Periscope - the App ! oh the Fun !

About a month back I started using the newly acquired App by Twitter - Periscope.  I only watched a few broadcasts before I decided to jump in.

As always I just have to have fun with what I do, I don't fret blemishes and imperfection - just try to connect with others that want to have fun and are engaging with music.  So far, this has been an amazing learning experience for me and much enjoyment for me and the now regular followers I am assembling on my follow list from different parts of the world.

Very much like my other musical pursuits, I may start with a theme, or take requests - often trying songs for the first time just going with the flow.  Sometimes its not bad, or even pretty descent, or a train wreck may be in the making with a good laugh on both ends - for the true jolly makers among us.  For the rest its, thank you for coming move along, move along LOL.

I love trying songs that I have never thought of doing on guitar before, but on Periscope I may even start with an instrument I am working on - a cigarbox guitar and harmonica have become a real treat to do together - with a slide.

Sometimes I'll play along on the drums to a 60's R&B song or sing and play the Beatles on Piano - Periscope has opened up a lot of energy to push forward with music everyday.  Once again I am setting up to do what I know is my best talent, deserving the most focus, songwriting. 

It's been a treat to have moments of conversation along with others with Chris Hadfield, Andy Dick, several news anchors and reporters and actors on Periscope - between my broadcast moments.  It's all new and so much is open and accessible.  I seem to have some regular "Fans" in the UK and Europe with what I am doing, too fun!  I will have to get together with them and whoever else scopes in tonight!

Swipe to the right! Tap for hearts !

Fun Times :)
