I thought it was time I introduced Cordelia.
She arrived a couple of weeks ago; how exciting when the courier truck pulled up and a large cardboard box with my name on it was brought out of the back. I felt as excited as a 6 year old (and my 6 year old and my 9 year old were pretty excited too!)
She is a Cordoba (so you see Cordelia is entirely appropriate) C5 CE Thinbody. Slim body, semi acoustic nylon string, with an automatic tuner, and she came in a very good guitar bag too, which I wasn't expecting.
She's lovely to play, and was a bargain too, so I'm a very happy little beginner-muso.
This guitar-playing caper is in danger of becoming an addiction I think. I'm loving it so much, I'm playing constantly (though not always...or rather, not mostly, the things my guitar teacher has set!), and I'm hearing guitar music in my head all the time that my fingers desperately want to be able to play. Right now, after seeing Tracey last week (see previous post) I've got serious Blues riffs going round and round in my head. Cordelia is a little too well-bred for some real down-and-dirty blues...so I borrowed my mum's steel string and worked out how to change the tuning to DADGAD (guitar players will know what that means) and lo and behold...it sounds like the blues! Now I just need one of those slidey things!
I've been saying "I wish I could play the guitar" for over 25 years. And now I am...and I think I'm going to be good at it! So the moral of this story is...it's never too late to follow a dream, you're not too old, start NOW!
