looking fingers?

Have you ever seen the episode of Seinfield when Jerry goes on a date with a woman with man hands….those are my hands.

Moving along the fret and neck board have taken some getting used to with my man hands….but slowly and surely it’s coming along.

Speaking of which, I am now learning parts of the classical guitar instead of making up names for it.
