There is one place that I didn’t think to add to my Fun Monday post of relaxing places. Sometimes when I’m stressed or pissed off I like to come and bang away on this keyboard. I am a very beginner player (the music there is Greensleeves!), but it helps get my mind off stuff. I also enjoy playing a little Fur Elise. 🙂
We bought the keyboard a couple of years ago because R was taking lessons. After the year was completed, it was obvious that he wasn’t really interested. I kept it upstairs, though, because I enjoyed it so much. I’m teaching myself, but it’d be fun to take lessons one day.
I get REALLY nervous about playing in front of someone. I could have a piece down pat, and then I try to play it for a friend and my fingers turn to spaghetti and start shaking. Weird. I don’t even know why it happens because I don’t always feel nervous, but, I guess, my hands do.
