Serenade without words.

A family friend once lent us a cd of his compositions. Though I don’t really listen to instrumentals before, I wasn’t skeptic when we got the cd. Looking back, I am thankful for that introduction.

I have never played any musical instrument before. The only exceptionsㅡwhen I was young and there was this book my Mom bought. It came with a kiddie xylophone. I remember trying to play the nursery rhymes in that book. Another exception would be music class during freshman year in highschool. We were required to play the flute. I wasn’t really good at it, though.

The final exception is now. Because recently I learned how to play the guitar. Though I still can’t make the Bm sound right, I can play songs with the basic and other chords that aren’t as complicated as the Bm and F chords. If you’ve read the text posts on me ranting how hard it is to strum and sing and think of the chords simultaneously, you’d understand.

Now back to Yiruma-ssi 이루마, the pianist I’ve liked ever since the day I played that cd from Dad’s friend. It’s late at night and I’ve been watching his live performances on YouTube and I feel in love. With him, with his music, I don’t really know. I feel in love and I feel beautiful. Not talking about my looks there; it means I’m “feeling” it. Sense of touch, see?

Anyway, if I ever find the motivation inspiration dedication determination I’d probably start learning how to read notes. Then how to play them.

Have I ever told you what made me decide to learn the guitar? It started with this one song from an artist I love. Song title: Your Universe. The artist? Rico Blanco. Listen to it if you have 3-4 minutes of spare time.

If this case with Yiruma-ssi is similar, then I’d probably learn another musical instrument. If, once again, with my soul touched and my heartstrings tugged, then I’m off to another adventure. Lovely.
