So my short holiday turned into a whole week of being away.

As I was away, I have been learning the piano, as well as playing the recorder mainly because my boys have been taking piano lessons, and I've been reading their materials and opting into watching youtube videos about playing the piano. I now know the C scales for both hands and I can do the left hand part in "Pink Panther". It came to me that when Miro, my younger son decided that he'd want to learn guitar instead because he sees that as "even harder" instrument than the piano, that I actually had an instrument of my own that I had started to play, but had forgotten as time passed by.

Bad mobile phone photo of my recorders.

I play the recorder, both alto and soprano (the one that's often used in schools). I have invested in two good instruments after I heard the song Scarborough Fair in radio, and really wanted to learn to play it on recorder, learned it, and then haven't played for almost a year (if not longer than a year, I have forgotten).

Well, anyway, Yesterday I found this video on Youtube and it got me fired up and practicing it again:

I also ordered a book, probably a pretty difficult one, but definitely something I think might improve my playing if I put my 150% effort into it. I might learn something before collapsing under the weight of the task. :D I might even post videos on my progress.

Well, that's all for today, I hope everyone had fun reading this.

Apparently I wrote this article in a style similar to Cory Doctorow. Funny. :)
