i am coming along just swimmingly with my gee-tar lessons although i'm having a difficult time tuning the freakin' thing. it's hard, sister. believe me. anyway, i can play a multitude of melodies that kinda sound like "free fallin'", "house of the rising sun" (my fav) and "brown-eyed girl". i'll get through an entire song and say to craig "that was supposed to be "hotel california". can you tell?" and which point craig will say something super nice like "of course, i thought that all along". liar liar pants on fire. i also keep wondering aloud when i'll be able to play an electric gee-tar and craig kindly recommends that i should just concentrate on acoustic right now. hurmph.
i have two names picked out for my band. we're getting together in 2020. i like "ordinary garbage" but it might clash with the already popular band "garbage". i also like "rubber band hand band" - kinda folky and fun. that name was culled from a previous attempt to name my friend william's band in 1995. totally disregarding "rubber band hand band", he went with "rita" (who had their first and last concert at my 21st b-day party).
my gee-tar teacher has a quotation at the bottom of her emails - it says "if you can talk, you can sing. if you can walk, you can dance". she obviously never met someone as uncoordinated and tone deaf as me.
