I love carting around this a little travel guitar that my mother in law gave me. It's a little Yamaha which sounds pretty nice despite its size. I've had a lot of guitar players tell me that it has some decent tones to it. And then I remember that the strings for about 7 years old...and it still sounds fine. Enables me to keep practicing when I'm on a trip so I dont get rusty on the songs, or I can even write songs while I'm traveling.

It's crazy. It might take 10 minutes to come up with a good chord progression, and another 10 minutes for a good vocal melody. Maybe it would take up to an hour for both. But LYRICS seem to take me a couple of years. I've gotta figure out a new way to come up with lyrics. Maybe I just need more coffee...

Someone sent me a blog they started regarding the differing sounds of Come Thou Fount. Thought I'd share it. Back in the mid-nineties, my friend "Sky" and I would occasionally sing the son at a wedding or at an occasional church service. In Glorietta NM, we played it at a conference where a guy named David Crowder was also playing. He'd never heard it before, and put it on an album. I've been meaning to record it since I can remember hearing it... I do believe I need to add some drums to the version I have now. Anyway, enjoy the blog, it is a collection of many differing versions of the song recorded and displayed around the net.
