The first instrument that I played was the guitar. I was in high school hanging out with a bunch of guys who loved rock and punk music. They played guitar everyday. It didn't take long for me to join them. I remember that week when I got my first guitar I couldn't wait to get home to play it. I played the song that I really liked. I mastered the chords. And that's all I played for days. That helped me build my confidence and pretty soon it created momentum. Then I started learning new songs.
