Read through the following text and decide which words are missing:

I’ve always been interested _1_ learning to play the guitar. When I mentioned this to my friend she said she felt the same. We decided that we would buy a couple of cheap guitars and take some lessons.

The lady in the music store was very helpful. She gave us good advice _2_ choosing the right guitar for beginners. She said having a guitar that not only plays and sounds well but also appeals visually will motivation us play and practice.

Next we looked up some local guitar teachers online. We found someone in our neighbourhood _3_ was willing to take on some new students.

Learning to play was more difficult _4_ we imagined! There are a lot _5_ chords and notes to learn and by the end of the lesson my fingers were really hurting.

We are both determined to practise for 30 minutes every day. I’m looking forward _6_ learning to playing some of my favourite songs and even writing some of my own.
