You see, I was never a Beatles fan and the first time I've ever heard of the song "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" was from the famous Jake Shimabukkuro Youtube video. At first I thought the song was about the guy playing the 'ukulele so well that it makes a guitar weep. Of course, that couldn't have been further from being correct as I found out shortly after.
As you can see from the picture, my guitar is sitting in the middle of the stairway down to the basement. The fence there is to keep my kids and dog from going down there. Since the basement is unfinished, no one really needs to go down there anyway. I bought that guitar about 8-9 years ago from Guitar Center thinking I would learn how to play it. It turned out that I strummed it maybe 3 times before lending it to people at my church to play it. It sat unplayed at the church for the past few of years so I brought it back home last year. It had been moved around a few times but other than a few courtesy strums, it sits unplayed in the gig bag. In some ways my original assumption for the song "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" can be applied to this case. I play my 'ukuleles so much that I don't ever think about learning the guitar. So in my case, my guitar is truly weeping while I hack away at my 'ukuleles.
Anyway, I thought that picture and the stupid story could be worth a chuckle. If not, know that I take the word "ghetto" in this blog seriously and a lame story like this should be expected once in a while....:P
