    Bach is, for me, the touchstone that keeps my playing honest. Keeping the intonation pure in double stops, bringing out the various voices where the phrasing requires it, crossing the strings so that there are not inadvertent accents, presenting the structure in such a way that it's clear to the listener without being pedantic – one can't fake things in Bach, and if one gets all of them to work, the music sings in the most wonderful way.

    I dedicate this song to all of us at this time. The conversation needs to restart. Only this time we all need to listen. Nothing is just one way or as it seems. What good is it if protest injustice but let those with other agendas destroy our country?

    If I could be you and you could be me for just one hour
    If we could finda way to get inside each others mind
    If you could see you through my eyes instead of your ego
    I believe you'd be surprised to see that you'd been blind
    Walk a mile in why shoes, walk a mile in my shoes
    Yeah, before you abuse, criticize and accuse, walk a mile in my shoes

    Well, your whole world around you is just a reflection
    And the law of common says you're gonna reap just what you sow

    [spoken:] Yes, you will

    So unless you've lived a life of total perfection
    Mm-mm, you'd better be careful of evey stone that you should throw

    [spoken] Yeah, yeah

    Yet we spend the day throwin' stones at one another
    'Cause I don't think or wear my hair the same way you do
    Well, I may be common people but I'm your brother
    And when you strike out and try to hurt me it's a-hurtin' you

    [spoken] Lord, have mercy

    Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes
    Yeah, before you abuse, criticize and accuse, walk a mile in my shoes

    There are people on reservations and out in the ghettos
    And brother, there, but for the grace of God, go you and I

    [spoken] Yeah, yeah

    If I only had the wings of little angels don'tcha you know I'd fly
    To the top of the mountain andthen I'd cry?

    [spoken] Yeah

    Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes
    Oh, before you abuse, crticize and accuse, walk a mile in my shoes

    [spoken] Yeah

    Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes
    Hey, before you abuse, criticize and accuse, walk a mile in my shoes.

    ~ Choice of Color ~


    If you had a choice of colors ,
    Which one would you choose my brothers.
    If there was no day or night ,
    Which would you prefer to be right.
    How long have you hated your white teacher...
    Who told you to love your black preacher.
    Do you respect your brother's woman friend,


    And share with black folks not of kin .
    People must prove to each other ,
    A better day is coming ... for you and for me.
    With just a little more education - and love for our nation ,
    Would make a better society.
    Now some of us would rather cuss and make a fuss,
    Than to bring about a little trust.
    But we shall overcome our beliefs someday. If you'll only listen to what I have to say.


    ~ Curtis Mayfield

    Sorry
    Height 6′ 2″, Weight 195? LOL! Try 295!

    Nice choice because in ballads, the subject always dies in the end.
