I bought a guitar!! There's a Guitar Center a little under 10 minutes away from work, and oh my stars and garters they're open till 9pm on weeknights HUZZAH!! So once I'm driving myself I'll have a quick and easy jaunt to get anything that I might happen to need for my guitar, and I got a coupon for a free 30 minute lesson at the place next door for buying a guitar there, and a user-related damage warranty for two years for $20, which isn't bad. And the place is AWESOME, there's whole walls full of electrics, guitars hanging everywhere, a massive room with nothing but beautiful acoustics, and even a whole room of drum sets which of course I'm not going to need but it's cool that it's there :D.

My guitar is beeeeeeautiful *_*. It's a FenderSolid Wood Top Dreadnought, according to the package, and I got the whole acoustic value pack so I got a DVD, a Fender gig bag, electronic tuner, an extra pack of strings, a Fender strap, picks, and a Fender string winder. I have no fucking clue how to use the string winder, and the strap, sadly enough, confused me at first glance, but Bridgie's brother Stan just happens to be visiting this weekend and he's the mad hot shiznit on guitar, actually a professional, so hopefully he'll be able to show me the basics of what the hell I'm doing :D. Manda let me borrow her guitar basics book too, so yay!

After the first 30 seconds in which I played it, Bridgie took it over and has barely put it down since. It's a good thing she keeps assuring me she's not interested in learning. Otherwise I'd think I've created a monster XD. Now to see if I can steal my own guitar back! [rolls up sleeves]

Mmm, there's nothing quite like the feel and sound of a new guitar... but just wait until you've had it a while and picking it up to play it is like talking to an old friend, that's even better!

Sounds like you're all set! XD What sort of things do you want to be able to play? And what's her name? :)

And I'm sure Bridgie's just, uh, keeping her company while you're not around. Yeah, that's it.

I can't wait until I actually have some idea of what the hell I'm doing :D. And I'm hoping she's a guitar that can grow with me. She makes some damn beautiful sounds when I'm not fucking them up XD.

I just want to be able to play what I love to hear, heh. Anything and everything that catches my interest would be nice! If I can get decent enough I'd like to try electric too, and maybe even learn bass. Because you know, I've got a lifetime to kill, right :D. I don't know her name yet, I'll have to get acquainted with her first then we'll figure that out ^_^.

Bridgie's having an affair with my new guitar ;_;. Hopefully they'll both have it out of their systems with all the playing I'm sure she'll do while I'm at work every day XD.
