Do It Myself
My today’s achievement is …
Put on guitar strings on my own guitar
Today I get my daddy to bring me to a music shop, of course to repair my Pablo (my 12 years old guitar). I named it Pablo from the Pablo Picasso (that great oldman artist). Pablo’s tuning keys is rusted so bad and so the string, people called it “dead strings”.
But too bad, the music shop near my house is not doing any repairing job, they only sell instrument 😦 So I bought a new set of tuning keys (it cost only 3 bucks) and a set of acoustic guitar strings (I bought the cheap one only 2 bucks). The shopkeeper said that Pablo is a good guitar and ask me why I’m buying a cheap strings and tuning keys, he told me to go to another bigger shop to buy a good string and good tuning keys for Pablo (the more it’s good the more expensive it would be). He said “poor Pablo” for having such a cheap string OTL
Actually I have decided myself that if I could play 10 songs with Pablo nicely, I would buy a brand new good guitar as a reward, or maybe put a great strings and great tuning keys (the expensive one) on Pablo so he would look more gorgeous. I hope that day will come soon. 😉
Dad says that he will help me with the new tuning keys and it was done marvelously well.
The tuning keys is done with the brand new one, but my dad can’t help me with the strings. So I had to do it myself. I thought it was hard to do but it’s not at all, it’s quite easy. All you have to do is open your Youtube 😀 there are a lot of good people who willing to teach you how to put on guitar strings. It was done very well, though I haven’t cut the unnecessary string left.
I didn’t cut the unnecessary string left because I’m not sure yet. I will tune Pablo with guitar tuner first then I will cut it with 1 inch left. And Hey! Pablo looks nice with the brand new tuning keys and strings!! 🙂
So the lesson today might be “put your effort on it and nothing impossible”. You go girl! 😉
Ps. Thanks to activemelody’s video on youtube, I can get myself putting the strings on. 😀
