Music, Emotion and Learning the Guitar

On setting off on my holidays recently I decided to take some reading material. Rather than going for the usual crime thriller I went for “Music and Communication” by Terence McLaughlin.  Ok, not everbody’s first choice but it’s been lying on the shelf staring at me for a while so I thought, now’s the time. It’s a pretty heavy read but it certainly did get me thinking. One of the first questions it addresses is  “Why Music?” What are it’s origins, why as listener’s do we gain so much…

My June 4 recital - beta-blockers

Now that more than a month has gone by, I reflect upon my first-ever solo recital that I gave for friends and family last June.  I played for about 50 minutes in front of about 17 friends and quite a few members of my family in the outdoor covered patio of my in-law's home. 


It was quite an undertaking for me because I suffer from debilitating performance-anxiety that has interfered with my playing for many years now.  I decided to take a short-cut...propolnolol.  I asked the…

What a bummer

Today my Mother passed away after a long bout with lung cancer and emphysema. This almost right on top of Larry (the drummer for the band who I've posted about before) passing last week. Jackie and I went to Larry's wake (see posting) and funeral this past Monday.

As the week progressed the telephone calls from my brother, who lives in NH where my Mother occupies an in-law apartment in his home, were very discouraging. She had started to fade very badly and was having difficulty…

Montreal Guitar Show

I'm in Montreal, closing out a busy day at the 2011 Guitar Show. The show is held against the backdrop of - and smack in the middle of - the huge Montreal Jazz Festival. The guitar show features luithiers from around the world, with builders from the US, Canada, France, the UK, Asia, and more. The show is quite busy and well attended, but still very comfortable for players checking out guitars. The room, holding tables from about 100 luthiers, is quiet enough for a quick test drive right at the… Continue
