Advice needed

I thought, my inflexible finger of my left hand would bring my guitar playing to a final end. But now a doctor helped me and so I can play again – I’m so happy!

above: featuring a true lover of music: the cat Zaya, photo by Catou, Brussels. Though I like to make photos (one finger only!) or give feedbacks with my two finger type system – the inner child deep in my heart longs to express via guitar arrangements (ten fingers needed). So I’m very glad, that I can continue to upload to the “soundcloud”! P.S.: And next week I can play in my favorite Folk club in Brussels again! It’s an “open mike” session, and every musician is allowed only to play 3 pieces. Which of the following nine below would you choose – time for some advice?

your votes (till now):


13 – for 1. Aranjuez (Rodrigo) Swing

6 – for 2. Black-orpheus
9 – for 3. Georgia-on-my

5 – for 4. And-I-love-her
5 – for 5. Blues-in-E
7 – for 6. Frizz-Rag

6 – for 7. KC-moans
9 – for 8. Blackbird-in-G
6 – for 9. Scarborough-fair

  2. How great that you’ll be on open mike! The playlist is on #2 now, and I’ll be back soon with my top three!
    I’m so glad you’re strumming again!

    • hi Lisa / Zeebra,
      congrats to your new loudspeakers (though cheap earphones would be my choice) – and your new PC is working fast indeed – imagine, what a distance between Ecuador and Germany!

    • The sound is amazing! Yes, today’s technology is equally amazing! I like the KC moans, reminds me of riding a tired horse home through the fields at the end of a hot dusty summer day. Everyone would recognize and therefore embrace, “and i love her.” The first, Rodrigo Swing is refreshing as well.. Hard choices, though your fans will love anything you give them! Z

    2 songs that you should include from that list are George on My Mind and Scarborough Fair. Awesome choices for open mic! I hope you can somehow get at least one (or all) videotaped and share with us all. Would love to see (or at least hear) you play!

      This is embarassing but I didn’t realize till after reading and listening to your music on your “solitary photo challenge post” that I could in fact hear you play by clicking on the tunes! haha! Beautiful!

      • hi Andy D Brown, because you asked for videotaped tracks: below a link to my youtube channel, featuring me and the blind clarinetist Rob and my friend Catou on Bazouka during last year’s session, same place as this year: Saint Andrew’s Church Folk Night, Chaussée de Vleurgat, Brussels – it’s not a glamour event – but that’s the reason because I like it so much: and the audience there has a quite familiar behaviour …

    Blues-in-E klingt großartig! Ich bin in großer Fan von Black Bird und das solltest du unbedingt spielen. Als drittes Lied Blues-in-E
    oder Frizz-Rag, beide sind toll.

      • hallo Aljaja,
        auf einem Berliner Kinderspielplatz hab’ ich auch schon ein paar mal Gitarre gespielt – und ein sehr freundliches und dankbares Publikum gehabt (Friedrichshain; angenehmer als in meiner Heimatstadt Wuppertal);
        P.S.:
        vielen Dank für’s Anhören meiner 9 Gitarren-Stückchen:

          Das kann ich absolut nachvollziehn. Ich kann zwar nicht behaupten, dass ich beide Städte gut kenne. Aber Berlin und Umgebung empfinde ich auch immer angenehmer als Wuppertal. Offener … irgendwie.

          • Cairo und Alexandria kenne ich nur durchs Internet – allerdings, nein, wir kannten mal eine Nachtclub-Tänzerin, Aisha, aus Alexandria, die war mit ihren 5 Schwestern weit weg von ihrem Vater geflohen in alle möglichen Länder: Frankreich, Canada, Australien, Irland. Ach, und einmal ist ein blinder Gelehrter von der Universität Alexandria mit dem Krückstock auf mich losgegangen, weil ich einen Vortrag darüber hielt, dass in der Türkei nicht immer alle Menschenrechte eingehalten werden. Freundlicherweise haben seine eigenen Body-Guards den alten Herrn festgehalten und gezähmt. Schöner ist es allerdings, wenn man über die Musik und den Tanz gegenseitiges menschliches Verständnis aufbaut – und den politischen Streit zur Ruhe legt …
            – danke aljaja (übersetzt: “Der Gott?) für die Kommentare!

              Oh Nein: “aljaja” bedeutet nicht “Gott”. Das würde mir zumindest in Ägypten Ärger einbringen. Das Pseudonym ist eher eine Remineszenz daran, was mit einem etwas längeren Vornamen passiert, wenn man durch die Welt reist. Ich hab aber eine Ahnung, woran du gedacht hast. Ich werde das auf meiner Seite demnächst genauer erklären. LG

                  nein, der Artikel ‘al’ wird in diesen Sprachen nicht verwendet, zumindest nicht vor Namen. Jahja bzw. Yahya ist übrigens die türkische Version von Johannes.
                  Alja, alya im Türkischen = Berg oder Boden, aleyana = türkische Version von Helena.
                  Aliha, aliyah, alijah, alijha, aliyaha im semitischen Sprachraum (hebräisch, arabisch, aramäisch, Maltesisch, Amharisch …) = hoch, erhöht, erhaben, Aufstieg, Pilgerschaft, gepilgert, gesegnet.
                  Alja im slawischen Sprachrraum = Kurzform bzw. Umbenennung für Alice, Alissa, Alexandra, Alexander, Aljoscha, Aljonna, … Die Endung “-ja” = Verkleinerung (ähnlich wie -lein oder -chen im Deutschen).
                  Im Griechischen und in manchen romanischen Sprachen verwendet man auch alea, aleja.
                  Im Ungarischen bedeutet alja = ‘der Rest, was übrig bleibt, die Neige’ und aljaja =’das Untere’, ‘der Boden’.
                  … das ließe sich noch ein paar Zeilen fortführen … ;) Viele Grüße

  22. YAY …. God does work in mysterious ways. He has bestowed upon you a new gift. It was your desire to play again that He heard and brought you healing.
    I think it is wonderful that you will be able to play at an open mike. You should be heard by people. You have a true love for it when you are doing it. Good Luck ….!!!!

    My choices are:

    Aranjuez (Rodrigo) Swing
    Black-orpheus
    Georgia-on-my

    They are perfect.
