I love my 1st hour class SOO much! My teacher was talking about how we are SUPPOSED to write an essay type thing on what we've learned in guitar I & II at the end of the year, but he said instead of that, he'd rather have us write a song. WOOP! WOOP! He's like, "For you song writers, I want it to be something you've written for THIS CLASS. I don't want you to use something you have previously written!" and he just looks at me and says "Yes, I am referring to you Ciarra." hahah. I fuckin' love him! I'm going to be so bummed next year that I'm not going to have him. :[
Oh, and we have to do this ensemble type thing for class too. We each get to pick a song of our own, then we get put in groups. So, someone plays melody for the song they picked then the other two people play the bass and chords for that song. Well, this kid picked "We Are The Champions" and my God the chords are fuckin' ridiculous! You have to play like, F#dim, Edim, Bbm9dim5 etc. I HATE DIMINISHED CHORDS WITH A PASSION! I don't even know how to play most of the chords is this song!
We were going over the songs together and Mr. Padgett looked at the music for "We Are The Champions" and said, "Oh, Lee whoever is in your group is going to HAAAATE you!" and I told my friend Michael "With my luck, I'm going to be in his group and I'll be the one playing the chords," and at the end of class Mr. Padgett said, "Ciarra, I think I'm going to have you play the chords for this song." and I'm like D:!!!! YOU WOULD! So, later that day I told Lee, "If Mr. Padgett was serious about me playing the chords for your song, I am going to hate you for life!" hahah. He replied and said, "You are the best guitarist in the class. If you do not play the chords, then Mr. Padgett is the only one that could attempt it, and I am sure he would have trouble as well..." Dude, if he can't fuckin' play it, THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL I'D BE ABLE TO! D:
I think this is just Mr. Padgett's way of getting back at me for calling him Chad. xD
