mapsedge: Me at Stone Bridge Coffee House (music at the coffee shop 2)
I hadn't even picked up my guitar since the Sunflower Feis fundraiser ceili in early April and it showed Saturday night. I made a lot of mistakes, completely forgot the lyrics to an entire song - or at least jumbled them bad enough that I might as well have - and couldn't get some of the more complex fingering for a few songs down. The muscle memory for them was just gone.

As usual, though, my audience was kind, generous, and perhaps most important, forgiving.There were a few people who'd not heard me before, so I may have come away with a few more fans.

I don't know if the evening knocked me completely out of my depressive funk, but I did leave feeling better than when I arrived, with the determination to keep the guitar out of its case and near to hand. There are a couple of new songs I want to work up,including this one: https://goo.gl/xRI5f1, which I came across quite by accident and caught my imagination and seems to be in my sweet in spot.
