I went through a phase where I was determined to learn the guitar.. 4 years ago. I was very disciplined, and practiced every day. What motivated me was taking the lesson weekly, and sitting down with my instructor, Jimmy. I eventually stopped taking the lessons, hoping I would continue on, without his support. But not having someone to play with, and having many other hobbies and projects, it slowly turned into less and less practice. I've been meaning to pick it up again. I really loved that time I spent working on it.
