Music

My parents bought us a Casio keyboard for Christmas, nothing extra-special fancy, but still an okay starter keyboard. I've been wanting a keyboard for a while so that I could get back into playing piano, which I haven't done since I was a pre-teen. So today we stopped in the local music store and picked up some very basic adult piano lesson books. I have trouble committing time to a project unless I have committed money to it as well, and so I think buying these books will be the impetus I need to actually practice. (We're still in the financial state where $30 worth of books is an investment.)

I'm also looking into replacing the guitar that duchez sent me a few years back. While it's an okay guitar, it's a wide-body and I find it rather difficult to play (which is the reason she gave it to me in the first place). I feel that getting a newer, smaller guitar would also convince me that it's worth my while learning to play better. I'd also like to get rid of my broken electric bass and pick up an acoustic at some point.

I'm really hoping that this year will turn out to be more musical than recent years. I used to be quite fond of making music in one way or another, and I did it on a regular basis. Lately, though, it's fallen by the wayside as I pursue other things. I'm determined to change that, though.

Let's tie Ryan up and force him into taking a picture of JUST his boobies. Then we'll draw a smiley face and make him a NICE icon for once!

^ will so take your busted bass. I'm like a homeless shelter for used, crappy pieces of bass. :)

I may actually try and sell it. If I can get a few bucks for it, that'll make buying a new one that much easier.

There's a hot acoustic for $335 at the local music store. We stopped there the other day to get some piano books, and I drooled over the guitars and basses. Sigh.

My siblings and I had a dinky annoying keyboard when we were young. It had the fantastic function of being able to record 1 second of sound and then play that sound at the pitch of any key on the keyboard, so we could record ourselves, say, belching, and then play the demo song in belches!

My parents absolutely adored it.

I love you, mkb. Will you marry me? Sarah doesn't mind.

How about we compromise and schedule a weekend of passionate lovin' every now and then? A few hours just ain't enough.

if your serious about selling the guitar, let me know...I know someone who desperately wants a guitar. :)

ah the guitar
I was wondering about it recently...it's a nice enough guitar, but being small, i had the hardest time wrapping my arms around the body...and steel strings killed my tender fingers...I am surprised - and happy - that it's still kicking around. Make sure it finds a nice home!
