I'm not complaining or anything, but I have a massive headache today. I just moved across the country from sea level to about 4800 feet. Being this much closer to the sun has brought out the vampire-hide-in-basement tendencies in me. All I want to do is crawl into a dark room. Instead I did yard work and played the fiddle. See that? Fighting off my unsocial tendencies? It's not easy.
The reel I learned today is a simple enough tune, but depending on who's playing it, it's groovy and swingy, or soaring-off-a-cliff fast. I usually like groovy, but today I went for the unreasonably fast version. I blame Frankie Gavin. He makes it look so fun!
