A Song For God. God Blesses Everyone.

Updated on May 28, 2012

I have worked a long time on my song. I bought my first guitar about forty two years ago. I could never learn how to manipulate my fingers correctly to play the cords. I would put my guitar away in a closest for months, even years. I did not know how to tune it correctly either.

I sold that electric guitar probably for seventy five dollars. I wish I would have kept it. I am not sure if it was a valuable guitar or not. It looked like one , but it was a Yamaha.

I bought another cheap electric guitar, could not play it, and could not tune it so I sold it for about what I paid for it.

For a long time I did not touch the guitar until about ten years ago. I bought a nice one for about four hundred dollars on sale, and I still have it. I put it in a closet a few years, and took it out and started finger picking it , and using a guitar tuner. Do not buy a guitar unless you buy a tuner. If I would have been on the right track, I would have bought a tuner the first time I bought a guitar. Why ? Because if your guitar is not in tune, then how can you tell if your playing your cords correctly ?

I was still lousy with cords, and I still am. I just cannot enjoy using the cords because my fingers are not long anyway. My fingers are not long , and then.

One day after work I saw a really fun movie called " Oh Brother Where Art Thou." It was a hit movie. There was plenty of hillbilly, and old time country music in it, and I fell in love with the banjo.

I told Joann I had to have a banjo. I saw a nice one eight years ago in music store. It had a price tag of around five or six hundred dollars. It was too expensive , but I saved up for it and bought it because it was worth at least eight or nine hundred, maybe even more. It was a beautiful chrome Fender professional banjo, but it was heavy. I still have it.

I practiced with it a lot, and really got pretty good with it. Never could play a song from a book, or from my mind, but I could at least create pretty music from my imagination. So I would play the banjo all the time. I even played with it while sitting in the car while Joann shopped for groceries in the stores.

I worked a lot so I bought what I wanted to buy in the line of musical instruments. I bought Becky a nice keyboard, and stand to put it on, but she never used it. Sunk almost five hundred in that.

We still have the keyboard. It is quite large, and lovely. All my friends at work danced wildly when I played the banjo. You could see my friend hopping around as I strummed the instrument.

I bought another banjo that was lighter called a Lotus. Paid a hundred dollars for it from a pawn shop. I really enjoyed playing it a lot. Then I bought two more banjos, a Conrad, and some other name brand one, and also a banjo guitar. A combination banjo, and guitar sounding instrument. I am not crazy about the sound of it. Sunk two hundred fifty in it.

Then I even bought a violin. I think I could have learned a little about it, but then went back to fooling around with the acoustic guitar after experimenting with the electric mandolin .

I started getting better with the guitar when I stopped worrying about cords. I kept a few easy cords in mind, but then decided that I would fool around with some tunes I liked.

I finally realized that I needed to connect my tunes if I was ever to create a song so I experimented with tunes until I liked what I was creating. The only problem was that I had to play my guitar out of tune to play the song I was working on, so I decided that I would keep two guitars out of tune specifically tuned to the song I was experimenting on because I could play the song with my short fingered hands.

This sounds really ridiculous, and it is, but I had to work around my finger difficulties so I could enjoy playing my song.

So a lot is invested in one song that I am still in the process of completing. It has taken me two years, maybe three to work on my song, but I like it. Joann and Becky like it.

I simply do not play regular music. I only play music that I compose.

Someone who understands , and plays instruments correctly probably could say right off what notes I am using. I have no idea what the heck I am doing, but I have nearly thirty instruments, that got me to doing what I enjoy.

Some might say I may have wasted a lot of money, but my one song is worth a thousand instruments, and the forty years it took me to get to it because I think it is nice. As for all the instruments, they are just investments that will bring back money that Joann , and Becky can appreciate.

I hope Joann, and Becky will benefit from the song I composed someday. I still have words to add to it, and I must play it in different variations in many different ways because it turned out so lovely I believe.

Someday I will acquire music rights if necessary for it, and hopefully it will earn royalties for Joann, and Becky . I don't think God would mind it if my wife, and crippled daughter would earn some money from it.

Someday when it is finished, I will find a beautiful singer to sing it, and play the song on and acoustic guitar.

It is a song made for God, and created for God. When I am finished with it I will share the words with everyone on a hub.

I hope one day it will be played in churches, or in very large halls, or even by and Orchestra with musicians.

It has been recorded, but it must have perfect words. It is a prayer song to God. God, our creator of Heaven and Earth. I would say God was the investment.


God Bless Everyone.
