Music

I know I've said this before. But piano is my new addiction. I don't know what it is but I'm turning myself into a musician. Jared just gave me the sheet music for Come and Listen by David Crowder and in the last two days I've been learning it. Such a beautiful song. The only thing is its a lot of sections that are pretty different. So I can play all the parts now, but its hard putting them all smoothly in a row to sound like a whole song. But its still very very fun. I've definitely caught the bug. I decided recently to learn guitar also. So I've been keeping my dad's electro-acoustic Gibson guitar in my room. I can play How great is our God on it. But thats all so far. =/ It is a very hard instrument to just jump into. It takes a whole lot of getting used to at least. And coordination. I just need to keep at it thats all. I don't know what to learn next though. I always need something to learn, it keeps me going. Any suggestions would be welcome. I was thinking of Landslide by Fleetwood mac because I like that song... but it has a lot of finger picking and I just want chords. Thats all I can do right now.

Jared has a microphone that he uses for recording. We tried it on the piano and it sounds reallllly good, so we want to take a day sometime to record my song. And others of course. We want to learn a song by Sherwood called What Lucy found There. I think its Narnia inspired =) We would record that to if we learn. (Joshua just now informed me that "What Lucy found there" is a chapter name from The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe). Also a couple days ago we were jamming in our living room(we brought the drums inside for a little while). We played Love Song by Sarah Bariellis (I don't know how to spell that =P). I was on the Piano, Nathan was on the Drums, and Jared was on the guitar. It was very fun and sounded pretty good.

So that was a very long post... about not very much stuff... but thats ok right?

Very cool...the bug had to hit you eventually with all those musicians in the house.

Wow you are luck to be able to pick it up so easily! That is really neat. Stephies right you would have picked it up sometime due to all the instruments in your house. Play New Soul. That would be good on the piano.
