My brother bought me a bass guitar for Christmas, so I decided to take some lessons with this girl that I met at an Ani Difranco concert. It was called Guitar Girl and it was up in Austin. I believe there were 6 rehearsals and then a showcase which was at Antone’s. Somehow I missed that last part and as I started to give up on learning my part, I started making excuses as to why I couldn’t make it to practice. I tried to quit and my teacher convinced me to stay and continue trying. If I am not perfect at something immediately, often, I feel like its time to give up and move on, but this time I tried to continue through.
