Playing a guitar sketchMy daughter and I are doing a free online “Introduction to guitar” course via Coursera. Like many things in life playing the guitar is harder than it looks. My daughter already did one term of group guitar lessons at school, so for a change has a higher level of ability than I do and gets to laugh at my clumsy attempts to play the simplest cords. I doubt that I’ll find the time to practice long enough to gain any sort of skill level, but after my weak attempt to make some pleasant sounds on a guitar I’m sure going to appreciate even more the skills that professional guitar players achieve.
