My Favorite Rockstar ☆ Paper Jamz Guitar

March 30, 2011

My second daughter is in love with this guitar by Paper Jamz at our neighbor’s. She says “I like to jammy jam”. She sees her daddy play the guitar, so inevitably she has been interested in it. Every time we go to our neighbor’s house for a play date, she always goes to it, puts the strap around her shoulder, bends her right knee a bit so that she can place the guitar and rocks. When I pointed the camera at her, her tongue came out. That’s what she does lately when she feels shy. I might have to get this eventually online. I saw that Amazon sells it for about $15. I want one for myself, too. I know, take a lesson with a real guitar, right? I should.

次女の最近のお気に入りは、このご近所さんのギター。「ジャミージャムするの〜(jamは音楽を演奏するという意味)」パパがギターを弾くのを見ているから、興味を持つように。ご近所の家に遊びに行くと、いつもこのギターを手に取り、ストラップを肩に掛け、右膝なんかちょっと曲げてギターを乗せ、演奏の物まね。カメラを向けたら、舌をなんか出して。最近照れると舌を出すように。このPaper Jamz(ペイパージャムズ)のギターをいずれ買ってあげたいな、なんて思ってます。アマゾン・ドット・コムで米ドルで15ドルくらいの値段で売っているのを見つけた。自分にも欲しいくらい。ギターのレッスン受けなさいって?思い切って習った方が良いかもね。

This is the second time I write in Japanese. I am thinking if I should start writing both in English and Japanese. The thing is that I don’t always have the time to write in both languages. I wanted to try this time as today’s post is very short. It was not easy. This could be very short-lived, so I apologize in advance if this post ended up being the last post in Japanese in a long time!! Please advise!

このブログに日本語で書くのは今回で2回目。今まで英語だけだったけれど、日本語と英語両方で書いた方が良いのかな?なんて思うこのごろ。ただ、いつも日英両方で書く時間がある訳でもないので(日本語が読めない人にとっては結構見ずらいかも、などという心配も)、何とも言えない。今日トライしてみたのは、今回の記事がとても短かったから。でもこれだけ短くてもしんどかった。2カ国語で書く挑戦にすぐに挫折してしまうかも。この記事の後しばらく日本語で記事を書かないことになってしまったとしたら、ごめんなさい!アドバイスありましたら、よろしく!

    Adorable!! There are some very good guitar teaching CD’s for the computer. I bought one and it was very easy to follow.
    I love the Japanese with the English! I feel very “international”.

    I am also considering to write both in French and English… time consuming and I cam up with the idea of perhaps having one or two posts a week with the French translation to start with and see what the response is…

    はじめまして。いつもブログを拝読させていただいてます。素敵な写真ばかりですね~
    文章は、私には、英語の勉強のため(笑)なので、日本語があればうれしいけど、なくても大丈夫です。
    kahoさんの負担にならない程度で。
    私は、去年の6月にジャカルタにきました。ジャカルタの様子や情報、ブログから楽しみにしてます。

    Writing in Japanese seems as tough as writing in Chinese…and I am still learning Chinese but not sure if I’ll ever get to the stage where I can write..sigh!! The lil rocker is super cute, how I envy you – all the time you get to spend with her day in day out ;)

      You can play this Paper Jamz without a lesson. :) I wish I took guitar lesson when I was younger.

    Your girls are just super adorable!! I love how she sticks out her tongue!! Miss you guys!!
    As for translation, I am guessing it will be very time consuming! I almost always post stuff in English because Japanese speakers usually understand at least a little English but not the other way around. And I’m just too lazy to translate… But if you are not as lazy I’m sure there are a plenty of people who appreciate your time and effort :-)

      Thank you!! It is time consuming! What you wrote is exactly the reason why I have only written in English. When I write in two languages, it’s interesting to realize how they way I want to write in each language is different.
