These egg shakers at Musician’s Friends look so fun and will help with some added percussion to any type of music. It has always amazed me watching classic musicians playing, like Fleetwood Mac and seeing shakers or a tambourine and thinking “that can’t possibly do anything” and yet, when you listen to the beat and the hum of the music you can feel these small instruments and you know the music just wouldn’t be the same without them! I have enjoyed many videos of people starting music online using shakers because it fills in some noise without stealing from their voices or the acoustics of their guitars. Definitely a fun gift for your favorite musician!!
So excited to announce that guitar center atlanta is a new location is Alpharetta, Ga which is an awesome looking location with classes offered and all sorts of instruments and gear available! Opened seven days a week and offering lessons of different types each weekday is such great! With Christmas quickly approaching (EEK!) giving the gift of an instrument and/or lessons to an aspiring musician would make an amazing present!!
Musicians friend has the aubert violin bridge available which is absolutely beautiful! Musicians friend describes this as “Made in France. The Aubert Adjustable Violin Bridge features moveable feet which conform automatically to changes in the top curvature, achieving a precise fit without carving the feet.”
I think if you have someone who plays the violin that this would be an extra special and very thoughtful gift! Defnitely check out Musicians Friend and ALL of their violin’s and accessories!!
Why doesn’t anyone reach out to me and tell me how it is? Why do I have a permanent residence in the back ground of humanity with no one looking on, checking in, asking how I feel?
To them I am dead already, and a huge part of me –the part that used to need the slice of the blade to feel alive, knows I am already gone and the blade no longer cries out to me because even the droplets of crimson are no longer felt.
I quit cutting because Jon told me to. Demanded I do –or else.
Now, I tell myself that’s why I don’t cut, but the truth that I hold so deep is that I am scared of not feeling. That no blood will be there to fall. That I am already gone and don’t feel because that’s something the dead don’t do. And if I make it hurt, if I start again, what if I am alive and I can’t stop? What if I can’t go back?
Perhaps I am simply an addict in recovery –not that that is any simpler, but it makes more sense than being kidnapped by Jesus, dominated by man and abused by the lowliest kind.
This is not here. I am not sure where here is or how I will know if my hands have bones or if the shackles I can’t see are what paralyzes me into place.
I am sobbing and I am sorry.
It’s been just over 9 years since I signed that paper and let killers taker her life. 9 Years since I pulled the trigger and the unborn, my unborn died.
One thing I know about me is that I have no clue who I am or what I want.
I am an enigma wrapped in an illusion and I am trapped in this realm, in love with my own delusion.
A place where I am far from safe.
That lacks an escape.
Where nothing else matters because life is ours and it can’t hurt any worse.
My brother plays guitar, I have a guitar and so do both of my children. One thing that always comes in handy is new strings. Lets face it, they break, they can stretch out and they simply need replaced once in awhile. So since my brother was very young we have always put new strings in his stocking for Christmas, knowing he would use them. Morrell Music has a great selection of strings over on Musicians Friend. If someone you know plays any instrument that requires strings then I strongly suggest getting them for the stocking!! Nothing better than getting something you will use as a gift!!
