Katherine Becker came over last night to practice guitar and we had a nice visit. When she left I left the guitar and my soft nylon pick in the den with the cat and went to bed. When I came in in the morning the cat had bitten a hole in the pick. I really wouldn't have predicted that...

Anyway, I was posting because we're still pretty much beginners and I was wondering if folks who've also studied guitar had any recommendations for songs we should try learning. If you can point us to chordings that would be helpful too. I also ought to dig out Rise up Singing and see if I can figure out some of those songs...

yeah. the cat didn't get any wet food this morning for that reason. I didn't mean to leave the garbage can full last night, but we may also need to get a new garbage can for the kitchen - one that's less tipable and that closes.

nod. would still need to get a new trash can to keep it in the cupboard. Or could switch to what my parents use - paper bag with plastic bag in it, under the sink. Then we'd have to gather recycleables someplace else or store cleaning stuff elsewhere. I'll have to find out more about a compactor.

Songs - find some easy Beatles. Yes, I know it's cheesy, but you get a good payoff because people will recognize what you're playing.

You're still in A2 right? I think you can pick up a real book/fake book there and a guitar chord dictionary and go nuts.

I guess it also comes down to your goals playing... classical? melodic? chord strumming? heavy metal? (haha)

Oh and hey, found a shot of me from back when you knew me at commie high: http://www.miranda.org/~vergil/images/verg-highschool.jpg
