I have a confession. I have a thing for musicians. Don’t know what it is, but I’ve always had it. Give me a guy with a guitar and I’m a goner. Pianists are good too and if he can sing…well…you get the idea. Guys who aren’t even that attractive become suddenly more so once they start playing. Anybody else suffer from musician lust or is it just me?
Here’s my latest guy with a guitar crush… Damien Rice. Love him. I was going to put some youtube video clips in here to share the yumminess, but sadly, I can’t figure out how.
Unfortunately, hubby doesn’t have a musical bone in his body, so I’m the musical one in the family. (drums, bamboo flute, trumpet, french horn, singing) Well, Killian’s pretty musical too. He plays flute and he’s also started a guitar class at school – which was actually what I’d intended to blog about, but I got distracted by the thought of guys with guitars.
I’ve always wanted to play guitar but for various reasons (and excuses) I’ve never tried to learn. That’s about to change. Killian’s teacher found out I wanted to learn so she invited me to join the class. So every Monday and Wednesday afternoon, I hang out with 7th and 8th graders and practice with them. I can now play a G really well and so-so on the A and D, but I’m working on it.
I really don’t need one more thing added to my list of insanity, but I couldn’t turn down the offer of free lessons! Someday, maybe I’ll be able to play along with Margaret and Jen.
So what about it? Musician lust? The desire to play an instrument? Anybody play one?
