sapphire, Harbor, Raphael


Harbor: I already know how to play the violin, so plucking at least I've got the hang of. Aug 28, 2014 21:48:37 GMT -6
Harbor: that fit it well enough for me to pluck along without being dissonant. Aug 28, 2014 21:48:13 GMT -6
Harbor: always been extremely difficult for me so admittedly I'd rather learn things by ear than by paper, I think it'll be easier for me to pick up, but that presents its own challenges of course. I want to be able to listen to any song and find the notes Aug 28, 2014 21:48:05 GMT -6
Harbor: I managed to learn a simple version of Cat Power's cover of Sea of Love but haven't played it in weeks now so wouldn't be able to play it offhand. I don't know anything about it other than that, and still forget the names of the strings. Music reading has Aug 28, 2014 21:47:28 GMT -6
Zoom: Are you learning any particular songs right now, or trying to get the basics first? Aug 27, 2014 20:54:06 GMT -6
Zoom: That's awesome though haha Aug 27, 2014 20:53:36 GMT -6
Zoom: they're always kind of ...sweet and pleasant and plucky, haha Aug 27, 2014 20:53:22 GMT -6
Zoom: unlike say a violin Aug 27, 2014 20:53:19 GMT -6
Zoom: The great thing though is that it's hard to make a ukulele sound genuinely horrible Aug 27, 2014 20:53:15 GMT -6
Zoom: Ukes!!! Love it Aug 27, 2014 20:53:02 GMT -6
Harbor: Haha Zoom I have an old Ukulele from my grandma, still YouTube lessoning it. My poor roomies. Aug 26, 2014 21:05:50 GMT -6
sapphire: Heh. Listen to your mother! Cat bites can be nasty. Aug 24, 2014 15:17:47 GMT -6
Zoom: Haha Mom's in Montreal getting my sister situated and she's just getting so maternal, sending me all these emails like "Did you put polysporin on it yet???" Aug 23, 2014 19:53:26 GMT -6
Zoom: It was kind of a bite-and-slice, as I tried to pull my hand away. It bled but it's not deep, just super-infected. Aug 23, 2014 19:53:20 GMT -6
sapphire: Ouch! Did it break skin? Aug 23, 2014 19:36:32 GMT -6
Zoom: No seriously though it's all red around the bite Aug 22, 2014 23:09:28 GMT -6
Zoom: This was before his cat bit me btw, fuckin cats Aug 22, 2014 23:07:01 GMT -6
Zoom: Also some nice wine Aug 22, 2014 23:06:42 GMT -6
Zoom: Oh dudes I have a harmonica now! Chrome gave it to me, Imma get my mom evicted Aug 22, 2014 23:05:35 GMT -6
Zoom: Yep I'm pretty good with what I have here please and thanks! Aug 22, 2014 23:05:09 GMT -6
