Eric’s Academy of Music

Today we keep things rant-free. It’s Sunday and I have all week to deal with stupidity. I wanted to use today’s thoughts to promote a local business that I have recently come to work with. Eric’s Academy of Music.

After signing up with a handful of daily deal websites, I received an offer of actual value. No laser hair removals, no eye brow plucking… a voucher for music lessons from Eric’s Academy of Music in Orleans. FTW! Perfect, as I had a guitar wearing out the inside of a gig bag screaming to be wailed upon. I had been wanting to take lessons since the 90s Grunge-era and now I was finally going to rock. I would now lay down the air guitar in exchange for a proper axe.

I have already taken three classes, and wish I’d started earlier. Right from day 1 I began learning chords relative to songs I know and have an interest in playing. No Twinkle, Twinkle, no Jingle Bells. Metallica. Sweet. Since I am learning on acoustic, my choices are limited for easily playing Metallica, so I went  with Nothing else Matters. I learned the riff which was comprised of a few of the basic chords. From there I went to learning to play Wonder Wall. I’ve got the pieces of the track, I just need to string everything together. It’s pretty impressive how easy it is to learn when you have the right teacher. My teacher, Eric St-Cyr also happens to be the owner. Each class he showed me something new, yet added onto what I have previously learned. He kept my motivation high and for someone with the attention span of a 2 year-old riding a sugar high that says quite a bit. I haven’t yet learned the proper technique for crowd surfing or the most efficient methods for taking a guitar across a drum set but I trust in his teaching plans and look forward to the future.

For those of you looking to play guitar, or any other instrument, give Eric a call. Maybe we’ll end up forming a class bad together. Here is a list of names for us to mull over.

Liquid Stank
Your Mother’s Panties
Chamber of Boogers
Erectile Dysfunction

Be sure to drop my name; I can’t guarantee you any form of a discount, but increasing my fan base will bring me one step closer to having my blog adapted into a major motion picture. Where do you think I’m gonna go for the soundtrack?!

Rock on,
