Singing for the Seniors
Here I am with Rachel at a luau at my mother's assisted living facility. It was great fun and gave us an opportunity to sing and strum for Grandma Anna. She especially liked the songs that reminded her of my dad. I have a friend who does this sort of thing on a regular basis and am thinking of trying it out at my mother's place. Mom will be proud and, let's face it, they probably won't be able to hear if I sing a little out of tune! Now if I could only convince Rachel to come and do the hula at the same time...
Not sure where I want to take the ukulele playing...it's really easy for me to fall into the comfortable place of playing chords in their first positions and singing along. However, I DO know that my voice is none-too-great! This could be one reason that many guitarists/ukists (?!) end up learning to play chord melodies, etc. I am working on the latter as well and would like to be able to jam a little. The big problem: so many ideas and so little time. So I gotta figure out what to target and conquer first. Hate to be a jack-of-all trades and master of none!
