Playing Happy Birthday On My Guitar, Again
Just about 3 weeks ago I attempted to play Happy Birthday on my guitar for Frank on his birthday and it wasn’t pretty. As you can see in the video below even Frank falls asleep out of boredom. I had just learned how to play the song about an hour or so before recording, so I guess it wasn’t that bad. [view on YouTube]
Well, I wanted to record another video of me playing the same song so that I can get a sense of how much I’ve improved (or not improved) since I first learned how to play Happy Birthday. Since that first video I’ve practiced playing my guitar at least a little bit every other day and I’m feeling pretty good about where I’m at.
My fingers are finally calloused (which means they don’t hurt anymore when I play) and I know all of the basic chords by heart, although I’m still not great at moving between each one while I’m playing (which you’ll see in the video). Up until this point I’ve really enjoyed learning how to play guitar and I’m going to stick with it for a while. I think the next logical step would be to get some real lessons from someone who actually knows how to play. Yeah, that sounds like a good idea.
Anyways here’s the second video of me playing Happy Birthday and I’ll be sure to throw up another video once I actually learn another song. [view on YouTube]
