Instead I've been alternating between guitar & programming. I've got the bass line to Nirvana's Come as You Are down, as well as the chords & melody to Blink 182's Damnit.
Been trying a few Tom Petty songs too but even the easiest ones are difficult in that one or two chords require stretching an obscene distance. I was playing along to Free Falling the other day, but I can't do the Bsus/addE chord (224400)
Update: 6:07 am: The rain woke Chuck up and he went outside to cover his workout bench with a tarp. He heard me playing and knocked on my door, but I couldn't hear him since I had headphones on. I then went to close my window at the same moment his head was right in front of it... fucking spooked the shit out of both of us. Me moreso, I think. Anyway, now he's going to learn "Damnit" and we can play the two parts together.
