I first started taking guitar lessons when I was in second grade. I was already in piano and my mom’s restriction on me taking guitar was that I had to make sure I practiced both of them. Of course, I practiced neither and so I had to drop guitar.
But, during that one year I did manage to learn the basics and kept teaching myself from second grade until eighth grade, when I finally started taking lessons again. One of the songs from that first rather unsuccessful year of guitar lessons was Blackbird, as is the case for many people. Only in the past year or so have I finally started playing it again and only today did I actually get around to recording it.
