DIANE'S RESOLUTIONS/GOALS FOR 2007, NUMBER 12:

Learn to play a musical instrument.

I have to admit that this is a goal that is unlikely to be reached by me in 2007. I bought the used guitar about 5 years ago (along with every "learn to play guitar" book I could get my hands on), and it remains largely unplayed and in need of re-stringing. (It has occasionally come in handy to entertain male company - they like to play it, even if I cannot). I bought the ukelele on eBay 2 years ago after returning from Maui. I recently saw clarinets for sale at Target, too. In all honesty, a year from now I probably will take another photo, with the addition of a clarinet, and will still be unable to play any of these musical instruments.

Good for you. I'll see if I can find some info on guitar lessons that I read about on someone's blog. I think it was online lessons, or something you download. If I find it I'll forward it.

If you go with the clarinet, do you think Nanners and Noodles will be bothered by the high pitches?

Learn how to form a Barre chord. It's where the index finger and thumb create pressure on the fret and forms a distinct bridge. It's tough at first, as you have to develop strength to pinch all the stings at once.

But in the end, it's the fun way to play!

You and me both, Diane. My grandfather can play any instrument. I did not inherit his musical gift.

Well, I'm good with a piano... but that's it. And I get bored playing.
