Upstairs Guitar

The first guitar I bought was a $130 Maestro by Gibson.

It's a beginner or starter guitar for a new player or learner.

A while back I discovered a problem:::: the F Sharp on the G String didn't sound right. I had no idea why.

I had put the guitar into storage in case someone else in my family or friend group wanted to eventually learn to play guitar.

But yesterday I found the only person in my family who had the slightest desire to learn wouldn't do it for a long time.

So I felt it would be OK to take my guitar to a Thrift Store just to get rid of it --- to attempt to follow Jesus' teaching to sell and give to the poor.

So last night I took the guitar out of storage.

I tuned it up.

And I attempted to play O Canada --- in order to demonstrate how the F Sharp of the G String was not working.

But ---- I quickly found the F Sharp DID work this time. I have no idea why.

So months ago I had no idea why the F Sharp wouldn't work.

And today I have no idea why it is now finally working properly.

I have no idea what caused the problem or the fix.

But ----- now that the guitar is functional, I see no need to get rid of it ------ and my Mom seems to be OK with this idea -------

So my once-broken but now-fixed [for no apparent reason] beginner guitar will now be my upstairs guitar.


It's just the strangest thing. It wouldn't work for no reason, and for no reason, it became fixed. No idea.
