I’m getting rid of things. If I don’t use it, or don’t need it, I am saying goodbye. It’s a goal and rule I am trying very hard to implement.
In today’s objects of no desire, is my old picture guitar chord book. I have had this for over 30 years. I’ve kept it primarily for nostalgic reasons, I haven’t learnt a new guitar chord for many a year.
I taught myself to play guitar using this book. I followed the pictures and learnt the shapes and the chords. I was about 12 or 13 at the time. Along with learning the shapes I was allowed to play along with another guitar chap at the local church youth group. I will always be grateful to Roy T, for the help, encouragement and advice he gave me. Who’d have thought folk xian choruses from the late 70s would come in useful.
The book has no use and I don’t need it, so it’s off to the charity shop. I hope someone will find it, buy it and learn to play. I believe we need more music in the world.
I don’t need the book, but hopefully someone else will. It’s time to share the music.
