After a lifetime of being able to sing, I just played an instrument along with my singing for the VERY FIRST TIME!

OK, so it was Hush Little Baby, and in not a great key for, you know, actually singing, and it has two easy chords, but I still feel accomplished!

And Mr Brammers congratulated me. And then laughed when I made my ukuleles kiss each other in excitement.

And I may need to buy a Baritone ukulele, because it would be nicer in that pitch ...

But YAY!

In other important news for the day, HAPPY BIRTHDAY [info]kayoko ! I know you're Glee-ing at the moment, but your cheery posts always make me smile, and I hope that there has been an avalanche of joy in your day!

And [info]al_hazel , I hope that wherever you are and whatever you're doing, it's a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you, too!

Well done you! That's a lot harder to do than people think, if they haven't tried it :-)

I have wanted to play an instrument to sing with for so many years, it's really exciting! I have to consciously limit my practise time because I am straining my neck and getting calluses on my fingertips ;-) More stretching! More theory!

I can sing and I can play the piano, but doing both at the same time - although I can do it - usually means that I'm not doing either of them as well as I ought to be. (One of my current aims to to be able to sing and play "Someone Like You" - I can do both separately, but I'd love to be able to do both at once, and I'm sure it will just take a bit of practice!)
