My Updates

New year, new ride, new fundraising activity

Alright. I'm doing the Ride for Cancer again this year as part of the NSCC Trailblazers team. Last year was a bit topsy turvy and I didn't commit until way late into the game because we really didn't know what was going on. This year I know what to expect, and I'm starting with the fundraising early.
So here's the scoop - a couple of years ago I was doing homemade dog treats and that worked really well. As much as I'd like to do that again, I just don't think that it's completely responsible in the current environment. When we all get vaccinated and feel safer then maybe I'll add that to the list, but for now that's on hold. So I was thinking about what I could do virtually to raise money for this worthy cause, and I came up with an idea. And that idea is music.
For a donation of $20, I will record a video of myself playing a song of your choice - that's right, I'm taking requests. You pick the song, I'll figure it out, I'll record it on video, and I'll deliver it to your Facebook page. Or I can send it via Google Drive. Whatever you prefer. Now I do have to lay some ground rules:
* The songs will be performed on acoustic guitar.
* The songs will be transposed by yours truly to that medium. So I'll take requests from across all genres, transpose it into an acoustic version, and that's what you'll get.
* I am what would likely be called an advanced intermediate player. I won't be transposing and Van Halen, Yngvie Malmsteen, John Pettrucci, etc. But I'll happily try just about anything.
* I'll record the video and post it to your Facebook page. What you do with it after that is really up to you. You could yank it down because you can stand my singing if you want. Your choice. But it'll be yours.
So that's this year's scoop. I'm all about earning those donations and I'm happy to do it. So if you're interested, hit me up. Once your donation is confirmed (I can see them on my page), I'll get to work on your song. I should be able to turn most of them around within a week. The lyrics will be the toughest part most of the time, so I'll need that time to learn the song.

Thank you to my Supporters
