It's my firm intention to do some gigs at regional level after retirement, three or four years from now. Not for the money, just for fun and "to stay tuned". As a guitar player I need serious targets like preparation of the next lesson with my teacher or playing at the 70th birthday of my mother-in-law. Of course I can never compete with a professional musician. But - hopefully - I will be good enough to entertain an easy and casual audience.
I applaud you for your energy and enthusiasm. You inspire me. The serious preparation you invest for an upcoming lesson or anticipation of playing at your mother-in-law's 70th Birthday is inspiring for me. You bring joy to us older, ambitious players. Thank you!
On a personal note, I played several pieces at my Rotary Club lunch meeting. The reception I received was gratifying and enthusiastic. The owner of the Facility asked if I might play at the Sunday Brunch. My repertoire is at the moment a wee bit short to take that on, but I was flattered that he asked. Unfortunately a shoulder injury has required that I take some time off during physical therapy.
Thank you for the positive input you always bring to Delcamp.
Oh, and I am at the 70 mark and as enthusiastic as ever.
