    What do you play?

    Hi marcelo,
    I hope u tell more abt your music adventures... Not sure if u mentioned in other threads, but did u have people teach u the viola, for one? I know i should have someone teach me the violin, rather than learning some things wrong, then relearning. Do u have a big church? We do not even have a choir in church, but praying the Lord still leads us in that direction, for how do the younger children know what choirs be when they have not had the chance to hear?!

I started taking violin lessons last summer/fall. I'm still not good at it, but I do love it. Eventually I'd like to take cello lessons! And I sing . Oh, and when I was 16 I played guitar for a week. I couldn't bear it . I'd love to try again sometime...we shall see.
    Yes, neither am i, but i just love it. Maybe i have shared somewhere how, as a child, I had a notebook of our songs in school, and i had that for vacations to carry along and sing, thus memorizing many songs. When we travelled by car, i would also sing along the expressway, so the wind carried away my voice=). Not that i sing well even now, but i just love to, esp in groups or choirs when there is opportunity. I've also mentioned abt our first grandchild, whose face i see light up when i sing songs to.

    Like those who said before, thank you for the music. I didnt grow up listening to music as i studied, unlike some sibs, but now i like to work w/ background sounds, as in this i just posted in the Music forum:

    If i had access to a lute, i should like to be playing such!

    Well, if you have a guitar, all you have to do-I believe-is tune your g string down a half-step to F#

    Hi, Mar! I saw your post only today so please excuse my tardy response!

    Just like you I learned those instruments mostly by myself and started to learn how to read music quite late. When my dad realized I was gifted for music he sent me to a music conservatory, but I had no patience to learn the "right" way and dropped out a few days after enrollment.

    I learned by watching others play and soon I was able to figure out chord changes by ear. In less than a year I put together a rock band and we ventured on tv talent shows.

    We played neatly, but lacked creativity. I knew I couldn't make a living as a guitar player, so I decided to join the air force and that was the end of my career as a musician.

    Funny thing is that some 20 years later I was a captain with VASP Airlines (Brazil) and Ray Conniff borded my plane. He was fond of airplanes and asked me if he could use the jump seat. That was well before SEP 11, 2001 and I said: "Welcome!".

    During the flight Ray Conniff talked a lot about his motor home, his beautiful singers, and said: "As a child my dream was to be a pilot". My response was: "As a child my dream was to be a musician, but unfortunately it's too late for us to change places".

    By then I was already a believer and had started learning to play the violin by myself. It was only then that I started to learn how to read music. Then I realized how important it is to be able to read.

    I learned to play the violin real fast, but using one position only and therefore I never achieved optimum performance. I didn't really want to take the time to learn other positions so the solution was to switch to the viola, tenor part.

    In our rehearsals (never during services) we sing a Capella and that's when I switch from tenor to bass.

    Thanks marcelo. I hadnt realized it's been so long also. I did read this soon after u posted, but miss a lot when i return with only a little time.

    Ray Conniff sounds familiar, because my parents also listened to him back then... What a day... it is only 8:12 here, but already i want to close my eyes=)). I havent held the violin for a few wks already. Then i would have forgotten what i have learned if i dont find time to practice again.
