I don't know how many years now I've been saying I wanted to learn to play the guitar. My first attempt in 2006 failed, and all the years that followed. I just ordered an Ibanez AEG10E and it should be here within the week. Hopefully forcing the instrument in front of me in conjunction with all the free time we have out here will force me to finally accomplish this goal. I have a lot of ambition and eagerness to start things, but unless I place myself in a situation where I have little choice other than to continue, I'm quick to drop them.
I guess once I start adapting to the traits I already know about myself I can get over these humps and move on.
