I have been at this now for about two years. My musical interests are somewhat eclectic. I really like rock and the blues and I am a Parrot Head from way back. As such I am currently trying to learn two Jimmy Buffett songs: Margaritaville and Changes In Latitude Changes In Attitude. Down the road I hope to learn even more songs by Buffett. I am also working on Run Away Train by Soul Asylum, which is the first song that I tried to learn, and Angel From Montgomery by John Prine.
My biggest hurdles thus far are timing and changing from open chords to bar chords.
My goals are to master Margaritaville, Run Away Train, and Angel From Montgomery in the next two months and then turn my attention to other Jimmy Buffett songs and pursue my desire to play blues guitar.
