When I was 12 years old, I bought a beat-up old electric guitar for 50 dollars.
I didn’t know how to play the guitar, but I wanted to be a guitarist. I decided that once I got one I could teach myself.
So I started.
I was terrible at it, but I was determined to get better, so I practised.
Little by little, I started to improve, but it was hard. My fingers hurt. I spent lots of time feeling frustrated. My parents were sick of the sound of it.
But I had a special advantage.
