I learned to play acoustic guitar when I was in high school but not that I am expert though in a playing guitar. It is part of my dreams of playing a yamaha a3r guitar at guitar center to learn more about it. For me, it calms my soul when I play or hear instrumental of guitars.
Whenever I feel overwhelmed at the thought of getting heavy loads of work done in a knick of time, I always turn listening to the ensemble. Hoping to get a dose of my humanity back, I listen to instrumentals claiming I can still manage things. Initially, the first strum makes me feel good and back on working again. At the moment, it was a refreshing process. Eventually, the whole piece creeps in me to kick out bad feelings of hysteria and doubt of killing the tasks at hand.
Indeed, some people prefer to handle workload on some other way, but I guess mine is an irreplaceable part of me.
