This Old House – about getting older

  1. Great fingers, Frizz!
    Grown old? No! Getting wiser: yes!


  2. That house is a perfect house, indeed. πŸ™‚


  3. Loved listening to your guitar playing just now with my coffee, here in a little country town about 60 miles east of San Francisco, so here you are too. Perfect way to start the day. I really like the thoughts you and Marina posted; so true that the soul travels and that brings happiness.


  4. Your fingers sound pretty young to me. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the nice music this morning!
    And now you can say your music has been heard in Washington, State too. Lisa


  5. first time I heard the song – love it


  6. I love this song Frizz! For the first time I had problems listening to your sound cloud and had to download it instead of just clicking!

    That photo of the old house is INCREDIBLE!! It’s a work of art in its old age.


  8. I remember that song. I loved how easy the words were to remember. I sang along many times – very popular. Geat post … super fingerstyle playing and photos.


  9. great sound wonderful pictures
    you are as old as you feel my young friend…


  10. Always enjoy hearing you play, Dietmar.


  11. Thoroughly enjoyed this post.
    And you are good on the guitar. Bravo!


  12. Wise fingers, knowing and experienced fingers with accents and nuances new fingers can’t express… yet.


  13. You play the guitar well and I enjoyed it. Too bad the first house was neglected. It was definitely a beautiful house once.


  14. I am listening to you dear Frizz, I loved this post. And your playing fingers πŸ™‚ Thanks and Love, nia


  15. Fantastic post … enjoyed everything about it.


  16. Enjoyed both you and George playing and singing a song I’ve always loved! That poor old house posted by Pastor Rick is amazing — hard to figure how it stood long enough for the pictures, lol! What neat photos!


  17. Oh my, that twisted old house is beyond repair!
    But your fingerplaying on the guitar grows stronger!
