Short Poems To Kill Time

Hi everyone. Here are some short poems to kill time that I came up with while taking a ferry ride. The creative juices started flowing after watching a Red Green episode where Harold and Red were singing a tune that made no sense whatsoever. It was great!

Anyways…

Being a song writing novice,
Can be rather overwhelming
When it comes to being stumped,
Just do it and quit whining….
**************
Red Green on guitar,
Harold on spoons,
Sing about life,
While sitting in the boons.
*********
So worried about not rhyming lyrics,
Just sit and sit while tossing proses,
Only to watch a Red Green show,
Prove it comes and goes in doses
***********
It don’t rhyme,
It don’t jive,
Makes me laugh,
And that’s no crime.

That’s all I have for now.

How To Provide Musical Inspiration

Hi everyone. Being a musician offers many perks. One of the most rewarding is experiencing the reactions of others. We all know that music is the tool. Read below to find ways on how to provide musical inspiration.

Keep your skills current. This goes without saying, but can be easily forgotten. The better your technical skills are, the more pleasant your sound. Practice as much as possible.

Play different music genres. Each genre offers something different. Everyone has their own likes and dislikes. Being able to alter your musical choices to suit others will reap its rewards.

Offer free entertainment to shut-ins. This is especially helpful when the person is a retired music teacher or symphony support. Your music will spark their life.

Learn composer and genre background information. Listeners love to learn about how a piece or composition came about. Find out the date composed. Learn about that era including dance, economics, and other pertinent facts.

Share information about the composition’s intricacies such as time signature, staccato, legato and style. You may be surprised about the interest level you receive. I know, I have. 🙂

You will be enlightening others and yourself.

Music is a fun learning tool. Being able to share it with others will provide musical inspiration. It might be the perfect tool to transport a person from hopelessness to hopefulness.

Good luck!
