Sudden craving to rejoin Twitter and / or Facebook. Not sure why. Will sit with it a while, see if it goes away. Most do: for example, in the last four days I've craved four or five guitars, all different styles, none for very long. Meanwhile, at last night's klezmer band rehearsal I asked the bassist whether I should get a nylon-string guitar for the rhythm parts, swapping that in for my current steel-string. He thought about this briefly, then said confidently that L, his wife, the bandleader, would definitely want me to stick with the current instrument. (There's a different timber to the strings that she prefers for this music.)
Glad I didn't rush out and buy the nylon string when that mood struck!
Meanwhile, I had a great time between songs turning our various Eastern European songs (all Dm, Gm, and various major chords) into Brazilian-sounding songs by swapping in major 7th and minor 6th chords and so on. "Der Rebbe from Ipanema!" my friend the bassist joked, joining in. Instead of a new instrument, I think I'm going to buy some bossa nova guitar lessons at the local park district. Love that sound.
Then, if I get any good, maybe something new to play it on. Someday.
