Instructor: What are you playing? What are you playing?!!
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.
