Our newest hobby

For Christmas, Ted gave me something I didn't ask for and wouldn't have guessed in a million years...an electric guitar!! Why, you might ask? Is Ted really a glutton for punishment? That remains to be determined, but, the actual reason was because it was autographed by all of the members of the band Daughtry (who I LOVE). And while I love it for all of it's Daughtryness, there just seemed something wrong with letting such a great gift just hang on the wall. So... I have decided to learn how to play the guitar. Go ahead and laugh. One day I'll probably look back at this post and laugh as well. But, for now, I'm determined and have learned how to play the chords A, C, D, E, and G. I'm struggling a bit with B and F. My fingers just don't bend that way...
Beyond the benefit of me bettering myself musically is that we also have something new to do as a family. I play the electric guitar, Ted plays his acoustic guitar and Madigan plays her Backyardigans guitar. We're considering starting a band.
I mean don't you just think of hard-core rockers when you think of the Bowsmans? (Check out Madigan's rocker hairdo!)
I'll keep you posted and let you know when we go on tour :)

So we want to see a you tube video of this.... :) I can't get my fingers to bend right to hit some of the chords either, not sure I ever will! :) Can't wait to see the Bowsman Band go on tour

I love it! We should get together for a jam session, Madigan and I can play tambourine :)

I'll buy tickets to your first show! :) Jeff tried to learn to play the guitar...that lasted about 2 months. Hopefully you'll do better!

Justin thinks you have a career future, maybe with ZZ Top, you just need to work on the beard!!
