Music Shame

Posted on Monday, October 3, 2011 in Uncategorized

I am rhythmically challenged.

I am rhythm deprived, I know it, if you know me well, and you know it too.

Many of you have made fun of me to my face; probably as payback for some mischief I perpetuated.

What’s it look like to be rhythm deprived?

While everyone else rocks to the music, I’m hunting for the beat.
While everyone else is caught up in the groove, I’m wondering which way to move.

When I clap, I follow.
When I tap, I wonder; “How soon will I lose the beat?”
When I dance, I count and watch others.

I’ve tried to defeat the monster that is rhythm deprivation.

I love the sound of a blues harmonica solo, so I’ve owned and “played” more than a dozen harmonicas.
I love the sound of a guitar solo, so I’ve owned and “played” five guitars.
I love the sound of a drum solo, so I’ve owned and “played” a drum set.

I’m sure that if they could each one of them would be in abuse-therapy. = {

I hate music shame.
