Guitar - a new meditation

Rodrigo y Gabriela at La Scala London

I have once again, let my Tai Chi practice waver a little. Do not despair, the resultant vacuum has not been filled by tv or drugs. I have picked up my classical guitar again, having lessons and even blogging about it in my Guitar Blog.

Guitar practice is a great meditation. I can lose myself for hours practicing. I am trying to learn how to play like Gabriela of Rodrigo y Gabriela - yes that Gabriela. I am completely rubbish in my attempt to emulate the Mexican guitarists chops, but am enjoying learning - which is the most important thing, IMHO

I expect I'll be back to Tai Chi and other meditations real soon.
