Wow, Olaf. I'm in shock. You played and sang so well! I had no idea! Man....just goes to show you - you never know about people.
Your guitar pickin' was great. I so much want to learn to play guitar better. My brother taught a few things long ago. Currently, I can only play Stairway to Heaven, a Pink Floyd song - can't think of the title, but it starts out with a single quitar that sounds like it's playing on a radio and then it becomes more stero - some lyrics, "so, so you wish you could tell, heaven from hell...." whatever.
Also about 20 seconds worth of a Spanich piece, and that's about all. I have an accoustic guitar just sitting by one of my fireplaces, just waiting for me to pick it up. I usually do when there's a party going on, until someone mercifully takes it away and plunks me down on the piano instead. Anyway, you sounded terrific. And your German accent was not very noticeable. Yeah, I heard it, but it is sort of endearing. Reminds me of my mother when she starts singing "The Yellow Rose of Texas" in German. Cracks me up everytime.
Nicole - I think that's a neat idea about everyone sending me their voice samples and then we (not me) all guess. If anyone here is willing to participate, say so on this post and we'll get it started.
Oh, and I saw the space station before I had finished my first bottle of ice cold beer.
Perfect on hot summer nights.
