Staying Creative and Learning a New Skill

Happy Monday, Ladies! We're getting super pumped for the holidays over here... and holiday shopping! And Holiday Food! Basically we're just excited for all of it! As this pregnancy progresses I'm starting to get a bit uncomfortable and tired, so I'm also looking forward to a week off with no school or work. However, while I may be lacking physical energy my mind is still racing with ideas for new projects and hobbies. If my brain were an internet browser It would have about 20 tabs open right now, with plans to redecorate, remodel, bake, write, paint and play. It's that magical second trimester energy combined with a touch of nesting, I suppose. But pregnant or not, it's always a good idea to keep learning new things, which is why I was super pumped to partner with Fender this week!

Fun Fact about me: I've always had a secret desire to be a musician. Not the high school version of me that played a mediocre 3rd chair clarinet. But the kind of creative soul that could just whip out their guitar and start singing when the desire struck. The thing about learning a new instrument, though, is there is a major lack of convenience. When I was younger, learning an instrument meant getting your parents to drive you to lessons every week, outside of all the other extra curriculars. Once I was older, my adult life got in the way. Thankfully, technology is on my side now and I can have a personal tutor right at my fingertips on demand.

The Fender Play app is awesome for a million reasons, but in short, it can teach a complete novice (i.e. Me) how to play their first song on the guitar, bass or ukulele in just 22 minutes. When you open the app you're given a choice of music genres to pick from, whether you're a folk fan or a wannabe pop star. After choosing your style, you start down a guided path of professional, bite sized videos that take you from the very basics and eventually lead you to a catalog of popular songs to master.

But Here's The Real Tea:
Since getting our guitar last Christmas I've tried other at home programs and I can tell you that the Fender App is by far the most user friendly of the ones I've tried.

After only a few days of 5 to 10 minute sessions with the app I already feel  my creative juices flowing more in every aspect of my life. Not to mention, taking those few minutes to focus on something fun and just for me is a MAJOR stress reliever. Also, if it's possible... I think my fingers are getting stronger? 😂  Other benefits to learning an instrument include increased self-expression,  patience, confidence, work ethic and stronger hand eye coordination! Who doesn't want that in their life?

You can check out a short clip of my first time trying out the app here;

And I highly encourage you to give yourself a creative and mental boost with Fender by downloading the app for a free 14 day trial! If you decide to stick with the app after those 14 days, you'll also get a 10% discount on all fender products for the entirety of your annual plan. I really hope you check it out and love it as much as I do!

Now, I'm off to practice. I promised Holland I would learn to play that Moana song she's obsessed with. Wish me luck! 😘
