April 15th, 2017 It has been quite a week. It seemed to take forever to finish the song "Mother". I now call it "Mother What an Example You Are" because when I looked on youtube...after I uploaded the song...there were tons of songs about Mother and I am a few pages in because if this. I thought a slight change in Title might help. Here is the video. You can click on this Title: "Mother What an Example You Are".
March 6, 2017. It has been a busy day. That "do list" can really get to me, but having it before me, I certainly can get things done. I put too many things on it. But I really don't do all that is on the list in a whole day...I choose one and get to it.
I had a call from my son Ethan today. It was nice to talk about how life is going for each of us. I told him about my feeling inadequate in my singing abilities when lined up with other musicians. I have an airplay account. I felt it the best way to advertise. It is here if yo want to see it on(Jango Radio) this page. He was an encouragement to me. He said not every song has to be all jazzed up. Some songs can be simple guitar. He said that the words are important too. He told me to keep at it. I do pray that God will use those songs in people's lives. I like to go to my account and see who's been listening. The listener's tab shows who has listened, how long ago and where in the world they listened. I've been working on my geography. Do you know where Namibia is? It's a country in Southwest Africa. Pretty cool. The introvert in me wants to still hide them in a drawer, but God says we to share about Him. I pray it will be used for God's glory.
I've written enough today. It's time to go down to my little studio in my basement and work on recording some songs.
Maybe someday soon I will show you my little place to create.
September 10, 2016...I've been practicing "Trust in You" by Lauren Daigle. I bought her song and downloaded to my phone. I tuned my guitar to match her singing. What a great way to practice!

All my songs are going on You Tube. You can watch the videos here: https://www.youtube.com/user/MaryBeth9907
As you watch the videos I hope you can see improvement. When you try new software, it takes time to learn all the possibilities. Don't be afraid to try. Nate says you can always click on the cancel button.
Question: If you do music/videos/words on them, what software do you use? I use movie maker. I'm sure something will come along that will be free that will be a step up for me, but in the meantime, I'll keep figuring out the icons and their functions.
