Dearest Guitar Pick

I'm going to keep this brief, you know how I feel about goodbyes. To start, I just want to say that its not you, its me. My style is evolving. My senses developing a taste for jazz, fingerstyle and flamenco and my fingers are developing an attachment to the strings and frankly, you're kind of getting in the way of that.

No, I shouldn't say that. Its just, we're both growing more and more apart and when we're together I feel like its more out of habit and comfort. To be honest with you, it makes me feel trapped; like I cant grow and develop my personal style if I stay with you. I'm dropping you and losing you more and more and its not like you're always around when I need you anyway.

I'm not gonna pretend like you didn't mean anything to me. We had some great times. You were my first for a lot of things..... You were there when I learned my first scales and my first chords. Hey, remember when we learned how to alternate pick together? Do you remember? All those nights....I was so frustrated and I felt like I hated playing guitar for a while. I thought we would never get it down at first..... but then eventually it just clicked. We clicked...

......but that was then, and this is now. I know it doesn't mean anything at this point, but I am sorry. Things have gotten out of hand (pun intended) and its time for us to part ways. I wish you the best of luck in the future and I hope we can still be friends.

Yours Truly
Spiderusalem


P.S. I'll put all the clothes you left at my place in some black plastic bags, then drop them off within the week. Please do the same for my things..
