Teaching début

I filled in for my guitar instructor yesterday for a few classes (two beginner level classes and one intermediate level class). Quite an interesting experience. Occasions like this present great opportunities to learn about musical tastes, influences and cultures (especially since Georgia Tech has a sizeable international student mass). I even had a left-handed guitarist in one beginner's class. Of course, since the guitar is re-strung for left-handed playing, there's not much to instruction except getting the strumming and fretting hands right. The rest of the evening was the usual day in the life of PIGS (Poor Indian Graduate Student[s]): cook dinner (eat to survive), watch some TV, read a bit and turn in.
