thinking about singing
Not long ago, Shannon Heaton, who makes her living playing and singing music, wrote a post in which she considered looking at music structurally, analytically, in preparation for performance, and then getting into the fearless moment of peforming, and came up with a memorable image about that, too.
I've found myself thinking about singing in the same way but from a different place . I was at a pair of good singing sessions recently and really wanted to offer a song, but didn't, stayed with singing harmonies. That was fine, but I really wanted to join the conversation by sharing a song or two. Not sure where that will lead, but as that sort of welcoming situation usually occurs for me when I'm in Ireland and Scotland, maybe I have a bit of time to sort that out. Or not.
