I like music. That is, I like listening to certain songs. I don’t have a particular “genre” I like, if it sounds good I will listen to it. I can’t listen to the “screamo” music though, it hurts my ears. I can sing, I would never sing publicly or get a recording contract but I’m not tone deaf.
What I can’t do? Play a musical instrument. I have tried, I learnt the guitar for a year at high school, how I passed I have no idea, it took a lot of concentration. I have awful hand eye coordination most of the time. This, coupled with clumsiness, means I am also awful at fast paced team sports like netball.
Another thing I can’t do? Tap along to a beat. I’ll listen, start tapping, and then mess it up! Every time. I watch others tap along and cannot understand why I can’t do it too. I have a friend who can tap on a table with no background music and it sounds brilliant. I may be slightly envious.
Although, back to songs, what I actually like is the lyrics. Similarly to my previous post on Quotes, I like lyrics that convey what I’m thinking about or how I’m feeling. I’ve sent “songs” to others as a means of expression.
Just another random post, thinking out loud..
