New Face, New Name, But the music is still ..
All my life music has been a part of me. Most of the time I took it for granted, and accepted and enjoyed it for what it was. All styles are to my liking I am a person with an open mind. If my ears like what I hear, and my mind absorbs the sounds then I become part of the sounds. It matters not what the genre, whether it jazz, blues, musicals, pop I was happy within myself. As I developed I did start to have preferences, but this did not affect my music limitations.
Just before my sixteenth birthday I took up the guitar, and it engulfed me. I had a fabulous time playing, learning and discovering a whole new world. As I progressed and my ability and understanding became very proficient, I wanted more, strumming and picking in my bedroom was not enough. I decided to venture out and try to meet new people, and to play in public. Instead of learning how to play everyone else’s music, although I learnt some, I preferred to write my own. I was already writing poetry and lyrics, so I thought I was on a head start.
This blog has been ignored by me for far too long, I think it has a lot to offer, a variety light-hearted and loving music. In fact any style one wishes to hear or request. I was not sure as to what to do with it, and this is why I have left it dormant trying to think of a new life or new line for it. But really, after great deal of thought I realised there is no real way of doing this, because music is the foundation of this site, and of course people lives, and since its birth I have noticed others popping up, doing similar. So maybe a trend it has started with this initial fabulous idea.
So today it is just like a new beginning.
Do you ever listen to the radio or a disco or go to gig and here songs that originally meant nothing, but as the years passed and you hear it again, it suddenly tugs those memory strings. Like me for example, a few years ago I saw Hermans Hermits, they meant nothing to me in their hey day, poppy commercial chart rubbish, we all use to say, but seeing and hearing them they suddenly ignited nice and beautiful memories from the day. I also even said they were very good.
