It's been quite awhile, but sometimes one has to take a break to see what really is going on. I took several months off to find out what was next. Then while watching the show Nashville with everyone performing in an auditorium in Nashville itself, I realized that's what I want to do......perform with a guitar!!
The only problem is I don't really play the guitar. I fooled around with one almost 50 years ago, but I was far from knowing how to really play. But those of you who know me know that nothing stops me. I made the decisiion to get a guitar and to write songs and play them. When I would have enough in my repertoire I would have a little show called "Granny Rocks!!".
So that is what I have been working on for the last few weeks. I have written two songs----one called Nobody Talks Anymore, and another called Slowin' Down. My teacher however is also giving me classic songs to learn in order to get started. I play 'Slowin Down" like a pro, but parts of "Love me Tender" are really driving me nuts!!
I thought I'd tell you about all this so you'll understand why you haven't heard from me. I thought all this would be a 'piece of cake'------It isn't!! But I tell myself every single day--"you can d it! In a day filled with working out on machines; swimming; walking dogs; and dealing with all that's on the computer, I am practising my guitar. I just hope I don't smash it one day out of frustration...I never had to bend my fingers around anything like this.....but I find of course that with practise it actually works!
So let's just see if I can conquer this instrument which tucks under my boob in order to allow me to see all the notes. So far the machine is still here and so are my boobs and I've actually written words and music to one song and am singing with it!!
Long story short I am a work in progress and it will take time before I can entertain you all. But please stay turned because I am determined that it will happen. And understand if I am not readilly available these days.....I am simply busy "playing my guitar"!!
