just another manic monday

sweet sounds

Doesn't this look like it would belong to the guitarist of an '80s girl group?



I think we're being invaded. In the finest spirit of "if you can't beat 'em..." my lessons start a week from tonight.

You go girl! Oy, the Bangles - you're bringing back embarrassing memories of permed mullets. Those lessons should be great fun.

Good for you! Are you getting yourself a hot pink guitar like that one? :-)

So cool! You'll have to let me know when your band tours the States! :)

Seriously, good for you for starting lessons. It will probably help stretch your other creative muscles as well.

Caroline: Yes -- the fool. (Was that predictable or wot?)

GWS: I had the perms, and the resulting burned out hair, but left the mullets for the lads.

Heather: Sure! You buying? :)

Angela: Ooo -- a band. How to make me feel REALLY old. :)

Hot damn! No room for a grand in either the house or the kitty, but I think I could manage a small electric number...

I used to play guitar when i was a teenager. I could kick myself now for not keeping up with it. Such a beautiful instrument to listen to. Keep us updated on your progress.
Sounds like a lot of fun.

He picks at his guitar all day long now that he is home.

Dinah: I hope you're talking keyboards/pianos now! Our piano is small -- 3 keys short actually and made in the 1880s.

Melody: Thanks -- and do you still have your guitar?

Toni: Only if he's a good teacher. :)

Andrea: Thanks and I'm on the next plane to Paris...

It's totally a Suzi Quatro guitar without a doubt.

Listen to all that reminiscing! So fun.
I think it's a great idea, Andrea, the lessons. A fun diversion, a new challenge, new connections in the brain. Sounds of music through the house, lovely. In your case, more sounds of music! I know I love it too.
