that does not look like a conversation piece. Plus, music is what you do. I pick up my guitar for at least half an hour a day and often lots more. With something like that one has to play it at least the same amount of time with an audience or not. Music is just what is inside you coming through the instrument for no reason except the ear want to loop it back to the brain as a pleasurable experience. It is why we live.
Thanks for the advice. I used to play the guitar a lot but haven't picked up one in 2 years. I have lost a lot of speed and dexterity. I now find the keyboard easier as I can play straight off the music sheet without much practice or memorization. The Tyros is surplus to my requirements but I have some buddies who are pros so it is mostly for them when they come over.
Don't know if you remember Eddie Hinds from Guyana. He was quite a good saxophonist and my music teacher for 4 years at QC. I credit him for getting me interested in music and learning play the guitar and keyboard. Wonder if anyone knows if he is still around.
I did not formally take music classes until about 10 years ago. I never learnt scales etc. I just played as I felt the music. While it made me a good player it took learning music and understanding where and how things fit together that made me a good musician. I wish I had started earlier but I do not think I will ever stop formally taking classes or learning from friends. One can never stop learning news ways of seeing sounds. I am a sound-color synesthesiac so it is a natural addiction.
