This holiday is for getting out that old guitar you have laying around your house! You should not be nervous to dig out that guitar in your closet and start strumming. Most guitar players who have been playing for a long time learned at a young age but this should not make anybody unmotivated as this holiday is for anyone at any skill level. Do not be afraid to play in front of your friends or family as playing guitar is a great activity to do with multiple people. If you enjoy playing a few chords here and there, it might be a good idea to take some lessons as this might just be a new hidden passion you did not know you had!
