Playing Guitar

Playing Guitar

I’ve been playing guitar for almost 50 years. There’s probably not a day passes without me having a pick or a strum. Nothing serious, more as a hobby. It was something I always wanted to do. I have more than one and they’re kept in various rooms in my house. Wherever I am in the house, I can pick one up and play.

A few days ago, during a quiet few moments, I picked up one of my guitars and started to play a tune I had written back in the 1970s. That tune has never left me and although it’s only very short, after 40 odd years I can still recall every note. I hope you enjoy it too.

30 Seconds Of My 40 Year Old Tune

It’s so easy to record everything nowadays and that includes yourself playing guitar. So, a quick setup of my camera and just over 30 seconds later, my couple of bars of 40 year old tune are added to posterity. I posted it to my personal Facebook page and the response has been overwhelming! I had so many nice comments from some people who are respected in the music business. From all over the world too. Quite astonishing.

I Can’t Sing For Toffee

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my 30 seconds of old tune finished off with a bit of Paul Simon. I’m wondering if I should make more guitar videos. I can’t sing for toffee, so everything would just be instrumental. I’ll just have to see. Isn’t life strange at times? Then again, it would be pretty boring if it wasn’t. Meanwhile, I must get on with my blog! Now what was that tune I made up in 1980?

If you want to learn to play guitar, there is now so much free information out there on the likes of Youtube. Just search.

I'd love to hear from you

    I’ve been in Texas for the past couple of weeks, where I watched this video but couldn’t comment on my darn phone – just had to stop by again to say how much I enjoyed it.
