How did you get acquainted with guitar playing?


Jim Lim, a local music veteran once jokingly said that I look more like a guitarist than a pianist. I guess I took his words too seriously and got him to pick my first guitar for me. He grabbed a Taylor, and I paid for it (...of course)... Haha! Pocket burnt.
