I enjoy listening to...ME!

 

Before you call the authorities, let me explain.

 

I’ve played at guitar since the age of 15. I say “played at” because I never took lessons, learned to read music, or did much in the way of practicing. To make matters worse, I was never around anyone with more talent from whom I could learn. That’s not a recipe for improvement, but it is conducive to boredom. Eventually, guitar wasn’t part of my life anymore. I’d just keep a cheap one around, and I’d pick it up on very rare occasions and play the same old stuff.

Having had experience producing commercials in radio, I found it easy to teach myself digital recording and editing. But it wasn't until I was about to turn 80 in 2021 that I thought of combining that skill with my limited musical abilities. Buying a decent instrument was very much out of character for this penny-pincher, but I did it. I'd never even had a hobby as an adult.

Now, some 60 recordings later, I'm still amazed by what I've been able to put together. I was never a “lead” player, so taking that role is entirely new to me. I still have a hard time considering myself a musician, but I do get a lot of satisfaction from finally bringing to the surface a latent talent I wasn't aware of and knowing that others enjoy the results.

I'm delighted that I actually have fans, although the music is online under an assumed name. My web site's had nearly 700 unique visitors.

I guess it's an ego trip in a way, but my reaction when I listen is still, “I did that?!”

      Now for some calming music....Phil |Keaggy's first band out of Cleveland...

      Hey @Heather Shay the Ramones provide a neat segue to L7, an all-girl grunge-era punk band I've been listening to a lot lately. Their big hit was "Pretend We're Dead", but I've only just discovered the earlier album, Smell the Magic, produced by Jack Endino of early-Nirvana, Green River and Screaming Trees fame. L7 rock!

      Many people I know in the UK have gone down the private medicine route to transition and that's fine if they can afford it. But many others simply cannot. A few have basically put themselves in a position where they will be working until they drop to pay for GRS.  I started work at 15. The first job I had that paid a decent wage, I only got when I was in my mid 40s, then due to health issues I had to quit that which is how I got into making a living in music but that's been pretty much hand to mouth.  So my only route would have been via the NHS and that's usually a long wait.

      Destinations not guaranteed.  Enjoy the journey.

      There are definitely pros and cons, but my particular conformity is neither a blessing or curse, it's just me. Not my fault people in society have low tolerance for my existence. I feel I'm cursed with allergies, and a fate to be stuck on a planet full of overly big headed animals that are destructive, complain a lot, and are fickle.
    • Marcie Jensen
      I think it's a bit of both, actually. The blessing part comes from being one's self, being given greater insight into how different people think and see themselves as well as having a greater understanding of who we are as individuals. The curse part, well, it comes from being marginalized and the frustrations associated with a general lack of acceptance by society at large.   It's funny @Heather Shay. This thread brought an old Kris Kristofferson song to mind. It's called "The Pilgrim: CHapter 33." There's a line in it that says: "...Never knowing if believing is a blessing or a curse, or if the goin' up is worth the coming down."  For some reason, not sure why, this seems apt with regard to your question. Mostly, I believe the going up (transition) is more than worth the coming down (prejudice, fear, hate, etc) that we all experience.

      Do you think being different from society's norms in regard to gender or sexual orientation is a blessing or a curse?

      I have been in Colorado several times and one of the beautiful sights is the Rocky Mountains which have rocks.Sadly, they have an elected rep who has the same intelligence as the rocks, but is nowhere near as nice to be around.  Good for AOC.
    • Carolyn Marie
      Thanks, @Jamey.    Yes, AOC doesn't put up with any b.s.  Boebert and her ilk enjoy stoking the flames while pointing their fingers everywhere else.   Carolyn Marie
