BlueJay why did you want to play the guitar. (37) RE: why did you want to play the guitar. 20 Oct 01

I was tired of trying the school orchestra regimen, which I found to be grueling and unsatisfying. I was inspired more by the music of the times when I was in school, which was the folk wave of Dylan, PP&M, Tom Paxton, etc.

I'm glad I learned the guitar, but I've always kind of wished I had kept up on the fiddle as well. If I had found some inspiration other than the "ruler to the fingers" method, I might be a fiddler as well as a guitar player today. I would have learned the guitar in any case.

There's probably a lesson in there somewhere. Thanks, BlueJay
