It's official. I'm using guitar picks.

I've received feedback that it's hard (impossible!) to hear my guitar on my videos.


Because I'm just teaching myself how to do this stuff.  And, it ain't great.  It's safe to say I am not ready for my guitar solo, yet.

But, I recorded my first video with a guitar pick.  And, if anyone could give me the gumption to do it, it was my Nana Self.  So, this one's for her.

I've had a couple of crappy YouTube remarks.  One person just straight up wrote "Yikes!" on one of my videos.  Did I delete that comment?


Did I delete the video?


Another person told me that someone told them they were "embarassed for me" and said, "What is she DOing posting those videos?" 

What am I doing?  Why am I doing these videos?

Because I want show myself (and you) that I can do this - I can play the guitar. 

More than, that...

I can relax. 

Be chill.

Take a Breather.

Have my recess.

So, there's another video out there for the world, of me hacking away at my guitar. 

And, well - it's gonna be louder, now - 'cause I busted out my flimsy Jesus pick.



Any constructive feedback is welcome - since really need to start taking lessons.

I know it, you know it...we can be open about it.  ;)

And then there are those of us that LOVE listening to you sing and play anything you grace us with. You can rest assured that while there might be real a-holes out there with nothing else to do but rip other people...there are also some of us that are truly inspired by you, your bravery, your intelligence, your beauty, and your soul. In fact, I decided to visit your blog today specifically to gain inspiration. I got it...thanks. :-) Love you! XOXO-C

I needed to hear from my Chasta, tonight. Thank you for encouraging me the way you do. I love you, Mrs. - and, am so lucky to have you as a friend.

Those nay-sayers can just tune in to someone else's videos! :)

I agree w/Chasta! You inspire me and I am amazed by you! I am so very happy that you aren't stingy and that you do share your talents with us instead of hiding them. You should use the gifts God gave you and rejoice in them. You are the most talented person that I know, don't keep it all for yourself, keep up the good work!!!! I am so very proud of you
