Small drops make the ocean...

The year-end celebration at work saw my debut on the guitar. I sang Richard Marx's "Right here waiting" , dedicated largely to the spouse's of all the employees who for most part actually do that!

Althought it wasn't a landslide glory situation, this is where i begin, this is where i shed the inhibitions and insecurities of being terrible with the guitar. Like all other lessons in life, its all about confidence and one carries the facade so long as the confidence is there to shroud the insecurities.

The special moment was when Ram, proposed to sing Roberta Flack's "Killing me softly" and proposed i accompany him on the Guitar, a tremendous confidence booster. Was awesome sharing the stage with him. That proved beyond doubt the confidence of at least one man to partake in what i saw as a tremendously shaky proposition. To many more such moments where-in i hope to return and talk only of the glories without clouding them with the largely prevailing doubts :). In toast to all the Ram's of this world...

It's always have been a teenage fantasy to hold a guitar and sing for an audience but I am just not a music guy. But I did derive vicarious pleasure after reading your post. :-)

Cheers
