Beautiful rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Celeste! Thanks for sharing that.
TLN4U, the pic you posted looks just like my guitar. I got it as a gift in high school, and I believe it's the only physical object I still possess from that time that isn't in a cardboard box somewhere.
I was getting very into playing guitar for a while. I got a game called Rocksmith that lets you hook up a real guitar to your video game console and interactively teaches you to play songs step by step. Unfortunately I had to stop because my fingers began hurting in strange ways. In fact, has anyone who plays guitar heard of the bellow happening as a result of playing guitar?
I began to feel a strange pressure/discomfort in the knuckle closest to my fingertip when I would press down on a string. Also, when I push my finger sideways, even lightly, I began to feel a strange discomfort in the top part of my finger.
Just wondering if any guitar players have experience or heard of the above. I really hope to resolve the issues with my hand so I can pick up the guitar again and get good enough to play somewhere local. It's always been something I've wanted to do.
