Calluses

~ Aileen

I got a new friend on Saturday :)
Meet Christopher, my guitar :) [yes, Melvin-I can hear you laughing away]
No, havent got a pic of it yet but I can assure you it looks great, to me!
So, I brought my previous guitar down to Parklane on Sat..thinking I'll get it set-up properly so that i can try tinklin w it again. Though I must confess I was hoping I can find a shop which'll allow me to trade-in for a new one...lo and behold, I did! Thankfully, Melvin had kindly offered to go down w me and a divine help in shortlisting/selecting a new guitar. :)
And calluses wld be the next best thing I hope for on my fingers, so that I can play longer and maybe better :) I had gone for lessons some years ago, and amazingly can recall some simple chords.
Well, I figured giving a name to the instrument wld increase sense of ownership and perhaps practise time - so after much deliberation, it's Christopher! you bet it's better choice than Tommy huh? [ok, now I think Julia prob has some things to say...hahah]

yeah! that's fantastic, at least one of us aspiring guitarists did something about it. Has it got anything to do with faith goal?

Christopher is a nice name, reminds me of Christopher Reeves...so why Christopher?

Candy,
Admittedly, I have no idea why Christopher too. Shujuan suggested Tom and I modified to Tommy but it didnt seem right. So when Christopher struck me, I thot "that's it!". The closest association I came to, was Christopher who's the boy owning Winnie the Pooh and I thought he's one cool boy :)

Jul,
hahaha. ok. but is it ok if I spent the last few moments before bed with it?? ;)
