I've been a very bad boy and not been practicing guitar lately. I played a while this evening, and my fingers are so sore. Combining this and the first paragraph, I feel doomed. But I was actually pretty successful at trying to actually play Girl That's Never Been and sing it for myself rather than along with the record. Thanks, chirosinger, for showing me the chords. I still want to stalk you for the weird inversions you play, but it does work with first position chords. And just three of them. Who'da thunk it?
On another musical note, I'll be attending alymid's song circle on Aug. 3. This means (a) I need someplace to sleep Friday night, and (b) I'm available for some fun activity Saturday. There was discussion on the GT list as to there being several really good ethnic restaurants around Clark&Belmont, and I was looking at the map and thinking that it's only a little way down Clark to the Lincoln Park Zoo. Zoos sometimes bother me, but they do draw me also. If lunch (recommendations were offered for Ethiopian, Thai, and Indian) and an afternoon at the zoo sounds like fun, sound off. I'm not likely to brave the crowds all by myself.
