“I have been playing acoustic guitar for some time now. I picked it up as a hobby back in my high school days. The initial passion I had for it has by now subsided, which is unfortunate, to say the least. I still do play guitar sometimes, when I have the time to enjoy it really, but nowhere near as when I was younger. The guitar playing was the thing that made me one of the cooler members of my crew. Whenever there was a party thrown at someone’s place, I would be the person to call. Regardless of how amazing someone’s sound system is, there is something magical about playing guitar while everyone in the room sings. It just brings in positive energy, the sense of unity. Apart from this, I loved it when I was able to play people’s favorite songs while they would sing. It was a way of pleasing people which I did not mind at all.”
