As most of you know, I am an amateur/hobby musician trying to improve and learn more about playing and recording every day. Below is my latest upload to SoundCloud. It’s a short acoustic piece played on my classical nylon-stringed guitar (2 or 3 separate tracks, I think.) I recorded it awhile ago and just came across it. I think it’s kinda pretty and I hope you like it too!
I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted to my blog. I’m always waiting for something “really important” to post or putting it off until the next day – which, as any procrastinator will tell you, never arrives. I apologize to my subscribers.
As I sit here waiting for news of Hurricane Sandy which seems destined to make a sharp left-hand turn right for my little home, I am filled with a sense of purpose: I am vowing to myself and my readers to make more frequent posts. My blog really means a lot more to me than just a hobby to be engaged in only when it’s convenient. This blog is my way of keeping in touch with the wide world; it’s my chance to sharpen my writing skills; and my way of sharing myself and my thoughts and ideas and music with others. It doesn’t have to be pretty it just has to be me. Somehow, I am constantly forgetting this truth.
So, if and when I survive the approaching storm, look for a more serious effort on my part to keep up with my blog. Again…many apologies for my frequent neglect and I send wishes for safety and protection to all of you sharing the threat of this storm with me.
