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?
