Music, Microwaves, and Ramadan.

I recorded me playing Pachelbel's Canon on my guitar today... quite a few little mistakes and pauses, and you can hear Eeyore barking once or twice, but I decided to keep it anyway. I added a Bass Boost after recording it, because if I plug into my amplifier I add that and it sounds a lot better.
Originally I was trying to record it with harmonies, but it didn't work because it's in tablature so I don't have specific rhythm.

And so this doesn't become a useless little post, I'll add a few things I wanted to add yesterday, but forgot.

Our microwave broke. It's not too bad without it, just more pots and pans to wash later on, and it means no zatar for a few days because all our pita bread is frozen. That's the worst part of it, I love having zatar (zatar is a bunch of herbs, like thyme, with sesame seeds mixed in. You dip pita bread in olive oil, then in the zatar, then eat it. It's really good. I also like putting spreadable cheese on the bread and sprinkling zatar on).

And it's Ramadan here. *sigh* Not too much of a pain, since we live in a walled compound, but even still we can't eat or drink outside from sunrise til sunset. It'll be over soon, though, and with the end of Ramadan comes Eid and our conference in Oman. Hurrah! I can't wait, last year was lots of fun, 'course, people have gone and new people have come, so it'll be different, but still...

You're welcome!

Aren't I just so wonderful like that? (:

Oh, and BTW, how do you listen to your playing again? I clicked on the link, but nothing happened...

Click it, then there's a "Click here to download," and click that and wait.

applause for the lovely rendition of 'Canon in D'! Keep up the good work. You inspire me to go practice my piano.
