739 tasting notes

haha suprise mate and tea. it says tisane on the bag and it lead me to assume wrong.
and here i am trying to stop drinking caffeine after 2pm. well, at least it’s a friday. !!!
i’ve been trying to play viola more. i am very much a uber beginner. and can’t read music or anything. i just figure out the main melodies to songs i like and then play them poorly.
my fortune cookie on new years day read “Do it because you love it”.
that’s a pretty nice reminder.

don’t let the music snobs spoil your love of music—reading music can come in handy for sure, but also handy (if not more necessary, imho) is having a great ear and a lot of fun! My fiancé is almost completely blind (as am I), and although he can read braille music, he doesn’t read it at all anymore and learns everything (very quickly) by ear, and works as a music therapist (his primary instrument being the piano). I sing, and when he and I are learning pieces/songs together, it’s all about ears! :)

sounds like you’re doing the kodaly method. very good for strings, very good for emphasizing intuitive playing. =0)

hey thanks for the cheerleading! yay!
i play bass by ear because that’s what you do in bands. but when i started viola the first time a few years back i took lessons and tried to use a book and it just basically sucked all the fun out of an instrument that is already WAY difficult! i quit lessons and put it away for a few years. so now it’s time for a re-do! 2014!
if all i do is play the Hobbit Misty Mountains song and Lykke Li’s ‘I Follow Rivers’ on repeat then so be it.

That’s awesome. :D I did Suzuki method, which is a lot of listening to tapes with the printed music as backup.
