San Myshuno was littered with busking stands, and so Darrin jumps up on one, pulling out his guitar, and he performs. The songs are gentle, strummed, with minor keys and strange tones that build to an unusual sound. A few people gather to listen, Marco included. He watches for a while, and he’s touched that the first person in the house Darrin has decided to perform for is him.
And he’s genuinely good. Marco watches and starts to smile.
The hardest finger to train for guitar is the thumb. You don’t use it for actually playing notes, but the thumb on the left hand is responsible for enabling proper posture and flexibility, and the thumb on the right hand, besides just plucking bass lines, is responsible for letting strings ring or dampen.
Using the right hand thumb for the latter purpose is the hardest thing to train. You have to train your thumb to move to specific strings but *not* play. It doesn’t sound like it’d be too hard, but it’s actually a rather difficult and counterintuitive thing to do.
I'm 16, non-binary, and like 5'8" (that's what it says on my driving permit, at least). I have short brown hair and blue/green eyes. Struggling AP student™. Possible future music major, plays piano and guitar, loudest voice in the choir (what can I say, I was trained in theatre), learning song composition. That one junior that's basically the emotional counselor for all the emo freshmen. Unofficial captain of the archery team, and all of the 5th grade archers' favorite babysitter.
You seem to be so cool? I’m such a dork lmao but you’re so interesting like you do a lot of stuff I know nothing about, I’d listen to you talking abt the things you like!! (I said you a lot of times lol)
It’s funny because lots of people irl see me as a very guitar rock driven person when in fact a song can just win my heart if it includes perceptible basslines, captivating piano melodies (organ and synth harmonies too) or saxophones
