I almost quit playing this spring, you may have wondered what happened to me it’s been a while since my last post. But I’d like to thank Anne for her support and encouragement. I’d especially like to thank her for turning me on to this incredible song. I just love it, it got me playing again. I want to learn to play this really well I told my instructor a few weeks ago. She said okay… pretend you’re a violinist and play it with feeling. Easier said than done. While this is no where near the justice I plan to give to this song it is a start, a tune to mark my progress. For I’ll be practicing this one til I can play it as well as it was played as the sound track to Ken Burns’ The Civil War series on PBS. The version by Evan Stover, Jay Ungar, Matt Glaser, Molly Mason & Russ Barenberg is beautiful. My next post of this tune will be played along with the song. I plan on getting a better microphone to record the sound as I play along with it. I tried it for this post but the feedback was so bad I decided to stay with Photo Booth. So, for all us adult beginners out there when you think you’ve taken the learning curve as far as you can or you get discouraged and want to quit get a great song that stirs you passion to stick with it.
