The Price I Paid by The Sooner the Better

I’m Shandi, my name rhymes with candy!

My Swiftie Story:
So way back when I was 12, I actually didn’t like Taylor at all. I didn’t like her voice. I've had a guitar since I was 12 (electric) but I only learned a few simple chords. Then when I turned 16 I got my 2nd guitar (acoustic) and that's when I really started learning how to play. My cousin was just learning how to play too. At the time I liked Love Story, but I wasn’t a Swiftie. So one of the songs we learned was Taylor's cover of Umbrella by Rihanna. My Taylor obsession began. I started learning a bunch of other Taylor songs, then when I started adding singing to the guitar parts I had learned, I realized how beautiful and amazing her lyrics are. From then on I learned practically every Taylor song ever.

Random Facts About Me!
I like the number 7
I'm 20
I didn’t learn guitar/start songwriting because of Taylor. I did it because of Aly and Aj.
I've been writing songs since I was 12
I’ve been playing guitar for about 8 years
I can also play ukulele, piano, and mandolin
I'm in an acoustic pop-punk band called The Sooner the Better (the song at the top of my profile is by us if you didn't notice)
I make youtube videos
I always wear mismatching socks

Some Favorite Things!

    I can only play the guitar but I'm currently in a hiatus because I want some time to expand my music interest outside pop music. What guitar brand are you using? I'm gonna buy a new one next month. I was also a fan of Tiffany Alvord when she released Legacy which I pre-ordered, it's a great album!
