Travel Journal Log

Travel Journal: Banjo. After I crossed the initial excitement, the fear to shutter a dream and the more mature and complete falling in love, I have now arrived at a chord routine which takes me back to the scale practices on the piano from 3rd grade. Nowadays me and the scales are in good terms, but for a little child the scale practice, and especially the ones with a lot of sharps, equal in their beneficent influence on the para-sympathetic system only to forced labor in Siberia. In Soviet times, now all the world knows, the KGB of the music academies association used to send piano resistant kids to Siberia to do forced scale practice. The combination of the withering cold and the cruel multitude of sharps and flats affected some of these kids so badly that even today, many years after the fall of the regime, these broken and chromatic people still cannot shake the hand of a friend or caress the head of a beloved person without first running to the piano and warming up the fingers with a short set of scales.
