hope you dont mind if I get a little sappy here, but I thought I'd share a little about recent events.
lately I've been composing folkish singer/songwriter type songs on my octave mandolin (and guitar) and I've been having a blast. but I get a little bummed that there's not too many folks to play with, at least folks that have time (we've all got young kids these days). the wife used to play guitar, and I've long wished that we could play together, but health and other life stuff have been in the way.
so I wrote a little song called Be My Nancy that was inspired by Norman and Nancy Blake. it's basically a longing to play music together. and she took up the challenge! we got away for the holiday weekend and we worked on harmonies and such and we've been having a great time.
so tonight we did a little open mic at the local coffee shop. we did a couple songs together that we've been working on, and they were well received. it's been so cool to do something together that we both enjoy, and here's hoping for more to come. we're tenatively planning on recording some of our stuff before the next baby comes (December) so hopefully you'll be hearing more from us soon :-)
if anyone has any experience as a husband/wife duo, please share some advice. thanks!
