There are two things that I would love to try and see if I had any talent for. I love music. I love singing, and God in His grace gave me a decent ear, a decent voice and a workable sense of rhythm. I don't play any instruments though. I would love to be able to play the acoustic or electric guitar, but given the lack of coordination I exhibit on the typing keyboard, and the fact I struggled with it as a grade schooler tells me guitar might be out of reach. However, I am athletically coordinated, and maybe that might make me suitable for the drums. I would LOVE to learn to play the drums!!!
Doesn't that just look like so MUCH FUN!!
Now, I'm an alto in my singing voice, occasionally I get to sing melody with lower soprano parts but generally I'm singing harmony. Harmony is that thing that no one thinks about but adds so much to a musical number, no matter what the genre or type of music. Bass guitar is a harmony piece in most tunes, (although Paul Simon's "You Can Call Me Al" has a bass part to die for!). Bass guitar is not as complex as rhythm or lead guitar and I might be able to master it. I would LOVE to try!
So that is my musical "bucket list". I don't know if it will even happen, but if you're in the Kansas City area and you see someone in a PT Cruiser playing air drums or the air bass guitar, it might just be me.
The photos are actually "snips" from this Jared Anderson video of his song "Inside"
Don't remember the Paul Simon tune? Here's a link to the live version. The studio version is pretty awesome too, featuring Chevy Chase.
