Here’s my sore fingers. After two weeks away it was a tough road back to my calluses
Tomorrow, when I pick up my guitar to practice I will feel these finger pads softening the strings as I press against them to create music.
FInally, I can make music that’s sweet to the ears and I can control the moments. holidng bacck a great chord I know is coming soon.
I am working on a piece called Impromptu. I first heard it on a CD played by classical guitarist, David Russell. I fell in love in seconds and played it over and over for an hour as I traveled to New Paltz. It didn’t sound difficult. They never sound difficult and I started talking to Jon about taking it on.
He was game. He’s almost always supportive even when he knows that it will take months for me to learn a piece I’ve fallen in love with. It’s March 14, and I am half way through it, maybe a bit more and the magic is beginning. I’m starting to hear it as I play with my own passion.
. As I type this post I can feel my calluses are back again.
