Oh, the reality!

I can tell I'm getting real guitar lessons because yesterday I was assigned to do isometric exercises that seriously make my whole hand hurt, from the stretching and the muscles not used to doing that and stuff. (Index on third fret and hold down (play string continuously) add middle on fourth and keep holding both and add ring finger on fifth fret and hold and play and then pinky on 6th. Keep playing and release them, one by one. Go down one string. repeat.)

I suddenly found myself remembering playing the baritone horn with braces on. Interesting that I should have this old old association between mastering music and pain...

The pain in my fingertips is going down a bit, I think. trying not to be too optimistic about that part though.
