I noticed another interesting thread turned to the subject of music, so I thought it might be fun to
revisit this one...

I've been invited to join a group of people at a local club for a "blues jam" (how appropriate), since
somebody who was organizing this got wind of the fact I "play guitar". I will say right now that I have
almost no innate talent for music, expect to get my musical butt kicked by others who are participating,
and I really don't care. It has been about eight years since I performed or did anything musical with
anyone, my guitar has mostly collected dust in the mean time, my voice skills deteriorated. I have
forgotten how much pure joy playing or singing in a chior or any of that brought me, and I am just plain
happy I'm going to be doing something, _anything_ musical. For even a ten-thumber such as myself, the
effect of music, both the making and the listening, was always to illicit a state of happiness. I wish
I hadn't abandoned it. I wonder if "music therapy" works for people.

I am reminded of a song from one of my favorite bands growing up (being a moody teenager), the Smiths...

"Shyness is nice and
Shyness can stop you
From doing all the things
In life you'd like to

Coyness is nice and
Coyness can stop you
From saying all the things
In life you'd like to

So if there's something you'd like to try
If there's something you'd like to try
Ask me, I won't say no, how could I?"

> Well, since the "Books" thread got such an interesting response, I figured why not music next? What do you listen to that is uplifting, cathartic, inspiring, etc.?
