I’ve decided I need a new hobby.
I don’t really play much on the computer any more (that only took about 20 years to get old for me), and I’m looking for something new to do.
So… I’m thinking of buying a guitar.
Now I’m not going to jump into the abyss that is music head first… that stuff is expensive! Instead, I’m opting for the safe and sane approach: buy something that’s good (but not great) and see how I like it. Worst case scenario… I’m out a couple of hundred dollars.
I was thinking of getting an acoustic guitar until I found out that I can get an electric for the same price. Not only is the cool factor higher, I can wear headphones and spare my family the agony of listening to me torture the instrument (creating that coveted “cat in heat” sound).
I found it in a package deal online for $199 (that’s for the guitar, a crappy amp, crappy bag, cables, shoulder strap, and instructional videos). Not a bad deal.
I might order it this week.
