I’ve never had an electric guitar.
Too bulky and noisy with amp. Too quiet without. A bit heavy, though very nice to minimize callouses and get cool sound effects.
Somewhat recent changes in technology and recent affordability in that technology will allow me to get Bluetooth capability with an electric guitar, for noise cancelling headphones and/or Bluetooth wireless mini-speaker with some decent volume.
As a result, I’ve resolved to go electric this year with my guitar playing, mostly for songwriting and playing music. I’m very far from a true guitarist!
Back in 2009, I wrote a half a dozen Christmas parody carols. With limited tools at the time, I could only leave the lyrics and let the viewers do their best to try them. With an iPhone now that allows me to record digitally easily, I figured I’d give one a go.
My other Christmas carol parody lyrics are here:
Maybe in the coming days I’ll record some more for the heck of it. :)
Let’s see how many subscribers I’ll lose over these, lol
Every once in a while, I try something new on the Internet and it sticks with me to become a part of my life. The most recent one is Spotify online music streaming and I just wanted to share my set of playlists with anyone who might care for it, or check out Spotify for themselves. Wi-fi, especially free wi-fi, is widely available in a lot of places these days, so it’s like being able to take some music libraries with you anywhere you go. That could be the entire Spotify catalogue you’d have access to, or just your own playlists (or others’ playlists you can follow as part of your library.
Recently, I was in Da Lat, Viet Nam, where my Paternal relatives wanted to take me to see some embroidery place, as they casually put it. They knew I liked sewing and fashion so they probably thought I could appreciate the embroidery work done by these people.
Well, what I saw completely blew my mind. Even if you don’t like embroidery, this was spectacular work! It was all hand embroidery, with some having millions of stitches!
