Topic: Acoustic Jams
I've decided to change my approach to learning to play. I've gone as far as I can with "teaching myself". My lack of skill combined with my lack of discipline combine to make a lovely rut for me to sit. Very comfortable but not helpful to reach my goal.
Since I am in exile of sorts, living apart from my family and honey-do list, I have discretionary time to practice. It's time to put this time to good use. I've found two jams to attend this weekend and that is the plan.
I realize this is the standing recommendation I've received here at Chordie since day one but I've allowed my stubbornness and anxiety to keep me from proceeding with others. My recent forays to Bluegrass jams have shown me I may not be the worst player and the guitar community is a welcoming and forgiving lot.
Funny I had similar anxiety about golf. What I found is anyone can have a great (or terrible) day at golf and it was no different for me.
