Oldfud version: Allegra’s not writing fiction so she’s playing music instead. It’s annoying, but ok.
I buy new instruments to encourage me to hear music differently and write songs.
The twangy box now has a number of tunes to go with it.
One is “Form a Line (a protest song)”
One is “Elder Funeral Song”
One is “Horseback Song” <—- newest as of last night
One is “At the Aerie” <—- oldest – started working on it as soon as I got Rowena
One is a new version of an old instrumental “Grieg”
One is “I’m too cheerful for my pants”
The damned thing is virtually impossible to tune and the frets are in the wrong places. I shall check with a luthier. But I don’t care. When it’s close to being in tune, it’s a remarkably plangent and docile instrument and it doesn’t hurt me to play it. Otto, unfortunately, is putting my shoulder out of kilter when I play, and guitars are approaching impossible.
