Tonight I just wanted to decompress. It has been a stressful couple of days at work and I just wanted an escape by not thinking about it. My back is still ehhhhh so I wanted to rest so I can have happy fun times with my friends tomorrow. First I went to Half Price to see if they had any GMAT practice books, but they didn’t. I bought only one book for $5 and was very pleased with myself.
I came home and spent the rest of the night practicing my guitar. I have decided to focus on this song:
My drum teacher told me yesterday that my voice has a Norah Jones quality to it and that he likes the way I sing (I’m always amazed when someone likes my singing because I think I sound horrible). I can do a semi-passable impression of Norah Jones so figured it would be appropriate to learn one of her songs first.
I wanted to learn to play “Don’t Know Why” but the guitar part is more melodic and challenging. “Come Away With Me” is one of my favorites from her, so I figured I’d try this one instead. The chords for this song are pretty easy, but I am taking a break tonight because I hit the F chord. The F chord is the reason why I gave up guitar back when I first tried it in 2004, but I will learn it. Tomorrow.
