Can I play the banjo?

As you might have figured out by now, Leslie comes from a VERY musical family. She loves music and loves to perform and sing out loud…so much so that I always joke with her that she doesn’t pay attention to me because she’s singing. Except it’s not really a joke. When she’s singing and not paying attention it’s called “Leslie World,” which seems to be hereditary since I know for sure that John and Ian also tend to drift away into their own worlds too. Como ya se han dado cuenta, Leslie viene de una familia MUY musical. A ella le encanta la musica y le encanta cantar en voz alta donde sea…tanto asi que siempre le digo de broma que nunca me pone atencion porque esta cantando. Excepto que no es broma. Cuando esta cantando y no poninedo atencion, se le llama “el mundo de Leslie”, algo que al parecer es hereditario ya que John e Ian tambien tienden a perderse en sus propios mundos muy seguido.
Personally, I am not very musically inclined but I would like to be able to play music with Leslie. I have entertained the thought of learning to play an instrument (singing is out of the question) before, and for some reason the sound of the banjo has caught my attention. I am definitely motivated to learn, but I know it is not going to be easy at all. Personalmente, no soy muy inclinado a la muscia pero me gustaria poder tocar un instrument con Leslie. He estado pensando en aprender a tocar algun instrument (cantar esta fuera de las opciones), y por alguna razon el sonido del banjo me ha llamado la atencion. Tengo ganas de aprender a tocarlo, pero se que no va a ser nada facil.
Luckily for me, John has a beginner’s banjo that I can borrow until I am sure this is the instrument I want to learn and I am ready to invest in a banjo upgrade. For now this banjo is perfect for me and hopefully soon I’ll be able to make it play some nice rolls. Por suerte para mi, John tiene un banjo de principiantes que puedo usar hasta estar seguro de que es el intrumento que quiero aprender y este listo para invertir en un mejor banjo. Por ahora, este banjo es perfecto para mi y ojala pronto pueda hacerlo producir sonidos placenteros.

Maybe in a couple of years (I’m being realistic about this, come on) Leslie and I will be playing music in the front porch with the dogs laying next to us. Hmm…I think the South has made a big mark on me… a Chilean playing the banjo in the front porch? We will see how that goes! Tal vez en un par de anos (estoy siendo realista) Leslie y yo estaremos tocando musica en el porch del frente de la casa con los perros hechados al lado nuestro. Hmm…creo que el Sur ha hecho una marca en mi…un Chileno tocando el banjo en el porch de la casa? Veremos como resulta!
