Lenore’s Entry: Hi again! I want to talk about when I was 6, and I stared playing guitar. This is a old video of me playing my electric blue guitar. This song is “People Are Strange”. It is by “The Doors”. When I was 6, I thought they were called “The DORVES”, and now I know their real name. This is my first song that I ever played on my guitar. It took me lots of weeks to learn it.
Now I am learning to play a song called “Little Boxes” by Malvina Reynolds. My favorite band, “Walk Off The Earth” plays a cover of this song. I like this song, and I will play it in about 3 weeks for my blog. In the meantime, I hope you like watching them and me when I was 6. Today I learned the “D” barre chord. I put my pointer finger on all of the strings except for the top one. Then I flatten out my ring finger and put pinky finger on the second string. It’s hard to talk about when you don’t see the guitar. I’ll show you how to do it soon. It feels hard on the wrist and hand. I got to shake it off a little. But anyways, it’s fun. Have a good day and night. Bye!
Mom’s Notes: As stated above, Lenore picked up her first guitar roughly a year ago. She has been practicing almost every day, and we encourage her to choose her own songs. We find there is more interest in “sticking with it” if she has some choices. This indeed is one of her absolute favorite bands. They are pretty fun, and I encourage you to check out more of their videos. She will be back on Friday with another post. Thanks for watching.
