As a writer, I am all about words. For me, words have power, connecting us to others, as well as to our own selves. However, I am married to a guitarist, who thinks entirely different. You could say we make pretty good music together, though. We make a great team.
This year for the A-Z Challenge, I posted a song based on lyrical merit. I shared my song list with Bill, asking for his suggestions. We both like the same music, artists, and songs, though there are variations in thoughts. He had entirely different ideas for most letters.
Finally, I challenged him. I told him that if he came up with his own A-Z list of songs, I would post his list after I completed the A-Z Blog Challenge. He could choose any songs that he felt should be shared.
Many of you know Bill through my blogging. We have been married thirty-six years (on June 6). He is a wonderful, hard-working guy, who loves his family and home. But, there is more to Bill. He is also a very talented, creative guitar player. He can play any genre of music, including rock, blues, country, jazz, and even polkas. He understands music theory and can read music, as well as play by ear. Obviously, Bill sees and feels music differently than I do.
Bill has met my A-Z Song Challenge. I will post one song from his list every day, from A-Z. Bill would like to hear your thoughts. Please comment; he will be happy to answer questions, too. So, I present to you…Bill and his "Kaleidoscope of Sound"! Take it away, Bill!
