Slice of Life: Open Air Easter Song

(This is for the Slice of Life challenge for March, hosted by Two Writing Teachers. We are writing each day about the small moments in the larger perspective … or is that the larger perspective in the smaller moments? You write, too.)

sol16After our Easter Sunday Church Service, in which I was asked to play a Greek hand drum on the anthem (even though I was upfront with the fact that I do not play the drums nor can I read drum music … we have a very inclusive and forgiving church .. I just kept to the beat, with a few extra rhythmic whacks now and then), I was home, playing around on my guitar with some open tuning.

Easter drum

As I played my guitar, I had this lingering sense of the flowers and a quiet thoughtfulness on my mind, and while the song here is not really an Easter song, not one of forgivingness or of unexpected possibilities or of belief, it is inspired by Easter morning. Funny how the Muse comes to us at odd angles.

Peace (in the music of life),

  1. It is funny how the Muse comes to us. I loved “Open Strings Easter Morning.” I especially was drawn to what was happening at 0.33 and 1.00. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Your music is inspiring and uplifting to me. I enjoyed listening to the rhythm and change of different chords. Thanks for sharing your musical talents with us!

  3. Kevin,
    Your many talents always amaze me. Even though you’ve used a still photo, your music makes your image come to life. It gives it depth and feeling. I really enjoyed the final notes and closing of your piece.
