Topic: Another Rant
I....I... I almost don't know what happened.
It all started when we decided to take a trip to the Library (we were on a budget). Most of the time we were just browsing around. First I looked at the magazine section and then I hopped over to the comic section to see what I could find; nothing. It then struck me to look in the music section.
And there it was, almost as if it were a sign from God. It was the book. While I was at the library I only had time to read the introduction, but my first impression was that, "this book means business" It did.
The name of the book was plain and simple. "How to Write Songs on the Guitar"
I wanted to check it out I really did, but I didn't own a library card...I had to come back the next day.
Now, after going through 25 pages I feel like my Pool of guitar knowledge just turned into a very small glass of water.....with a crack at the bottom.
Seriously!!!! All the book had a chance to say were some tips on how to "start" writing some songs and go through the basic built structures of chords. I think I stopped out of amazement at the Minor chords with the added major seventh chords (Ex: Am/major 7) Even though I was familiar with most everything in the book...this turned my world upside down. it just presented everything so clear to me when it was fairly vague in my mind.
I now feel like I know nothing....And I love the feeling. Its almost as if I can start learning all over again.
Ever felt this way? I feel inspired to learn. Its like someone just handed me a Road map when before I was driving where ever the wind took me.
