They’re Red Hot


Coming home to music, fingerpickin’ good!

Ragtime fingerpicking started playing in my Reader all by itself, and I followed it to SoundCloud and found Fingerstyle_guitar’s  stream. I’d invite you all to take a look.

There’s a bit of blues, such as St James Infirmary Blues, a Russian Folk Song, some blues harp, and even a kazoo, which got me some contented giggles.

Jangle Blues

My musical Morning Wake-me-ups have moved to lunchtime warm-me-ups on the back step in the sunshine! Here’s the latest… my fingers are warmer which helps. And yet I still have glitches in my timing. Need a brain tune-up methinks!


Why do I do it? Hehehehe


Gotta get better.

Here’s my morning warm up, and then a bit of blues. Yeah it  comes out different every time…

Over on the sidebar – there on the right – at the top, you can click on the link and share your sounds with me at SoundCloud.

What are you practising at home? A bit o’ guitar? A dabble on piano? Fantastic live music at your local jam night? Whatever it is, I’d love to hear it.

Let’s get creative!
