Playing For Change

playing for change

These days when I hear the word “change”, as in something we all need or a politician’s promise, one hand holds on to my wallet, and the other goes for my gun. Not really to the second one, because my gun usually isn’t that accessible. But today, that word is part of something hugely wonderful. I opened the YouTube app on my computer, and there was a video from Playing For Change of one of my all time favorite songs, Take Me Home, Country Roads.

I listened, fell in love with the music, the concept, and joined immediately. Only $5/month or $50/year. What is it? Some kind of worldwide musicians cooperative I think, but listen to this video and make up your own mind.

Where else can you watch and hear consummate talent from around the world? Where else can you hear a sitar solo from India, dobro solo from Italy, balalaika solo from Lebanon and guitar solo from Tokyo following each other in a single song?

When I began this blog, I was a 70 year old man, with a young mind and a body trying to recover from a stroke, and my purpose for this whole blog thing is to provoke thinking, to ridicule reflex reaction, and provide a legacy to my children.
