I have to admit, the tin whislte part had me laughing, but man what a story!

I was almost the same. I really wanted to play guitar, but my parents, for some reason, thought I wasn't serious. My grandmother, who liked to stir the pot, gave me a cheap guitar for my 13th birthday and I fooled around on it until I taught myself to play.

Corinne Bailey Rae

I decided to give this one a spin again. It's not a kind of music I generally listen to, but I find her pleasant. I like a couple of the songs a lot, but most of it I would probably only use as background music. I bought it because I liked her performance of "Put Your Records On" on SNL. She looked so happy to be performing.

I see she's going to be on the Live From Abbey Road: Best of Season One Blu-ray. Anyone planning on purchasing that one? I would love to know how the quality is. The price is decent.

Murph,

A really nice story, thanks for posting that. I always wanted music lessons too (piano), but we could not afford it growing up. I hit the daily number in NY in 1994 ($500), and used that money to buy a guitar and amp, and lesson books. I was lucky enough to work with a couple of guys who could play guitar also, and they taught me the basics. After years of practice, I'm no pro, but I can play 90% of the chords without need of the chord chart, and thoroughly enjoy playing along while listening to music (Rhythm only, no lead).

My sons will not have that disadvantage. I want to give them every opportunity to be able to play music, as well as listen to it.

Edited to add this picture:

\:\) Now thats a well applied phrase. I never played professionally, but I can't think of anything else in my life that has brought me such pleasure over a long period of time.

I feel exactly the same. I had my mothers violin rebuilt (it was in pretty rough shape) so that it is available for my daughter should she want to pick it up as well.

Electrelane - The Power Out

Both this album and No Shouts No Calls stand out to me as Electrelane's best. I would highly recommend either. The sound quality on both are good, too, though I noticed hiss on this one at higher volume. Still, the vocals in "The Valleys" and the drums and piano in "You Make Me Weak at the Knees" do a lot to make me appreciate my Axioms. I would use both tracks to showcase my system.
