    Hey there, Mary Beth. Just found this thread. I'm dusting off my keyboard. Haven't played in over a year! And I'm gonna look out my guitar as well. This is just the impetus I need for Spring.

    Just did my accordion 25. Learning the waltz from The Long Day by Tariverdiev, quite a haunting tune

    I haven't played my electrics in a while so the finger callouses aren't the same as needed for my acoustic strumming. They're coming back though. :-)

    So I came on here over an hour ago, and read your posts. I went up and found the lead for my keyboard, plugged it in, and have been practicing ever since. First hour's practice since I can't remember when! And boy! Do I need it! So I have been doing finger exercises and tried Greensleeves. Not good, but improving.

    Also found my guitar, but my fingers are too stiff after the keyboard. I will stick with that for the minute. At least it's a start! Yee hay!

    Week 1: Wednesday - 60 minute keyboard practice

    Thank you for that lovely bit of music, @Egger29 ! It was really enjoyable to listen to. I wish I had the drive to do everything needed to get into guitar, but wind instruments and some percussion tend to be more my thing.
