As a young lad, I had a great interest in learning to play the guitar. In those days it was the dream of every boy to become a rock star. However, learning to play the guitar was not an easy thing since I did not have a guitar and I simply could not convince my parents to buy me a guitar. They believed that a guitar would derail me. Like many other older folks, the new wave of rock star musicians were not trusted and they were seen as unruly defiant renegades.
With my great desire to learn playing the guitar, I was able to find a small church a small distant from our home that had a few acoustic guitars and it was offering free lessons to those who wished to learn playing the instrument. The church was also offering lessons in piano and the flute but my interest was solely focused on learning the guitar.
When I started learning to play the guitar I did not know that there was a difference between the acoustic guitar and an electric guitar. I came to learn that there was a difference much later when I was puzzled that the rock stars performing in live concerts could produce sounds that were so different to what I could produce from my acoustic guitar.
At first, I had simply assumed that the only difference between my guitar playing and the rock stars’ was the fact that they amplified their music for the sake of their huge audiences. I thought that the wire cables and other accessories such as the guitar amplifiers were simply for sound amplification.
I later came to learn about the sound modification abilities that the electric guitars could produce and it made me yearn to play the electric guitar. However I could not afford to buy one and there was not church around that had an electric guitar that it could provide for the public.
It has been many years since that time and my interest for having an electric guitar slowly abated as other things took center stage in my life.
My interest for playing the guitar was resurrected a few months ago when I met my fiancé. I met her while on a working trip to the Middle East where my company sent me alongside other representatives from other divisions of the company. While on the flight to Saudi Arabia the seat I was given was next to the seat where a beautiful lady from another department sat.
During the flight, we chatted and made good friends and our friendship lasted the entire period in Middle East. The relationship continued when we came back home from the trip and it quickly developed into a love affair.
One of my fiancé’s best past time is playing the guitar and she was elated when she discovered that I had some skills in playing the guitar. She has an electric guitar and so I decided that I would also buy one so that she could teach me how to play the electric guitar.
From an online review of the Epiphone wildcat electric guitar, and from my fiancé’s advice, I decided to buy the Epiphone wildcat guitar and I was finally able to achieve my dream of playing an electric guitar.
