I got the music in me……………

I can’t really say I come from a musical family, though I inherited my natural gift of music from my Dad. Mum used to play the piano from music, and her mother by a method in those days called ‘soh, fah, te’ which I guess is along the lines of Doh a deer etc.
My sister had lessons but couldn’t master the piano, and although we didn’t actually come to blows each time I picked up her ‘new piece’ after two or three hearings, she did once slam the lid down and I was quick enough to get my hands out of the way.
She later had a go at the cello, but that didn’t come to anything, and so bought herself a guitar which I heard her strum twice. I had a go when she was out, putting it across my lap and playing it like a Hawaiian guitar as I couldn’t stretch my fingers on the frets to play any chords.
Neither of my brothers play (as far as I know), and when it comes to the singing stakes, Mum would knock spots off all of us.
I think the music stops with me though. My sister’s youngest daughter used to dabble but I don’t think she followed it with her heart.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
