Step 2

So the guitar has left its resting place and taken up residence in the computer room, and today it even got a few strums.

Unfortunately I have run into my first snag, albeit a simple one to fix.

The last time I picked up my guitar was at least 2 years ago, and if I’m not mistaken it might well be closer to five, so you can imagine what it sounded like on that first strum.

Not a problem I thought, I shall simply pull out the trusty tune, get it sorted and get cracking. Unfortunately said tuner is out of Juice and annoying takes one of those 9v square battaries that you never ever have spares of because practically nothing uses them, saying that lighting has just struck and I think that the fire alarm does, although I’m not sure if removing that is a violation of some kind of fire safety code.


I tried tuning by ear using the 5th fret tuning method, this did of course make it sound better but by no means was it in tune.

I then started to just strum a little, try and put a few chords together that I remembered, maybe even fashion together the beginnings of tune, a bit came back to me such as the basic cords but that was all.

I started trying to play the beginning part to “Still Alive” which down to the tuning (of course) sounded close, if not correct and in slow motion.

What I did learn however is that not playing guitar for years and then trying to, causes serious pain to your fingertips!
