Nice work Poly!

Somehow guitar feels more natural to you, could that be right?

I wouldnít say the guitar is more natural to me, just more accomplished. Iíve been playing guitar much longer than Iíve been playing piano. I used to do most of my composing using the guitar, but Iíve been doing more and more on the piano and my playing ability continues to improve. Iíve passed the point of no return and itís under my skin just as much as the guitar. Iím confident that the fluidity will come in good time.

Hmmm, good job!

I found they're very different instruments - when I play them I treat (tonal) keys differently and I tend to use different notes. Also because on piano you press down the key as soon as you want to hear it and on guitar you press the string before you want to hear it (except hammers).

'Course I haven't played guitar in years since it was painful.

When I play the guitar, I don't think of the finger down and the pluck as separate, they feel simultaneous to me. And, if you persist with the pain and bleeding, your fingertips eventually adapt and harden.

Another video, one of my songs this time (another one not on the above list):

Turn Around

By the way, my caveat with these YouTube videos, that I post from time to time, is that they are snapshot sketches, that is, me in the process of developing my ideas. I will eventually (for better or worse) be publishing albums with fully produced versions of my compositions.

I do already have one album of material edited down from two garage bands I had going in my early twenties and one album of material edited down from a short garage band project in my early thirties including some multitrack stuff I produced at that time using a four track tape recorder playing along with a drum machine.

From around fifteen years ago, I have one complete album and ongoing from that time, one nearly finished album, on which the majority of instruments were played by a computer using various peripheral audio devices.

Finally I have from nine years ago an album of material from another garage band project.

I'm undecided as yet as to what to do with those.

I'm very much looking forward to completing my next album and many after that, but I'm basically trying not to wish my life away and just getting on with immersing myself in and enjoying the process of getting there.

Sorry I haven't found the time to construct an answer yet, come down with a bad cold.

Oh it wasn't the fingers, it was the elbow and shoulder... and the other appendages. Guitars weren't designed to be played by women. When St Vincent designed a guitar to fit the female body shape I was both happy and wondering "what took so long?"

A bit quiet here at the moment?

Bonny, have you ever played an Ovation acoustic guitar?

That's the thing about me. As soon as the conversation turns to my breasts, everybody shuts up. :)

Unfortunately I haven't had the pleasure of playing an Ovation acoustic guitar.

There's a nasty virus roaming around at the office. Many colleagues have gotten infected and been forced to stay at home - me, I had no fever but my voice is affected. It's been hoarse for more than a week -I was on nothing but e-mail last week because of it. This week I'm on the line again, we'll see how it goes.

Ovations have that smooth bowl like body. I imagine you would find them more comfortable. I had one a long time ago and got really irritated with it slipping out of my lap while playing.

hmm... I wonder...

They're quite a problem you know... (resists using the word "handful") I have a short body and guitars wouldn't fit under them. Not surprising to me that the finest Dutch female guitarist, Corrie van Binsbergen, plays a bodyless guitar (also known as "stick").

One of my best friends at work didn't get a contract renewal, today was her last day. Very sad to see her go. She's a huge panda fan, so I crocheted a couple for her.

Sad to hear about your friend, Bonny, hopefully, she'll find another job soon.

As for me, after quite a busy period, I'm unemployed for probably two weeks, due to delay in the constuction of the building I must roof. So i'll take a one week vacation with my girlfriend, in the little flat she's got by the sea. With the weather we've had for awhile, it should be very cool.

Bonny: That sucks. Employment is a human right, not something to hold over people's heads.

Aqua: Sometimes there's a silver lining. Enjoy!

She's got a new job, hope that works out for her...

I spent the weekend at my boyfriend's. He took me out shoe shopping, which is something I hate due to having very big feet. First shop was no success, but at the second one there was a pair that fit. So now I have some very fine shoes. Happy!

Looks like exciting stuff happens when I'm not here. Just a brief cycle way, a cement mixing truck broke down and lost its load of concrete, then got stuck in the concrete.

Glad to hear your friend's got a new job, Bonny. And glad you found some nice shoes. Shopping with my girlfriend is something we do quite a lot, it can be rather fun.

Don't worry, Poly, I'll definitely enjoy my little unexpected vacations. I also had a peek at my future roofing site, it's pretty big and should be quite interesting. Plus, it's only a few minutes away, by foot, from my girlfriend's flat, so it should be cool.

Utterly pooped... was set on senior tasks (that's basically the less pleasant side of the work - people who withdraw payments etc) and found there's a fraud active...
