Music-Obsessed

Suddenly I became music obsessed and I don't know where it came from. I bought a lot of sheet music a couple months ago and now I am simultaneously trying to learn Easter Parade, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, The Entertainer, and Night and Day on the piano. (But don't worry, I bought loads more sheet music than that!) I was also trying to play Easter Parade on the ukulele. I've only played the ukulele for a week and have only learned piano before that, so the tips of my fingers were in for a surprise!

Well anyway I've also been trying Has Anybody Seen My Gal on ukulele. And now every new song I run into I look up the tabs for. I've been working on You and I by Ingrid Michaelson for the ukulele (because that's what is actually used in the song). I also like the band Psapp but it is EXTREMELY difficult to find tabs for their songs. I don't even know if it's possible. But right now I'm trying to work out chords for their Monster Song. What I've come up with sounds alright to me, but as someone who cannot sing for the life of them, I don't know how well to trust myself. But I play the chords how I like.

Yay for being music-obsessed!! This is StepsInTime from youtube,by the way. You picked amazing songs.

I wish I could play the ukulele. That's freaking awesome. I've always loved that instrument...

Much of the internet is a waste of time, to the extent that you can't find a reasonable recipe for ghee or central New York salt potatoes, but every once in a while you find something that makes you say

O brave new world,
That has such people in't!

as did Miranda in The Tempest.
