“I’ve been playing guitar a lot lately and trying to learn new songs. It feels like it gives me meaning to learn songs and do something that makes me feel good about myself. [I’ve been playing guitar] for about three years. I take lessons, but I teach myself most of the songs I know. I like learning acoustic songs that are slower and prettier to listen to, that sort of thing.

I listened to classic rock a lot when I was younger. I wanted to be like the guitarists I heard playing because they were so cool; I went into my storage unit and found the old guitar in there and started playing.”
