I play mostly on the back porch of my house. My neighbors can hear me, but at least I'm spared the sight of their laughter as I teach myself to play. For the record, the birds don't seem to mind.
Recently, I started playing out in front of friendly audiences. I took my CBG to the lake cottage this last weekend and played sitting out on the dock at sunset. The audience is family and close friends, so they sort of have to be nice, and they were.
This post serves as some self-induced peer pressure to ensure I don't back out on a committment. I've decided to take my guitar to the streets tonight for the first time. I want to buy a couple packs of strings from the Guitar Shop in town and since the track is open in Saratoga Springs, the streets are full of tourists. Why not give it a go? I just wish I had an extra guitar to sell while I'm playing.
I decided to write some lyrics and I hope they don't foreshadow an actual event, but here goes. . .
BTW, no offense intended to any non-tourist types or otherwise decent people from that state just south of NY. . .
