More learning and opening the mind

CORI LYSSY AND I are playing again Friday night at State Street Bar from 9 p.m. to midnight. We are working up a bunch of songs to debut. Never in a million years did I ever think I'd be doing
Kacey Musgraves, Fleetwood Mac and Janis Joplin tunes with a fabulous girl singer. Never.

It just shows you the older you get, the more you begin to appreciate different styles and genres. I had a young man at a guitar lesson last night say he wanted to learn a country song, and when I told him it would be no problem, he couldn't believe it.
Kinda looks like Cori, huh Kacey?

"Well, I know you don't like country," he said.

Not sure where that came from. Country music is fine, even if a lot of it today is devoid of soul and has all the creativity of baby formula. You learn the strum pattern and chord changes, and I need to try not to judge.

Except maybe for rap. And death metal. And this.  Click at your own risk. GUH.

You get my drift. Rock on, whatever floats your boat!
