I finally tuned my guitar again after letting it sit lonely on its stand for a few months. I practiced scales and strumming and some dexterity exercises. Phoebe asked me to tune hers as well and actually tried placing her fingers on the right frets for a chord. (She used to insist on playing her own way, uninterested in learning chords.) She had fun for a bit and then was over it. I intend on practicing more often now that school is less intense as before. This time I hope not to get too impatient with myself as I learn this new skill.
