GUEST,murray@mpce.mq.edu.au What are you working on right now? (81* d) RE: What are you working on right now? 04 Oct 00


I am learning to play (on guitar) and sing the Carter Family's "Jimmy Brown the Newsboy" and sort-of poking away at "Wabash Cannonball".

Art, in his CD "The Older I Get the Better I was", has a Uncle Dave Macon song about Nashville. He plays it on the banjo and I am trying to make a guitar arrangement that "goes"--so far no luck.

I am trying to learn a few of Leo Brouwer "simple" exercises on the classical guitar.

I had plans to learn to bend notes and play blues harp. I am not really putting a lot of time on it.

richlmo: Does your son get to sing "Tiptoe Through the Tulips"? ;^}

Bill D: I wish you lived in Sydney. Those Carter Family songs on solo guitar sound a bit thin.

Now that I have said all that, what I am trying to do at this very moment is get my callouses back. I spent last month in and out of hospitals and didn't get to play the guitar very much.
