Hear Me Prowlin’.

Hear me growlin’.

Good morning.

Here’s hoping that today is as beautiful a day as yesterday.

The song of the day is “Can’t You Hear Me Knockin'” by the Rolling Stones. It is being brought to you today by Mike Tango.

Yesterday was a very good day.

It is surprising how little music I listen to these days. You know, given that I’m living a Year of Songs. Mostly I just listen to Harry Potter. But occasionally, something strikes my fancy and I obsess over it. For about an hour.

Yesterday I must have listened to this song, minus the crap at the beginning and applause at the end, about thirty 30 times…

I’ve posted it before, but yesterday it just got stuck on repeat.

Perhaps it is because I got a tiny guitar.

I realized at some point that I was going to need a guitar for many photos this year and I can’t in good conscience borrow somebody’s guitar and, repeatedly, expose it to the elements and/or the abuse of me dragging it allover the place for photos.

So I bought one.

For $35.

It showed up yesterday.

And it is amazing.

It is child size guitar. Translate that as “the perfect size for me”. I’ve been wanting a tiny guitar forever. And now I have one.

After Le Duc gets back, I think I’m gonna see if he’ll help me build a case for it. Because there are no hard cases for kid guitars. It’s gig bags or nothin’.

I was so excited about it, I ordered myself an amazing strap and everything. It hasn’t arrived yet. Soon.

I have no intention ever of tuning it or learning to play it. Which means that I’ll probably end up doing both.

Just so I can learn that Gillian Welch song.

Or maybe this…

Yeah. That just happened.

Wanna see my tiny guitar?


Tiny Guitar

Isn’t it adorable?

Giant calendar. Tiny guitar. Short pants. Striped socks. Story of my life in 2016.

Today is going to be an interesting day.

Coffee and brainstorming with the Blacksmith this morning. Work. Studio. Photo. More work. Massage with Jitterbug.

And I’ll probably listen to the Gillian Welch song a couple of more times for good measure.

That’s my day.

See ya’ tomorrow.

More soon. ~SC
