That's all

The soft shifting of the river
stars reflecting on
the glossy foliage
deep green and silent

As I looked 
into a world
bottled into pages
and fell in love with the
embers peering
back at the fire
trying to be certain
I don't know anything
just feeling
the startling jolt of creation
that's all 


Guitar Solo?

 Hello, I like to play the electric guitar but I don't like to practice a lot so it's hard to keep up the skill level. I decided to use the blog to motivate me. I'm working on a guitar solo.  I've composed the notes, but can't really play it up to speed quite yet. I don't really know how I'm going to record it, but I'll think of something. It will be a raw recording though.  I hope ptting this up here makes me practice more!  I am giving myself a month to post an audio clip and I'm not sure how much I'll be posting poetry but I might still do that too, I don't know. I  hope this gets me going. If  I never post my solo you'll know it didn't work...

Wonderful! On the guitar motivational speech.

Creativity is such a marvelous thing: You start out one way, and find yourself going onto so many side roads, able to be creative in such various directions. Creativity does, in fact, open the door to being more creative.

If you have a cellular phone, you could maybe do a voice recording on that. I find my iPhone doesn't do too bad recordings. It is in fact good enough for not being professional (Which costs a lot of money).

Good luck. Looking forward to seeing if the guitar panned out.

PS - if it doesn't work out, don't despair, chances are that then you will find another door opening again. And so on, moving along on the journey that you need to, until you get to where you were going.

hi angel, thanks, yes i will try . the problem with guitar is that if you overdue it the fingers hurt. I have also run into wrist and elbow problems in the past. It is a dangeruous intruments often referred to as an axe :)
Hi keda, thanks for the tips. I havent figured out what to do but I may buy some inexpensive program and a plug to go into the computer from the guitar directly. I will have to read up on it though. so far so good but i have to pace myself because all my fingertips hurt a little on both hands:)
