Me (Getting my fingers crossed again): Uh. I think it’s A? No nooo. C? Ah. Uh…

Instructor (Most exasperated now as I don’t think he’s had such a dumb student in a while): You’re playing the wrong string, dear.

Me (Wishing there weren’t so many b***** strings): But why is it so complicated? I’m trying to play B and I keep playing E, by mistake!!

Instructor (eyes rolling heavenwards): Okay, let’s check the score on TV now.

As you can imagine, I’m still stuck at the string (also the instructor’s favourite): namely G.

  2. Patience, my dear… patience. I was thrown out of violin class due to what my instructor called “salacious glances”, thrown out of my guitar class due to what the instructor called “crooked fingers”, thrown out of drums class due to what the instructor called a “way too independent” spirit…

    I play the guitar and drums pretty decently now 🙂 How? Friends and loads of online lessons. Yay!!
