My daughter doing one of her favorite things.

My Oldest daughter Madison

I am so proud of this young lady this is my oldest daughter. She begged and begged for a guitar and I thought yeah sure this is something that would be passing and she'd be onto to the next big thing. We'll I finally gave in and got her one last year. She has soared with it and is with it to this day. She's quit good and has basically taught herself. I offered to get her lesson's she said no this was her thing she wanted to learned her way. She save up her money and bought a couple of guitar books and the rest she's learned from youtube video's. She is a very strong willed child but in some ways it can be a good thing, lol.

Congratulations! I'm glad she finally persuaded you :) I can tell that once you get into music, you never go back. In a good way of course. Now I started to play the piano back in primary school. Eight years later I picked up the acoustic guitar. Three years after that I started to teach myself how to play the bass guitar. Three more years and I bought a drumkit (which is a really fun challenge, and a cool one too). Am I crazy? Addicted? Maybe, but my life is worth way more now. I recommend paying lots of attention to music theory. Some people hate it, some absolutely love it, but theory is probably a top-level priority. Chords, progression, scales, genres, what comes with what, why that works with that, I could even add psychology and physics, but yeah maybe that's a bit too far. But worth it, even if you just want to play for leisure. It's like scratching the tip of infinity. But doing that, you literally become a part of it. I can guarantee it's something that doesn't pass. Don't forget to encourage her, but hey, you managed to take a photo of her with the guitar - I remember how I used to hide in my room every time I plugged in my guitar. I turned the volume to minimum and when somebody visited me, I was just sitting on my bed pretending to be doing nothing, he he :) For me it was like this - I could play for fifteen thousand people no problem, but if even one of them was my close relative, it would make things 10 times harder. Thankfully I got rid of that feeling. But that's just me and my paranoia :D

Yeah she tends to pull back when she thinks someone is watching or listening. But she is actually very good. She's coming out of some of it. I told her it's just because she is doing so good at it that everyone wants to hears and that's not a bad thing.

Thats great. I tried learning at least one musical instrument before but i failed. I bought someone a guitar though as a gift.

It's hard learning to play something. I played violin when I was younger I can't anymore though because I had broken my arm about 6 years ago and really messed up hand. Hoping that one of my kids would pick it up as I would love to teach them.

Violinist/s amazes me. Maybe because they look so dramatic on camera/movies. lol I used to play bass flute in school when i was young. I was given a soprano flute too but i wanted to focus on being an athlete.

yes I am. Yeah that's why I was a little relucent on getting her one because she's started things before and quit in the middle but so far so good. Hopefully she'll stick with it she's very talented.
