Hitting the Right Notes
Hi everyone, it's Kenn here.
A lot of you know by now that I have taken up playing the guitar as a hobby of mine. In fact, some of you even attended my first ever live performance at our Christmas Party in December. Now, I have been practicing a little bit whenever I find the time, but the more I play, the more I come to enjoy it. So much so in fact, that a few weeks ago, a friend of mine invited me to play guitar together with him in Ishinomaki!
He took me to a restaurant in a really rural part of Ishinomaki city, where the owners have a small stage set up for customers to bring their own instruments and do impromptu shows - it was really unique and I loved the atmosphere! I would love to go there again someday, but unfortunately, I don't own a car.
The owners made really fantastic drinks and curry for us while we set up our instruments and had an amazing, relaxing time just playing guitar and singing. I haven't actually played guitar for a long amount of time - only about 7 or 8 months, but everyone's energy and positivity gave me a huge boost of inspiration so I felt totally comfortable even if I made a mistake when playing my songs.
I'd love for a chance to play guitar for all of you too. Let's make a deal: I'll practice guitar if you all practice English for me - that seems like a fair trade! Thanks a lot for reading and I'll see you next time! Stay tuned!
