Good morning! Just this side of nine on this sunny Friday-the-13th. Not overly superstitious myself, but I do look over my shoulder a bit more than I would ordinarily. My brother was born on a Friday-the-13th, and during an electrical storm. I think he likes that story- gives him kind of a Frankenstein vibe.
Music news. I've gotten creative with the practicing. and have a few different things to share on YouTube. One is a folky thing, with big gooey chords- lotsa those nice open-string sonorities going. It's already up, and is called Folky Dokey.(My song titles are either silly or totally boring and utilitarian. Silly usually wins.) Something I don't do that often, the folky stuff, but have fun when I do. More to come there.
As well as cuts from here in the Music Lab, I have a few from local gigs. Trying to build that up as I can. There's one from last Friday's gig at Anchors Away, two from a gig a few months ago at the Curve Inn, and a handful from the Winery on Wabash(name escapes me)maybe a year ago. And I may post more from last Friday, depending on whether or not I like my playing on there.
The guitar is getting a lot more action lately. Sounds funny when I put it that way, doesn't it? But I have been knuckling it these days. I think much of facility on the instrument is just having it in your hands, to where it becomes second nature. That's why the hours are necessary.
Not much else to report. Everything around here is working, at least for now. Just enjoying my nice quiet boring retired life. Thanks as ever for stopping in and reading. Happy Friday-the-13th! Ich bin outa here. More later.
