A month after my last post I had an MRI & xray that revealed a need for major surgery & chemotherapy (bummer!). I’m still recovering from both, and this health episode has made retirement in 2017 a much higher priority. Having a lot of ‘disabled’ time to do more music was definitely also a factor.
During my convalescence I’ve put some time into all of the things I mentioned in the last post, and I’ve recently decided to focus on learning & arranging new tunes, as well as playing acoustic baritone guitar (the target of the arranging). The transposing part of the baritone has come more easily than I expected, but the scale length is still a challenge.
