My fingers hurt, the cats are hiding and still can't play the guitar

With the rain this week thwarting some of my outside project plans, I have tried to play a little more guitar than I usually do, which is hardly any at all.

I am in familiar spot as far as I can tell by reading articles about struggling guitarist. I know most of the major open chords and am pretty comfortable with using different strum patterns, but I can't change quickly or cleanly for that matter, between chords and it gets me a little frustrated and I put the guitar back in it's stand.

I guy I know gave me some advice I am going to follow, play the entire song, don't quit no matter how bad you mangle it, play it to the end. You will get better.

So the cats and the goat had better find a place out of earshot, I am going to keep playing.

It could be worse, you could have taken up the violin.
