Thanks @James99, hope your day is going well. I didn’t sleep last night. Still feeling awake. Anyway Im ok
I like playing guitar. But now recently I am tuned up to learning things at work which might help me improve at work and also life… so not touching any instruments. Just focusing on work work and work till I get better at it.
Can’t go that both together ?
Making music and learning at work ?
The three years of my pianoing gone together with dismantling a house, it was very relaxing to me
I’m hot now. lol
Need a piano
The moments where the left hand tapering slowly down the tempo whilst the right hand hold it, when the coupling is fully gone
Buy Jews harp, or mouth harp then you can connect to nature and not feel lonely
Yup. Guitar was my best friend for a long time. I now also play bass, cello, sax, and various drums
I find music creates isolation for me. I have my headphones on and I am so focused on the instrument that people don’t distract me. It’s great to share what you have done though.
Cooled down, loaded a virtual piano, now i’ve time; when a controller pass my way, i’ll catch it.
Plus the synth is not alone from now on in its folder
I wish I knew how to play an instrument. All I can do somewhat decently is sing. My 15 yo child is incredibly gifted musically. She taught herself how to play piano, guitar, uke, clarinet and trumpet. It’s unreal.
I did realize though that I’m pretty sure I can teach myself relative pitch which would be handy.
Fiona Apple is one of my favorite musicians and has great piano/keyboard songs. You should check her out
I’m not lonely anymore, but I used to play guitar when I was lonely back in the day. Now I play guitar and sing for family and friends…it’s different now.
Great idea @Zoe !! I applaud and encourage you. Good luck!!
That’s wonderful @Grookey ! You sound very talented. I wish there was a way I could hear you. Only half of the sound cloud screen displays on my smartphone so the audio player won’t play.
I use my keyboard as a way to deal with isolation and also as a coping skill. I also use it as a way to keep my mind sharp as I age.
I used to. My music was very much so a part of me. Now it’s just for fun!
Well @Zoe … you are right, but for me it has a different meaning;
I started in music because I wanted to have (musician) friends. Everytime I’m lonely I think about playing music, but with people.
It’s not like it cures loneliness for itself, but gives me a way to socialize.
I don’t think music is a good substitute for friends… It’s the best “making friends” activities I know. But everyone needs socialization tosome degree…
Btw how are you doing? Did you find the friend app useful?
I found no female friends on bumble it sucks!!
I’m doing okay. Still searching for a new job it ain’t easy. Really need to get back on track with new lifestyle habits. Also isn’t easy lol.
Two times I started conversation with females in bumble but they gave up on me.
For me finding female friends is difficult
How are you? And how is the health regime going
I would be lost without my guitar. It’s been the only constant in my life for more than 30 years. I’ve always had a nylon string acoustic guitar. I’ve had as many as a dozen guitars at a time but never less than one. I also play string bass, mandolin and a little synth for good measure.
Did you teach yourself to play the guitar?
