The tips of my fingers

on my left hand no longer feel.
The callouses are building.
The sensitivity is long gone.
I have given it up
for the yearning to learn guitar.

Progress is going pretty well.
Strumming is natural because I am a drummer, a dancer, and I've been around some sweet guitarists for most of my life.
I can play a lot of chords-
even with just the basics, I can play a ton of songs.
I have lately taken to Taylor Swift.
(Dude, I thought "Our Song" old song. But nope, it was Taaay!).

Though I have learned many chords
I've come to learn that I don't really have a knack for writing songs.
At least not yet.
If this continues I shall be very sad.

Until then, I shall strum along.
