Friends playing guitar at the park.

My object is a guitar.  I started to play guitar because of my grandpa.  He was a guitar player in the 80s in Mexico.  I bought a guitar with my own money when I was 14 years old. My guitar is made from wood and has metal strings.  Now, I'm better and I play a style of music called Corridos Tumbados.  My favorite artist is Ariel Camacho.  After I came to the USA, I met my best friend Leonel and he inspires me to play guitar. I'm better than him but we both play guitar together. One day, I want to sing in my high school pep fest.  I feel nervous but that’s a good thing.  I hope to be a famous guitar player with my friend, Leonel.
