Jim found a Hammond Organ M100 on Ebay. Just before Christmas we drove up to Lansing Michigan to pick it up.
Starting on February 1st, I'm determined to learn all the piano basics on Garageband. This is my Winter Project. Like Mike has his pinball machines and Eric has his podcast and website, I need something too to keep my hands busy and mind working. Previously I've taught myself to knit, needlepoint, roast the perfect chicken, use a sewing machine, and several various garden projects. None of these skills I can do really well, but I do know the basics. Except roast the perfect chicken.
Winter is when I have time to learn new things. It's cold outside. There's not many projects that I have with the garden at this time. I know January equals June in sowing seeds and getting stuff ready for the garden. This year I have the greenhouses and am going to start sowing stuff as soon as we get some more sun light. We're getting the same amount of sunlight now as we did in October, when everything was starting to go dormant. Every day gets a little bit brighter and the sun gets a little higher. It'll be warm before we know it.
Learning a musical instrument is not something I would have picked for myself. I'm not particularly musical. My camera man, Jim, plays guitar. I've always like listening to Organ Jazz and love machines with bulbs, bells, and tubes. So, Jim decided this project for me. I'm enjoying it so far.
