Reduced learning curve

Did you know that traditional banjos have four or five strings? Today I learned about a musicians friend banjo that has six strings! I think that is a great cross-over instrument for people that have learned to play the guitar and now want to learn to play the banjo. I enjoy watching people play the banjo, but never learned anything about what notes the strings are. Now I’m wondering if the six strings on this special banjo are the same notes as on a six string guitar!

Father in Heaven (free clip art)

If roses grow in Heaven, Lord, pick a bunch for me
Place them in my Daddy’s arms and tell him they’re from me
Tell him that I love and miss him, and when he turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon his cheek and hold him for awhile
Remembering him is easy, I do it everyday.
There’s an ache within my heart that will never go away.

Happy Father’s Day, Daddy!

Unique guitars

Have you ever seen a guitar without a big hole in the middle, behind the strings? I never had, until I saw a picture of an Ovation guitar! When I saw a picture of the guitars without a big hole in the body, I was fascinated! So I decided to learn a little about the guitar, and learned that it was designed by an aeronautical engineer who was fascinated with guitars and decided to redesign the guitar. I went onto YouTube to try to find a video that explained more about the details of the different designs, but after watching several videos about the company, I finally gave up.
