I Am Going To Do It!











See this baby, Epiphone PR-200...

Well its mine today, I pick it up down in south Jersey. My good friend Vito found it in mint condition at a flea market. I owned a small junior 'Holland' made guitar, a bass and amp years ago, but my nephew pawned them. Great relatives right! Well all forgiven, and I was not practicing as I should have been. Now that I am surrounded by musicians and artists I have no excuse but to put my writing, and music skills to work!

I have written several songs as of late, and want to work on my voice again. My music teacher told me years ago what a beautiful voice I have, and many of my artist friends say they lack talent for writing, and that I should pursue my dreams... I am no Lucinda Williams, but we all are shining stars in our own way right!

Very cool! I can't play guitar to save my life. I've always been a brass instrument player. Strings are too complicated.

That's a be-yoot you've got there Elizabeth. I just know that you have a beautiful songbird-like voice that is as lovely as you are :)
Have a beautiful day and........

I used to have an Epiphone guitar, and with it I was able to confirm that, yes, I have zero musical ability.

What did you do to your foot? I went back and read the last week's posts, but I still couldn't tell exactly what happened.
