Easy playing

Postby welder4 » Fri May 12, 2017 10:50 am

There is a lot to be said about the acoustic guitar the sound and the feel . but sometimes it is better to go with what is easy. I was fortunate enough to have a Fender strat that is 28 years old that is like a new one, little dent and not noticeable. any way I garnered the courage to play it again and was surprised at how quick I adjusted to the feel and the playing of it . I am going back to my first love and that is old rock and some surf music . Will I go back to the acoustic , Yes! but I will keep both at my side so I will not give up the best two instruments I have . Pipeline , Sleepwalk, Memphis, Walk don't run, and so many more I used to play . I actually recorded "Nothing to it" on the fender, back up also and it turned out ok . Enjoy that music you love, life is short so learn all you can and this is a great place to learn.

Ken, that's great! Play whatever makes you happy and what you enjoy, the important thing is to keep playing! Just keep us all posted here on the BB forum.

Thanks,

I have always enjoyed listening and hearing from you. I admire your fortitude and your sense of humor as well. I am really impressed that you keep playing and I have been somewhat inspired by your determination. Don't stop!! God bless.

What you and Mike said could not have come at a better time, The stinking meds failed me again I felt good for a few weeks may two and now I am almost back where I was . I will overcome this with the Lord's help. You know you are getting old (to 0ld) when you sit at a stop sign waiting for it to change to green. I actually did this, I did not sit long but long enough LOL.

Hang in there Ken. I bet it is frustrating, but having you around is worth the effort :D Get those meds worked out. I love the story about waiting for the stop sign to turn green. It sounds like something I would do.

"I love the story about waiting for the stop sign to turn green."

Me too. Sounds like a good line in a bluegrass song.
