I am amazed how the vocals and two guitar parts so smoothly blend together in the video of Peter, Paul and Mary singing "A'Soalin."
For the most part, I sing and play solo mostly for senior citizens and children. Me, my guitar, and my tapping foot. It takes an effort to combine vocals and guitar, and I know that I can always improve my skill level.
On occasion, I am joined by Larry Dykstra, and we sing as a duo. Sometimes I get to sing with Jim Newton and Paul Hill. At other times, I get to sing with our 1st Church String Band. And, on the rare occasion, I get to sing with one our church choral groups.
And I love it!!!
I love the blending of vocal melodies and harmonies. I love different instrument working together to make music.
Sometimes, it sends a cold chill down my spine, in a good sort of way. I feel energy through the power of the music, and the good the music can do for those who also sing it, but who also hear it.
It's a very good feeling indeed.
God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>
