Practice and Evening AA

I practiced on my electric guitar again today and it felt good! After just one day, my finger placement has improved. I had school tonight -- Human Services and Diversity -- and talked with a fellow student, a guy who plays blues guitar. I told him about how my elbow and wrist were sore, that I have a tough time keeping my pinky finger on string and perpendicular to the fretboard. He said that it's all normal and natural, and with practice, it will get better. That was great to hear.

I left class a little early and went to an evening AA meeting. It was at a club I've been to before, but not this particular meeting. It was a step meeting with about 50 attendees. The meeting started out well; I heard some good stuff. Sadly, about 45 minutes in, there was a guy who initially shared good stuff, but began rambling and got into vivid descriptions of picking up prostitutes and watching them smoke crack. It felt really weird and uncomfortable, so I left.

Sorry the meeting got uncomfortable. I wouldn't have liked that either.

Glad you are enjoying playing the guitar!
