A music meme and other musical things

This week's Delightful Deviant is  iNeedChemicalX because her photography is sweet, soft, and nostalgic. It's like seeing someone's memories in a frame.

I think it's been established that this blog is on shuffle, or rather, the blogger is on shuffle. Speaking of shuffle, I've never gotten around to this meme, but it's one I feel like doing at the moment. I had a similar one in my e-mail, but it went poof the moment I felt like doing it. I just found this one on a Google search. The really interesting stuff will follow. I'm just doing it for fun (which is why foreign titles and embarrassing songs will be included).

Well, that was fun for me. I did not rig that first one, by the way. That's a song from James and the Giant Peach, a movie I happen to love and own a couple songs from. Moving on, I'm learning how to play the guitar and I'm hoping to get a viola in a few months, but I have one tiny problem: I don't listen to much guitar music. I like the piano and cello the best followed by the viola, violin, and hang drum. I hate the quartz singing crystal bowl. I'm getting a headache just thinking about that instrument. As far as the guitar goes, I'm indifferent. I'm only learning it to prepare my fingers for playing the viola (callouses) and because Andrea has a guitar that she's not using. I've learned the E major, A major, B7, and D major chords, I think. I'm not 100% sure of the "major" part, but I'm just trying to figure out how to enjoy this instrument at the moment. I'll work on getting the chord names down later.

 Well, I think this song is going to be my goal. It'll take a while to get there, but I think I'd like to play it. I prefer it on the piano, but there's no harm in trying to play it on the guitar.

This one is nice, too.

I think learning this one in the future is a requirement.
I only like this song because of the movie Whisper to the Heart.

That's all I can come up with at the moment. I need to explore my collection to see what I can start with and work up to. It'd be sad to learn an instrument that I don't enjoy.

Until the next post, and as always, take care. 8)
