I've been working on a number of different things lately but today I figured out High & Dry by Radiohead. Pretty easy song (3 chord wonder) but I'm going to kind of mix it up and do it in my own style vocally.
What about you guys? What did you just nail down? What's on the agenda?
Eyes of the World by the good ol' Grateful Dead. No idea what's next. Probably whatever catches my fancy as I'm listening to music later this evening. Which will probably make it either a Black Crowes or Grateful Dead tune. Maybe I'll teach myself the chords to Evergreen finally
Most recent thing I learned is the piano part of the first and second movement of Mendelssohn's Violin Sonata in F minor.
I wish I knew a violinist to play it with.
As for what's on the agenda, I think I'll quit piano and return to guitar.
There's something about the piano that's just not suited to my personality. It's a very beautiful instrument but I can really only play in public on campus since I don't own one at home, and it's very difficult for me to do in that setting. There's something embarrassing to me about being expressive in public, and piano is really a showman's instrument. The very size of the piano is a testament to that. To truly command it requires a personality more outward than my own.
To me guitar is much more intimate and is more in tune with the natural state of my soul. I'd like to just sit on the couch and plink away for a few hours. I used to play steel-string guitar and got bored with it, but now I'm developing an interest in flamenco style guitar playing, specifically dances.
