New toy!  
Well, I'd been debating picking up a guitar for a couple months - as much as I love the piano, it's pretty tough to take with you, and I thought trying something new would be nice. I'd mostly settled on a make and model, but today, enveri and I were out and about, and decided to stop by the local music shop. Turns out they were having a pretty major sale, and this happy fellow ended up following us home:



It's a Seagull Maritime, with quite a lovely sound. Now I just need to learn to play the thing! So far, the by-ear part seems to be coming along pretty quickly, and carry over from piano. Definitely need to work on technique, though ;) Genet's looking forward to learning it, too, and possibly taking lessons at the place we got it from.

A friend of mine tried to teach me guitar a few years ago. I wasn't bad, considering I've had no formal musical training, but it will take a lot of work.

Heh! I think I have almost that exact same one.. though much, much older. :)
