Music Practice - A Video Blog

Saturday, November 12, 2011

I have the flu today and feel miserable. I skipped Body Pump, but did get in some practice time. I decided to be brave and record a piece of my practice session for my Music Maker's challenge to write one blog about music each month in March.

This is a falsetta from a (flamenco) Solea I am working on.

Neither the video nor the practice session are stellar, but I hope you enjoy a little window into my music practice. At least you can see how pretty my guitar is. I am so in love with it!

    Thank you, my friends. I was very shy about posting this, I still haven't worked myself up to playing more than folk songs in front of people.

    Lovely classical flamenco playing!

I had some basic classical lessons AGES ago, remember a few things. But mostly I still own my one & only guitar a Yamaha classical guitar. I tend to play a mixed bag of jazz, folk & pop...mostly self-taught. I've ALWAYS loved the mellow sound of the classical nylon-stringed guitar. Steel-strings just sound too tinny to me. Plus I LOVE Brasilian Bossa Nova and it really only "works" on the classical nylon-stringed guitar, IMHO.

    I don't play anything but piano ( and not even that for too long emoticon ), but I love, love, love the sound of a guitar. From what I just heard here, I was mesmerized! You're doing quite well! Way back when I was young and I attempted (by myself) to learn guitar, I only learned a few chords. To even think of playing strings separately was something I figured I'd learn way in the future ( never did). I really admire you for pursuing instruction and learning so much!! It's a great stress buster to play music. Keep up the great work. Hope you feel better very soon!
It IS a beautiful instrument, too! emoticon

    Great, I was tapping my toes!
That was my house gowing up, 3 of 4 of us playing all the time. I miss it. I played for Lucas...he's has been in a music class since 4 months and is so fascinated with strings. He sits in your lap or stands next to you. I gave him his uke, which he revered for about 20 minutes, then it became a weapon. Kids. emoticon
