I did it! After a month of putting off attempting chords on the guitar—and therefore refusing to pick up the guitar at all—I finally gave it a try!
I learned that chords were exactly as daunting as they looked, but after about 30 minutes, I could grit my way through “Ode to Joy.” Did it sound good? No. Did the 247th attempt sound better than the first? Yes.
The 248th will sound even better. In the meantime, I’m going to sit here and stare at my fingertips to see if callouses form.
