When I was 14 years old and was in second year of high school I fell in love with music, rock n’ roll music. The lights of Incubus, Guns N’ Roses, Oasis, Live, Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers inspires me when I listen to their music every day. One of my classmates is good in playing guitar and I envy him because he attracts a lot of attention from our beautiful girl classmates. Not only that I also hear him playing one of my favorite songs, I was amazed by how he strums the guitar perfectly and produce a good music. He serves as one of my inspiration that one day me too can play guitar like that. When Christmas season was coming I asked my father to buy me a guitar as his gift for me on Christmas day. My father was generous and he did not object my request. On the second week of December I saw a big gift place under our Christmas tree, even though guitar was not evident on the way it was wrapped and Christmas is still a few more days to go I still opened it and kudos! It was my guitar. Father just laughed at me when he saw me holding my new orange guitar. He senses my eagerness on learning how to play it. On the night that I opened it I already practice some basic chords with a little help from a songbook because there was a chord chart at the back of its cover. I find it so difficult on my first few days, my fingers are even hurting because the guitar strings were so hard to press. My timing was even off and I cannot even complete a single song. I become frustrated and sometimes I even think if I can still learn how to play. My frustrations are easily wiped out when I see some of my idols on TV, I said to myself “Man I really wanted to play guitar”. Months have passed and I am still studying how to play guitar every single day. It becomes my obsession, I always play after school, during weekends and during my spare time. I feel that I am improving, my friends also sees that. Before, I am the one who is asking for their time to teach me but now I am already the one who is teaching them the songs that I know. Years have passed and I am still playing guitar. I am already an intermediate guitar player and I am aspiring to be a pro, I know it will be difficult but I am ready to face the difficulties. I am very happy because I can play my favorite songs and sometimes I am composing my own music. I finally proved that nothing is impossible once passion, commitment and hard work are combined. You can be what you wanted to be if you set your mind into it.
