So this happened last night. Henry flew 24 hours from Bahrain to his new posting stateside, and drove straight here to arrive just in time for Corradina's 21'st Birthday party.

She really did! She's made friends with a local soul singer named Mr. B., who surprised her at the party and sang a song to her.

So after about 42 months since I played guitar before the move, things in the new house are finally far enough along for me to start playing guitar again. I've said THAT before! In any event, to commemorate my return to playing, I took out the first guitar I ever owned, the 1963 Harmony 1215 Archtone Dad bought me new. It's still playable, and still hard to play with un-calloused fingertips. Brought back a lot of memories.

The song I started with? The rhythm part to Walk, Don't Run '64, barre chords and all. I'm REALLY out of practice! After two days I decided to use an easier to play guitar. Laughing

Wow! This is the first time I've seen this thread. I've just been reading through the whole backstory of you adopting the kids from Russia and everything. You and your wife should be really proud of what you've achieved there.

Good luck with getting back into playing the guitar. 42 months is a long time - I don't blame you for switching to an easier to play guitar!

Back in business! With my computer failing I had to put an old Android tablet into service to practice music. I found a really simple app named Music Speed Changer. All it does is play music loaded onto a device in pitch at whatever speed I need. So I've loaded up twenty of the songs I used to play. With my tablet connected to a dbx go-Rack, and that connected to my powered PA speakers, plugging my guitar into a big Fender is almost like playing with the band. Surf's up!

Progress is always good. At our age, we may have changed the definition of progress. Smile

Screen shot of Music Speed Changer. It's easily the simplest to use software for learning songs and practice I've used. The ubiquitous ads are as unobtrusive as possible, and no popups either. I played the bass part on this. Can't wait until I can again. Fun stuff!
