Don't worry,..I'm keeping my day job.


I recieved my very first guitar on my 8th birthday.
It was an Harmony,F-hole,accoustic,(The very same style guitar John Denver started with,as a matter of useless trivia),and probably at least two-thirds as big as I was.
Along with the gift,came 10 free lessons!..
I learned to tune the beast,properly fret the strings,and even play,in single notes,my very first tune.
After that,it was every man for himself.
Here's that music,vastly changed over the years,and with all my mistakes preserved in one take!

Amateur - someone who does something for the "love of it" and the pleasure it gives others. And you sir, qualify under that definition.

Thanks.

danny- Thanks bud..Do you play guitar?

doralong- I showed my mug just for you kid!

danielle- My mustache has always wanted it's own show!..I'm havin' a terrific weekend sweets. ;)

sage- I get the sense that you and danny both play as well,and would love to hear some of your stuff if that's the case.Thanks for your sweet comment,but I'm thinkin' Andres Segovia is wincing in his grave. ;)

mom- You can always count on mom for enthusiastic support!..Thanks dear.

willym- You have nailed it precisely my friend!..It's always been an enjoyable hobby,and I've made some genuine friends over impromptu pickin' sessions. :)

tater- Well it's always nice to be seen!Thanks buddy.

billy P.- I haven't seen that movie,but now I'll keep an eye out for it.

Thank you dear, I appreciate that ever so much! It made me happy- really.

I enjoyed that, Sling. I once tried to learn the guitar - I learned the chords - but alas, I am tone deaf and couldn't put those chords together. I learned a few riffs but that was it. It was a very short musical career.

 
At 4:15 PM , Blogger hello, my name is danny. said...

sadly, i don't, sling. what's worse is that my grandfather used to make guitars and mandolins back in the day so they were always available. my younger brother picked it up though while i found the act of making them more interesting.

Wow, very nice! My younger son walked through the room and said, We're palying that in band - it's called Malaguena. (He got his guitar and lessons at starting whn he was 8. too, and still plays. But it's the older one, who started at 12, who just plays guitar ALL THE TIME now.)

So nice to see you doing something you love.

 
At 10:33 AM , Blogger booda baby said...

FUnfunfunfunfunfunfunfunfun!! Come over now and we'll get all the instruments and thingies going and play MUSIC and have a band for a day.

That made me so happy. Thanks!!

At 5:25 PM , Blogger Sling said...

doralong- My pleasure doll.

Hale Mckay- I can't read music,and don't know the names of most of the chords I play,but it's fun!

danny- Dude!..Back in the day,I mean WAY back,my family were notable harpsichord makers..for real.

Citizen- ..surprised he recognized my version..;)
My son plays as well,and has written some fun tunes.
I'll have to round up a recording of our duet.

kimberly ann- These days,I only ever do the things I love. :)

booda babe- Hell yes!..I can play some harmonica too.
We can get hammered and raise a rauckus and be famous!..For a day.

Everyone stand back!..Hat has passed out!..We'll need to loosen that collar a tad,and perform some emergency CPR! :P

 
At 6:58 PM , Blogger rosemary said...

Damn, Sling...I could play Malaguena on the accordion when I was 16....I told you a long time ago we shoudda started a band. You are AWESOME!

 
At 7:45 PM , Blogger Sling said...

Rosie- Well let's hear it on the sqeezebox darlin'!..There's enough variations on this tune to go for days! :)

 
At 9:40 PM , Blogger Speck said...

1) - Ditto on the nice to see your smiling face finally.

2) - Nice hair.

3) - I thought you were about to launch into Roundabout by Yes.

4) - I am mightily impressed. BRAVO! BRAVO! (clap, clap, clap)

5) - Slap that cameraman upside the head. Tell him we need to see all ten of your fingers whilst you're a-pickin'

 
At 10:00 PM , Blogger Sling said...

speck-
1) The smiling face can be found in post offices everywhere.
2)Thanks,A head chock full runs in the family.
3)We have a winner!..I stole that little bit from Yes,and used it for the intro..I'm not above a little musical plagiarism. ;)
4) I'm pleased you took some pleasure from it.
5) SEE!..This is what I'm sayin'!..If I had my druthers,I'd druther the camera was focused on the Guitar...Next time. :)

At 6:22 PM , Blogger Citymouse said...

you are wonderful.. and you can play guitar!!!

 
At 7:16 PM , Blogger more cowbell said...

DAMN - that was beautiful. You know it's good when you're popping goosebumps and saying Mmm! to yourself, listening to a computer video. I loved that, Sling. Also, your stache should have it's own show, and that should not involve CPR on the Hat.

thanks for posting that.

 
At 10:16 PM , Blogger Monica said...

shit... who is it that you look like?!?!?! one day it's gonna hit me. it's like kurt vonnegut meets...um... and that's where i get stuck.

If my Internet connection didn't bottom out several times in the middle, this would have been a very lovely piece of music. What I did hear was great, thanks for sharing!

 
At 6:41 PM , Blogger yellowdog granny said...

sigh.*...can I have your autograph?

 
At 5:26 PM , Blogger Middle Child said...

Thank you for this...and we get to see you beyond your arms... not bad for 54 (its a good year - I know) I just enjoyed listening so much... I started the piano once but ran away from boarding school and lost the lessons...life sort of got a hold of me then and didn't go back to it...but I admire those who had the love of music and the backbone to work at it...101 out of 100 okat Sling.

and like Yellowdog granny - autogtaph please Sling

What is that thing? It looks a lot like a guitar , except without an amplifier and two stacks of electronic FX processors. It sounds good, whatever it is.
*applauds*
