Guitar nowhere-yet-near-hero

But I'm starting, at least. Guitar lessons, that is.

So far I'm the proud renter of a Fender DG-7 six-string acoustic guitar, and the grizzled veteran of one (count it, one) half-hour lesson at the local music shop. As a result, I can with some accuracy pluck an "E", and with rather less accuracy an "F" and "G". And I've got five more strings I haven't even touched yet (on purpose, at least)! Whee!

All joking aside, I think this is going to be fun. I know it's early days, and I know everybody else starts out at this level of incompetence. (Except perhaps Menolly of Half-Circle Sea Hold, but she's a fictional character and thus Does Not Count.)
