ex machina

the eric update - day 222: making and taking notes.

odin's musical education began early when it was clear that he enjoyed kicking out the jams in the nicu and now he gets to listen to even more tunes with his ipod mini when he's not incorrectly practicing the diatonic scale.

so i guess that it's no surprise that i've noticed that he really seems to like studiously studying my movements while playing The Greatest Acoustic Guitar Of All Time.

is it just me or does he look as if he's getting ready to practice his strum with his right hand?

perhaps in the not too distant future i'll recruit him for session work for the snowdeal show ® podcast.

for the musically inclined, the guitar is tuned to a modified open g tuning, CGDGBD.

My niece and nephew, have always enjoyed watching me play guitar. We bought them lots of hand percussion (drums and shakers and so on) for their last birthdays. And somehow my sister didn't mind.

sigh. how i miss that amp. i wondered if you still have it and have dreams of someday buying it back when we're older codgers than we are already. i'm sorry you ruined your wedding by playing guitar :-)

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
