I finally found the time to record my song and I want to share it with you. 😉
The basis of this song was written one evening when I felt absolutely exhausted. (I didn’t know I had covid yet.) My husband asked me if I had played the ukulele yet today. I replied that I hadn’t, that I didn’t even have the energy or the mood. He handed me the ukulele and said: “Play!”
So I played all the songs I could think of. The mood lifted.
And when I didn’t know what to play anymore, I just kept changing chords until one chord progression caught my attention. I wrote it down in the tablature so I wouldn’t forget it. A few days later, the final version was finished.
And because playing the ukulele has healing powers for me, I called the piece “String Therapy”.September 24, 2023 at 1:05 pm #58755The_Bumble_BardParticipant
This is so, so beautiful! It has a very folksy sound to it, and a bit jazzy, too. The story behind it is also really great. So true, there is something wonderfully therapeutic about playing uke. For me, it helps with anxiety. But really amazing job with this! I hope you keep sharing your creations here; they are fantastic! 😊September 24, 2023 at 4:28 pm #58756leb397Participant
@janaq1 lovely. Peaceful. It’s a rainy sorta gloomy day here and it seemed to brighten it up. I admire all those who can compose a song and get it down to memory. Hope Covid wasn’t too bad and now in past. 👏🎼☺️September 25, 2023 at 5:43 am #58759
@The_Bumble_Bard and @leb397 – thank you for your kind words. I’m so happy to be able to share my ukulele playing with someone other than my family and a few friends. With the same enthusiasts and fellow students at Rockclass101. I feel lucky to have found this school and community. There are great teachers here, everything I know I know because of them.
(The covid was, thankfully, short and light.) 🙂
