A Path of Faded Green
Only a few days into my musical expedition, and the Hummingbird has already become my steadfast companion. With each passing moment, I can sense progress brewing and something remarkable transpiring — a profound connection between myself and Dad's treasured instrument. It's as if the strings whisper secrets only my soul can comprehend. The sheer act of feeling sound is an experience beyond words, an enchanting phenomenon that compels me to hug and play the guitar incessantly.
Then, a discovery; curled up within the Hummingbird's protective case, a forgotten gem awaits — my father's own pocket chord guide! Although I am thoroughly intimidated by its intricate maze of complexity, a profound desire to forge music propels me to unlock its mysteries. I leaf through its pages and discover my dad's handwritten notes, etched in a faded shade of green.
In his pursuit of mastery, he diligently erased misguided chord names and meticulously incorporated corrected answers; evidence of his own musical journey fraught with challenges. With each strum and every lesson I glean from the guitar, I traverse the same path he once walked, learning to wield music theory through the very pages he adorned with knowledge. In this synchronicity, I find solace and inspiration, as if his spirit stands alongside mine, orchestrating a symphony that defies time itself. He is not just my father; he is my teacher, imparting wisdom through the conduit of six strings.
Together, Dad and I embark on an extraordinary adventure, united through music, his cherished guitar, and his handwritten notes. In these melodic moments, I feel an undeniable connection to the wellspring of Source Energy, an ethereal force that binds us all.
This is the dawning of an era— one where melody intertwines with legacy, and where a mutual love of music echoes in the awe-inspiring symphony of life.
