Always after breakfast I like to sit on the bench in our kitchen to play one little fingerstyle arrangement on my e-guitar. Please support my perseverance making some comments – so I maybe have the courage to continue daily …

comments by wordpress blogger, book author and musician Bumba / Stephen Baum, I’m just reading his book UP IN THE BRONX (a book with a blues CD):
1 – Freight Train: Very good. You did a beautiful job with this one. I always loved this tune, the way it goes from the C to the E.
2 – Ain’t She Sweet: I always liked that song. That ragtime stuff (if I’m using the right terminology) is so wonderful.
3 – E-major-blues: A moving rendition – except for your cat, whom I suspect is a poster. I watched carefully. Not one whisker moved.
my reply to Bumba / Stephen Baum: Maria, Madelaine, the weather descriptions, the Jewish language – I’m now behind chapter XXX – and I like your book very much, Steve. Because we had Jewish friends in Queens and they introduced us the whole Big Apple. Your book makes this month alive again, the most interesting month of our whole life!
P.S.: thank you for your comments to three of my guitar short videos – will upload now every Sunday morning a review like this (my goal, don’t know, if my motivation will overcome)
ranking of my flickr videos, tagged “good-morning”, organized daily by dopiaza
my plan: every Sunday I’ll introduce some of the songs I played the week before – I hope that will not be boring …
