Happy Ten Year Anniversary!

No, not Leah and I...we haven't even made the zero mark yet!

I was looking through some pictures today, and I came to the realization that I've now been playing guitar for ten years!

It all started many years ago in the summer of 1999, when I was but a wee lad...

I still remember my first guitar. It was a Bentley, which I think was some cheap knock-off brand. After I realized that I was going to stick with it, I moved up to the Takamine in the photo above. It was also cheap, but I thought it was the coolest guitar in the world.

Now, ten years have gone by. It doesn't really seem like it's been that long. For one thing, I would have hoped to be a better player than I am after ten years, but there simply aren't enough hours in the day to do everything that needs to get done and practice.

Anyway, feel free to wish me and my guitars a happy anniversary in the comment box. This really is a momentous occasion!


  1. Awwh, how sweet. Happy anniversary, dear.

    You'd better remember our anniversaries with such enthusiasm! :-)

  2. Congrats!! But, I believe Leah's "Cake Anniversary", or the amount of time she's spent eating and baking cakes, far exceeds your guitarnniversary. :)
