Guitar Player Chording D

Just when you think you have a hit! My wife thinks my new song "Stay With You" sounds better without the raunchy lead playing. Well I think highly of her opinion and I will add two versions to "The Roof" CD, then others can make a choice, too.

This image is a little old, I've had it for some time. It is from a photograph taken years ago. I used Painter 8 and made it a sketch first. Then I used the watercolor brushes to paint in the light coloring. This brings the guitar player into focus as the subject. He was playing my Crestwood 12-string chording a D chord. I snapped the photograph with my old Pentax K1000 35mm film camera.

I got my DVD, Book and CD on playing scales in the mail today. I have yet to view it though. The book seems complicated to my sensitivities (read lack of knowledge) that is why I bought the thing in the first place. I learn from seeing and listening and doing more than reading. But this will be a good challenge for me. I need to stretch my music capabilities further if I expect to continue to grow in this way. So I am excited about my purchase.

Now playing on Windows Media Player: Kirk Mathew Gatzka - Stay With You II
