Hi, when I get married 18 years ago my wife bought me a electric guitar and since then Ive been trying to learn. I go. through this period of playing for 4 months getting frustrated quit and then sell my guitar. This has gone on for 16 years, so 2 years ago the guitar gods told me to either sit on the pot or get off, no more playing for 4 months then quitting. So i was like ok either do it or spend the rest of your life knowing that you could have learned but chose not to. So I decided to try a different approach and lear classical instead of electric. Bought a classical took 2 lessons and was ok I can do this
. Then I saw a flamenco video online and that was it I found my passion/torment
.So not knowing a single thing about flamenco I Sold my classical bought a flamenco guitar and have been self teaching for close to 2 years now. The first 8 months was battling that little voice that always told me to quit after 4 months ,lots of begging, pleading to god, trying to convince myself to quit but I dug in and pushed myself, probably the hardest thing Ive done in my life as silly as that may sound, but now that Ive slain at least %75 of my demons, Now Ive grown to love the challenges of learning to play. Every day i try to learn something new either playing or history and hope it never ends.
