Find your Guitar Hero: NIMI

I first met Nimi at his home in 2016 when I went to attend a local church meeting his family was hosting. The moment he discovered I could play the guitar, Nimi became excited around me, and he would often share with me all he knew about the guitar…and with all sense of humility, it was not much. But Nimi didn’t care. I remember how he would proudly show off to me a certain tune on the guitar. I later understood that so much loved tune of his was the theme song for SpongeBob Squarepants. Nimi was 8 years old.

Today, Nimi performs live before a live audience at his local church and has featured in a live music video performance alongside very talented instrumentalists. I wish I could take credit for Nimi’s progress, but Nimi last saw me in person about 3 years ago- so I can’t. Fine, Nimi had a supportive mother who was also a choir leader, and he was being taught music at school. But Nimi’s focus could have easily changed to something more exciting and rewarding, especially if people did not take his guitar playing seriously. But quite frankly, he seemed not to care what people thought. In fact, Nimi seemed to believe he was a Rockstar at the time.

And here you are…

You started learning the guitar because you really wanted to make music that will bless and put smiles on the faces of many. But after months (or probably years) of learning the instrument, you still keep playing to yourself in the comfort and privacy of your bedroom because you think you’re still not good enough. If that’s really you, then then you need to take a cue from Nimi and care less. Be less critical of yourself. Take that risk, stretch yourself, overcome your fear! Your first performance may not go as well as you planned it in your head, but it will be a huge motivator for the second attempt and the third.

Ofcourse, it would be wise to pick for your performance a song or part that is within your skill capacity. Fortunately, with the guitar, simple but beautiful scores abound, and have even been used in bestselling songs. So, don’t let stage fright make you think less of yourself, simply awaken the ‘Rockstar’ in you.
