Hi all my Singsnapper Friends,
Update - July 18, 2015. Sorry I’ve been away from SS for such a long time.
I have been declared legally blind. My vision has deteriorated to the point I can no longer see to read or leave comments other than one or two words.
The scrolling lyrics on songs are impossible for me to read therefore I can only sing songs that I remember.
Otherwise I am fine and still hosting 2 countries jams each week in our living room.
Thanks to all who have been concerned and asking about me.
UPDATE JUNE 2014.- My Daughter Linda McRae's New CD '50 SHAES OF RED' is being released by BOREALIS RECORDING COMPANY on June 15th.
You can read more about it on her website lindamcrae.com
I have already heard it and it is PHENOMENAL ~ I hope everyone who buys it will love it as much as I do.
EXCITING NEW OCTOBER 18, 2013.
My daugher Linda McRae was just signed to Borealis Recording Label.
Way to go Linda. We are proud of you Linda. Love Mom & Ray.
I'm a Stay at Home Retired Lady who no longer drives because of Macular Degeneration.
Don't feel sorry for me though, I LOVE being at home with our two little dogs Maxx and Sam. They are very spoiled and have my hubby Ray & I wrapped around their little paws.
(Update.. our poor little Sam went to doggie heaven Feb 22, 2012. We miss him terribly).
My hubby bought me a guitar for Xmas 2010.
I immediately started trying to learn to play by ear as I can't see well enough to take lessons.
2 weeks later in January 2010, I was coming along quite nicely and was learning quite a few chords when I fell and broke my left wrist quite badly. It was over 6 months before I could even attempt to put my wrist around the neck.
I had forgotten all I had learned and so back to learning all over again with sore almost bleeding fingers at times.
I'm slowly learning lots of the chords again but still find my wrist gets pretty sore at times.
Please excuse all the typo's when I comment on your songs... my limited vision makes it difficult to catch errors and my typing has never been good..(smile) and so far I refuse to cut and paste. I hope you will understand that members who have pages that are glittered up, even though I may listen to your recordings, I won't be able to read the comments others leave for you, however I will leave a comment for you after I listen. All the glitter takes TOO long & almost impossible to read the comments because of my AMD.
I love music, particularly the old classic country and the big band stuff.
Thanks ... Happy Singing~
UPDATE: MAY 2012
I was getting bored playing and practising my guitar alone ~ so I put out the word that I wanted people to come to my house to jam with me.
The result was that I am holding 2 JAMS each week now which is a lot of fun but it has cut back the amount of time I have to spend on Singsnap.
Thanks to all who drop by my studio. I promise to return the favor and visit you very soon... Hugs..Marge
