Prudence MacLeod's Writings

I'm not just a wanna be farmer, I'm also a writer. I write romance, sci-fi, and action/adventure. Sometimes I even blend the three just for fun.

The romance novels are listed on the left of the page. The other books are listed on the right of the page. Please enjoy. You can also check the other pages of this blog for more.

I also play a lot of World of Warcraft; if you're a player you may spot where that hobby creeps into my writing. :)

Things I love Guitar

Hi folks, it is time for another installment of the Things I Love project. This time I want to tell you about my long standing love for the guitar.
When I was young I got the measles and had to stay in bed for days. One day my sister dropped her guitar on my bed. "If you can learn to play a song by Friday you get to keep the guitar."  Oh yeah, it was mine from there. That was over fifty years ago and about twenty years ago I passed it on to my son. I learned to play by ear, and thought I was pretty good at one time. recently I learned what a real guitarist could do.
Oh sure, I heard the greats and been completely impressed, but the other day I accidentally  discovered a video of an Australian fellow named Tommy Emmanuel.
I was captivated and watch spellbound. When it was over I asked myself, "Just what the hell did I just see here?" So today I will show you two of his videos. The first is a more conventional piece, Guitar Boogie, a favorite of mine. The second is a piece he wrote himself. If you are pressed for time, just watch the second one.


Folks, I hope you enjoy this man's artistry as much as I do, for he has no equal. enjoy.

So, tell me what you thought. I'd love to hear from you.
