MY FIRST MAKE MUSIC LAGOS MEET UP || THE FEELING AND DRIVE

avatar

I have quite been away from music for while and what I mean is; not making music or going to music programs. I have just not been doing anything asides when it comes to playing my guitar in Sunday services at church and it ends there. If you noticed that it is almost two months since I uploaded a guitar cover.

But today, I got invited to a music gathering not far from my house. I didn't have any plan for the day and saw it as an opportunity to have a different feel and even to get to meet other people. So I went for this program with my friend without taking my guitar of course.

As expected, I saw a lot of people gathered; people with talented voices and skills. I said in my mind, that this is the kind of place I would love to be in. The sound quality was awesome that every second I was imagining how my guitar would sound through their speakers.

Unfortunately, there was no lead guitarist; This was the most painful thing of all. Do you know why? Because if there were, I could have just walked up to him to ask if he could let me play for a few minutes to enjoy the music flow. So I stayed enjoying the music while still hungry to fill in the missing spaces that the lead (electric guitar) would have done.

The keyboardist and bassist were really good. I enjoyed them from the beginning to the end. It showed that they had spent enough time rehearsing and taking their music game up. For me, I am far away from that but being around these guys gave me a home feeling of wanting to be among and jam with them.

I think what I lacked was not having musical guys around me so my energy to rehearse boiled down plus I am too busy with different activities and playing my guitar doesn't enter the list of most pressing activities.

Talking about pictures, yeah I took some pictures with my fam. these are just the pictures I had to take with these guys for memory's sake.

The two guys behind me; one on black and the other on light blue, have been gees from way back. We haven't seen each other for years, I think before the corona started. It was great having the time to hang out with them and get to talk to each other. I missed them and was glad I got to enjoy myself musically, unite with old friends and also get to make new ones.

That's awesome, I'm so glad you agreed to go for the program. It's obvious you had fun, you kept taking pictures, it shows how well you've missed such gatherings.

It's so sad there wasn't a lead guitarist, it would have been fun to see you play, even if I wasn't there.

The lock down has kind of made some persons love there privacy and space more than it was, so I will say you are a lucky one getting to meet some of your friends on that program.

That your smile looks really good on your ☺️.

I perfectly understand this feeling 😃, wherever you were spotted you will keep feeling unfulfilled, you will even feel like your guitar should just appear from home so you can fill the vacuum, hahaha

But it's okay..you still had fun and good moments with those guys👍🥳😇
