I got said guitar. Started practicing. TWAN-nn-nn-g. String broke. Ok, new strings.
Then I started removing and replacing strings. Aannnd, we had a (fret? The part that holds the string) break. Husband said, don't worry, I can fix that. So, about a month later (he had a big job for his company, and couldn't commit the time), he took a good look at it, and then said, uh, I don't have the right materials, how about you buy some at the music store?
So, I buy the %^&* things. The guy at the music store said he'd show me how to put the strings on. Great! So I take the guitar in, and he starts to show me. Then he tries out the one string. Buzzz, buzzzzz, buzzzz. This does NOT sound right. He looks it over, and then tells me that while it's a good guitar, the top part that holds the strings is too low, and should have a shim under it.
I have already gone $10 over what I swore I would call my upper limit on this thing. I am not sure if I should try yet ONE MORE TIME, or just get a new guitar and call it good.
I suppose I need to give my husband a chance, he mentioned a fix for the top part. So, I will see if his fix will work, then give serious time
I had a goal to learn a song by Christmas.
Guess it's a good thing that I didn't say WHICH Christmas, huh?
