  • A new Improv I did with my Taylor GS Mini


    Recommended Posts

    Hey everyone,

    I hope that everyone is doing ok and not having any coronavirus health problems. I lost my job and I pray that next September we will get funding to start again. It was the BEST teaching job I ever had and it took me so long to get it! I am an ESL teacher for adults. Anyway I did a video using my Taylor Gs Mini and a few iPad apps. I hope you like it. I'm not really good at improvising on the guitar but Steve's triads workshop helped fuel my creativity and I am pretty happy with the way it came out. It got featured on a blog which is very cool.  I hope you like it

    Neat. Wish I was out on a lake right now. Sorry for the job loss, been there/done that years ago. Also, I"m a GS Mini "convert," back in 2016. Best Wishes.

    Very nice and relaxing Maria 🙂 Thought I was listening the "The Spa" channel on cable tv. N

    Thanks Maria. Very nice. Soothing. It's also nice to see what you are doing. I''d like to share at some point too.

    The job loss. Well, like Odie, been there, done that. Hang in there. You live in a beautiful place.

    Thanks again to all of you that listened and your kind words. We are okay in NY but it is really scary. I get so nervous when we have to go to the store. We are now trying to put an order on line but no "time" yet for delivery. we are doing fine for now with groceries so hopefully I can start getting it delivered when we run out of stuff. I really don't want my husband to go out anymore (or me) One of my co worker's husband has died from this and I am just really in a worried state.

    Music sure helps

    Stay well everyone

    Maria

    Thank you so much. It is scary. I am starting to know more people who have it or who sadly died. I pray we can get a handle on this soon.

    Take care and thank you for your prayers and good wishes

    THANKS so much Mandy. I am glad you liked it. 
    and yes i got the groceries 6 days after ordering them and half the stuff was wrong or missing but I am still grateful that I was able to cook a nice Easter Dinner.

    I am also going to try and focus on the positive and maybe in Sept I will have my job back if we get the Goverment funding
