Am Mishap

See what did there?

I had a little bit of a setback yesterday; first of all there was the tuning issue that I mentioned already. I thought I had solved this first by the use of the Smoke Alarm battery; unfortunately it turns out is was the tuner not the battery that was the issue, that is unless of course my smoke alarm is about as useless as a chocolate teapot.

But i thought outside the box a little bit and found an App that performed the same function, gstrings, a guitar tuner for your phone. Genius!

It seems however that years of neglect finally took their toll on my poor guitar and during said tuning I managed to snap the E string. Luckily and somewhat lavishly for someone who hasn’t picked up a guitar in 5+ years I own 2 more.

The other electric was also missing its E string but thankfully the acoustic (technically my wives guitar, but hey what’s mine is yours and all that.) has all its strings and only needed some minor tuning to get it into working order.

I managed to just about play the intro part of “Still Alive” today and even managed to recall some of the previous songs I used to know such as “Dont look Back In Anger” albeit painfully, with some appalling chord changes and a lot of trial and error.

What I did learn however is that despite the fairly constant pain in my fingertips, making even the typing of this blog somewhat uncomftable, I do miss playing the guitar and perhaps this experience could turn out to be a lot more than a topic for a blog and will get me back into playing.


Am = A Minor in case the title passed you by.
