Don’t Break Any Guitar Strings
At 11:30am, as I was setting up my gear at the Music Under New York spot at the 59th street subway station, a lady sitting on the bench near by said to me “How are you?” She recognized me and was happy to see me. What a nice start of the day.
A guy told me “I have a slogan for you: ‘The Music that’s Always Sharp’”.
I agreed with him that there is a nice word game in there and we both agreed it wasn’t perfect and needed some more thought. Anybody have a suggestion for a musical saw slogan for me?
There’s a guy wearing glasses who whenever he sees me always says “don’t break any guitar strings”. He noticed that I was away for a long time and said “did you run away and get married or something?”
He told me that he plays guitar, keyboard, and he sings. He knows hundreds of songs and he wants to play in the subway but doesn’t have the guts. He lives in Staten Island, and wants to try playing by the ferry there on weekends in the summer, but he is afraid the police might give him a hard time.
I played for more than 4 hours streight today – that felt good!
