Musical obsessions

My obsession with A Great Big World continues. Alicia and I have been listening to the album pretty much nonstop. On the way to dropping her off at her friend's house on Monday for her camping trip this week, we both realized that I could totally play, "I Don't Wanna Love Somebody Else," on my guitar.



I've been working on my fingerpicking for the past couple months, so it seems like the ideal song. Plus, it's forcing me to play F and Bb, which I usually avoid at all costs. The recital is in August, so I should be more than comfortable with it by then. The thing is, Jon, my guitar teacher, now wants me to sing while I play. Which, okay, it's not a difficult song. But the only place I sing anymore is in the car. I can say no, but Alicia has been bugging me from the start to sing along with whatever I ended up playing. I'm getting pressured from both sides. I'll probably end up breaking. Damn it.
