Evening everyone…Does anyone ever miss the excitement of first learning to play? I’ve been playing guitar for roughly 27 years, and I recently heard one of the first songs I learned to play. I had a moment of nostalgia, and was thinking of how amazing it was to learn songs and techniques in the beginning. I was a teen in the nineties, and I would print tabs from the shiny new internet thingy. There was just something so special in those early years that I just can’t capture anymore. It wasn’t about being a shredder, the gear, or even being better than the next guy..it was just the joy of learning and playing. Maybe it’s just me…I haven’t been jamming with friends like I used to, or playing as much at home. We all just have lives and responsibilities now, and playing long hours isn’t an option anymore. Maybe I’m being sappy, but I was just wondering if anyone here has felt like this, and if you were ever able to recapture some of that magic.
