Hi everyone, I thought that I would put a little info in here although I do not intend to start making progress logs into my guitar for a while as it’s simply to early.
So for posterity heres what I have and have in my head lol…
Bugle - age 13
Bell Lyre - unknown age.
My Instruments from here…
Electric Piano - self taught from age 25
Transcribed most of Enyas piano pieces way back when, and learnt to play them.
Really loved the piano and at the end of learning I was able to play the ABRSM old grade 5 pieces.
My favourite being Moonlight Sonata C#m.
The piano is rather old now like me haha and slowly it started to fail electronically.
Finally stopped playing pianos and keyboards sometime after I purchased my house.
Flute , Love the sounds but really never got into that beyond a few notes.
Accoustic Violin - had some great lessons with a tutor from Turkey.
Took and passed my ABRSM grade 1 about 8 years ago but due to expence I had to drop this.
The last instruments…I WILL LEARN BEFORE I RETIRE. !!!
A few Guitars were purchased about 3 or 4 years ago but work loads were crazy and time for such enjoyment was all but impossible.
The Guitars are…
Epiphone AJ accoustic
Gibson Les Paul Standard
Faith Blood Moon Venus (New)
So why these Guitars. As a youngster my parents place was always full of music ( I mean everywhere)
Dad was playing Rolling Stones , Fleetwood Mac, Dire straights, The Shadows Etc: and many more ,
Mum was mad keen on Country music, mostly John Denver so that was on in a different room lol
Eldest brother was at Grammer school and started - you guessed it , the Piano.
My music to date spans just about most genres you can name including some unconventional ones from european religious songs that I cannot understand a word of, to something akin Frence/African Lullaby that I cannot understand either. That doesn’t stop me liking what I hear.
I have no Idea what I will eventually like playing but browsing the plethora of songs available to learn for grade one I maked these…
Bad Moon Rising by Creedence Clearwater Revival
Breakfast at Tiffany’s by
Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door
A horse with no name
Fortunate for you folks , I will not be singing due to a medical issue, Phew, thats a relief I hear you say lol…
So, From here on a new Journey begins…
Thats all folks
To be cont…
This is really my partners for the love of Maggie May so I may look at this from time to time too.
