Another Relaxing Place

fun-monday-022.jpg

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.

    A great way to unwind and what better than ‘Greensleeves’ one of my favourites too.

    What other music – do you play?

    I too can play, but haven’t in some time. I think my fingers are keeping exercised on the computer. I know how relaxing it can be to sit and play a keyboard or piano. A great addition to your list.

    Music is a good way to relax!I would like to hear you play on your keyboard.Unfortunately I live so far away from you!

    reminds me to sit down and play the piano more often. You are correct. It is very relaxing.

    My piano needs to be tuned.

    I love to be musical but never got the talent. I’m impressed you’re teaching yourself.
