If you would be given a chance to choose one talent, what would your choice be?
Or, would you rather prefer choosing or you want it to be innate in nature?
The ability to instantly manifest my thoughts into reality whenever I chose to.
Some runner ups would be being able to: see the future, read minds, turn invisible, or travel "instantly" to anywhere in the globe at the snap of my fingers. (One minute I'm in Paris, France and the next minute I'm on a beach in Bora Bora, Tahiti)
If you are talking about something more (earthly) then I would probably choose to be a movie actor or singer/song writer at the top of my game.
Thank you for asking this question. I would want to play acoustic guitar. I tried. I can't. My fingers can't hold down the strings. I would want to play acoustic guitar to bring to parties with my friends and have us sing around a campfire like John Denver sings about in "This Old Guitar")http://youtu.be/m__yVh5h3e0 and "Poems and Prayers and Promises". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLbaRoh9wR8 (I'm assuming I'd be able to sing better as well if I could play guitar. I'd keep myself on key.)
But sitting around a campfire with friends and family singing is a fond wish and out-of-reach dream for me. One thing that's very hard for me to understand is how people who can sing and play guitar take it so much for granted and don't share nearly often enough. One Christmas my former husband and I decided to ask each other to exchange some non-material gift. I made about 5 loaves of his favorite date-nut bread and cut it in slices and froze it so he could have it during the weeks ahead. He agreed to bring out his guitar and play some Christmas songs that we could all sing together. However, this must always be done with an open heart.
If this post does anything, I would hope that those reading it who are able to sing and play guitar would just plan a time when the family is gathered to overcome whatever holds you back from sharing and bring out the guitar and create a peak experience for your friends or family even if there are only one or two members who would love it. The person who says to you, "Please, could you bring out your guitar," is the person whose soul longs for you to do it.
I have been learning to play classical guitar for about 4 yrs now, at times it is frustrating, painful, increasingly difficult but I have mastered the basics. It gets easier as you go along, never give up and never stop playing.
S, I gave up. I just can't hold the strings down. I can't get a decent chord and that was when I was 30 years younger! I do LOVE the acoustic guitar. I listened to your link. Lovely. My right brain craves lyrics though sung in a tenor voice
Wonderful! I hope that you will finally be able to learn playing the guitar and be able to sing beautiful songs from the heart. XD
I would like the ability to instantly play a piece of music I hear, unfortunately after only 4yrs of playing I am still a novice, however I have the rest of my life to get better but a 55 I am not to sure how long that will be.
I would like to think that one day I shall be able to entertain myself with being able to play like this man http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGipFrts … ure=relmfu
May what ever you wish to do you will be successful and enjoy to the fullest.
It seems that a lot of people here wanted to become musically excellent. And, John Feeley is a good choice as an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I wish you will be as good as him in playing Cello suite no.1 in D by J.S. Bach. :-)
Recently I have been wishing I could sing beautifully in the classical Indian style of music.
The talent I have now. There is no better you, than you, right.

Some people, including myself, dream of spending my honeymoon in a quite motel style with a sense of nature off the town.To the fact that, I don't care about 5 stars hotel service if it were without nature sense. Perhaps, you might have had your honeymoon if you were married. But what if you were...
