What I've Been Up To (among other things)...

No seriously, check this out. Give it a chance. The whole thing.
I was hard on myself during this video, but after I watched it, I realized.
Practice makes perfect. This kicks ass. :)
But I'm sorry that I've been rudely reclusive. Problems, money and otherwise.
Also I flat out don't have the money for Pete's blog. His new blog wasn't good timing for me, financially...
Not blogging anyone did wind up being a creatively productive time for me. :)
I am sorry, though, for not keeping in touch, returning concerned emails. I didn't realize it had been that long since I'd blogged anyone, or even posted something to say that I was ok! No excuses.
I need to try and be better about emailing people, at the least. :(

Did you watch the video, a premiere of my original finished song Soylent Blues?
Do you plan on leaving a comment, or a hello?
Do you see the little metal can below the screen with the slot on the top of it?
Please deposit 2 quarters into the slot.
Hehehe...just kidding.
I couldn't resist. ;)

Hi Lisa!
I thought you did great! I'm glad to hear that you're doing OK. I've just wrapped up another semester at my college. Lately I haven't picked up my guitar, although I did get the chance to play Guitar Hero III! That game is a lot of fun! But it really is hard! At the end, my fingers hurt like they do when I play a real guitar!

I haven't been able to keep up with blogging either! I've been doing other things like reading and writing.

Hope you have a great holiday and take care!

Hi Lisa, So glad to see you posted, and that you are alright. I watched the video and I thought you sounded great, except for me the video was really choppy so it came through in bits and pieces.
Happy Holidays to you.

Hi, Lisa

I've been thinking about you and wondering how you are doing. Looks like you are doing well. I also haven't been blogging much - too busy with work stuff. :-(

Have a good holiday and a happy new year.

Hi Lisa,

I've come back (at long last) to see how you are. (I've been a pretty bad blogger too) (and I understand what you're saying about Pete's blog; I haven't joined yet either). Anyway, glad to hear you say you're OK... but that was about 3 weeks ago! Hope everything's still OK.

Your video was great! Intricate bluesy piece there.

I've been playing guitar almost nonstop too (but no video). The one for tonight -- an easy one: Joy to the World (Hoyt Axton's).

Wishing you (and kitty) a peaceful Christmas season, and a blessed and better new year.

- Lucy. xo

(oops, sorry!! dropped my quarters down the wrong slot. Now they're stuck. Does your machine return money?)

P.S. I just watched your other version of Soylent Blues (the 1:13 long one on YT). Fantabulous! I love the sound -- so COOOL.

I love how you incorporate that rhythm (bass line?) into the piece even while doing the melody line. (maybe I don't know what I'm talking about LOL!) Anyway, it's totally admirable!

- Lucy (still haven't been able to retrieve my quarters)

Your fingers move like spiders, or I have certainly witnessed fewer spiders move than I have fingers. Your fingers move like fingers, but your fingers are delicate. I actually experienced a sensation in my fingertips when you were moving up (vertical) the neck and making the chords.

nice les paul.

I think it's a les paul.

If it's not a les paul, can you allow me to believe you own a les paul? please?
