On reflection, I suppose there is a greater sign of creeping Fogey-hood than watching classic sports films. It is this:
I bought this with an Amazon gift certificate my dad gave me. I logged on intending to buy some books and CDs I was behind on, but then I saw that Amazon has a category for "Musical instruments." That got me thinking.
And $250 later, I have everything I need to be a major league guitar player. Except I don't know how to play the damned thing.
Fortunately, there is software to help one do this, so I am learning slowly. If all music involved nicely executed G, D, and A7 chords, I would now be a Claptonesque guitar god. Otherwise, I may have a way to go.
I do hope this completes the midlife crisis.
