Just daydreaming thinking of the future and wondering what hopes and dreams others have?

One of mine is to be a better bass player and play live in a band, not for profit and not too stressful obviously. 

Anyone else perhaps wanting to achieve something they've never previously had time for?

    @leeCal I hope your daydream can become a reality 🎶 🙏

    I can’t read music 🎼  (don’t really want to), can’t sing 🎤 (my voice is flatter that flatter 😂) but would love to be able play guitar properly.

    I am currently trying to learn with an old hohner acoustic but it takes me ages to learn 😂 - I wish I could learn more easily. But I just love playing with the strings. 

    Currently trying to learn Sinatra’s ‘My Way’ fingersyle as I would love to play it for my Dad. 😊

    Helping children to read in school  Teddy is very positive thing to do it myself helping children to read in school.  If you can read you can learn.

    That's a great idea @Teddybear12, I hope your ambition is realised.

    @katz23 good luck with your strumming, I play bass because my fingers are too big for a six string!  :)

    Thank you @leeCal

    I love Bass. tried Bass when I was a young teenager but my mum used to flick switch on fuse box so I sold my guitar 🎸🤷‍♀️

    I’m amazed by 12 string too but I couldn’t do one of those.
