Shameless Plug for a Guitar Hero

Like I said the other day, I have been taking guitar lessons for a little over a year now. It's been a lot of fun. It's a great escape from all the other stuff I do from day-to-day (you can only program and read and watch sports so often). I feel like it opens up the creative part of my brain, and as someone who loves to listen to music, it's just kind of fun to actually MAKE some once in a while.

Now I am not necessarily predisposed to being a good musician, so the fact that I have made any progress is a true testament to my awesome guitar teacher, Dan Cohn. I strongly recommend that anyone in the DC area who is interested in giving guitar a try, be it electric, acoustic, classical or not, to check him out! He makes lessons fun, and every week you learn something new. His website is full of testimonials from real guitarists talking about he has taken them to the next level, but he's every bit as good about getting you started. The best thing he did was ask for a CD of music you like, so that he can teach you in a way that will get you playing those songs.

Go take lessons today!

Disclaimer: I didn't get any free lessons or anything to post this - just wanted to note that Dan's awesome. Part of my 2009 resolutions are about recognition of things that are excellent.
