Practice

A Poem by Chloe Hodges

Their fingers glide so precisely, so deliberately down the neck. The sound that resonates brings me into an awe. Suddenly I'm dumbfounded by the breadth of their self-control, their patience, the outcome. I long, I envy to produce such a melodious sound. As for now, I sit. I sit here in my melancholy. My perseverance is thinning and my willingness along with it. I want to pursue my aspiration, yet I am only to feel deflated with my lack of accomplishments. Sometime soon shall I resume this game of effort. All in hope of producing the sound that once brought that inspiration into my longing heart. For now, I wait. I wait for my insecurities and stubborn ways to perish and dissipate, leaving only determination. In the near future I too shall slide my fingers gracefully down this instrument letting it speak its beauty. I too shall speak to another in need of a goal just as i did. I too, in the ending of all of this frustration will also posses patience and a passion greater than the troubles that may occur.

Author's Note

Chloe Hodges
Wrote this a couple days ago. I was sitting in my room playing (well attempting to play) my guitar. I became really frustrated with my lack of progress to the point where i was wanting to cry! So instead of wasting time and dealing with in in a not so constructive way, i decided to write about how i felt. This was the outcome.

I love this piece and can relate to it. As a musician I understand all too well the trials and tribulations of learning a new instrument. Like writing, playing an instrument well takes many consistent hours of practice and refining. Don't be dashed by a lull in your patience; the time will come when you are ready to approach the instrument in a way that will allow to learn its secrets. The key is to work through the lulls. Good luck and good write!!!
