      Yesterday I was in a reflective mood, today was approaching.

      So I decided to play a bunch of songs and choose one of the Ramuda and one song that go together well.

      Sooo….Then I decided to ride the full Ramuda and match each one to a song….

      Matches thus far :

      The “Tree”/Euro OM : “Sweet Melissa”

      The Otis Taylor H-13 Madi/Italian :  “St. James Infirmary ”

      Three more to work out today……My Revelation/reflection ?? ?

      “I’m Right Where I’m Supposed To Be “…..

      Yesterday is behind….

      Well the THE MARTIN….Matched with : Croce, Goodman, Buffett, The Byrds.

      I guess 27 years of aged EIR/Sitka , thousands of hours of playing/holding/traveling……….makes for an old friend who has a great voice…..a voice that brings back lots of memories,

      Reflections /Revelations : I have a fine Ramuda of guitars in both voice and  visual……… and I’m starting to get the hang of  playing them……I can begin to bring out their individuality.

      REALIZATION : I still have so much to learn…….compared to Y’All.

      The feeling of having a lot to learn never goes away.

      It’s the travel not the destination that makes us.

      🙂
