Hi, I am back. Not only from China but also to the live journal.
I am now in my fourth week into my holidays.
Since this week I am relaxing a bit, I think.
This means not that I am lazy. ;-)
There's loads to do. Gardening, reading, going to the museum, doing Pilates, listening to organ concerts and trying to learn the guitar.
Its now 15 month since I started again to play the guitar after more than 20 years doing no music at all.
and me played some music together for the first time in history!
We played "A Port" from "Sir Gordon of Straloch's Lute Book" arranged for harp and guitar by shrike_15
. I think it came of very well.
It is now two weeks since shrike_15
and me went to Bremen to visit an old colleague and frind of her and mathiasroesel
For me it was a first time to meet this to people. It was a wonderful and inspiring weekend.
It was also the first time we met someone who we came in to contact via the internet. Mathias was not a complete stranger because I knew he is member of the German lute society
I am also a member even if I don't play the lute (jet). One of the founder is Matthias Schneider, my first guitar and lute teacher.
Mathias Rösel promised to visit us in the near future and that we play some music together. I am absolutely looking forward to it.
Next week Shepper is going to maintenance my Fender Bass guitar. So I can have not only fun with "old" music but also do some Rock 'n Roll as Shepper would say. For me its more everything from Abba to Zappa but no techno or "Volkstümliche Musik".
