Musica maestro!

This morning I woke up feeling like doing nothing.
In a few hours Thomas will be back from his WWW Thailand trip and I figured I could use this time to play the guitar and practice some new songs. You've got to know that when he's around I'm not allowed to play much. In our division of "family roles" HE is the guitarist and I am the singer. No interferences of roles are permitted.
Honestly speaking, there is no doubt that he's way better than me at the guitar, but I miss being able to learn new songs and play them for hours on my own. Back home, many years ago now, I used to annoy my family playing the piano and singing (loudly) almost every day! 
This is our family jewel and this on the side is the room where I spent most of my high school afternoons, instead of doing my homework, as I was supposed to.

I had a song in mind these days: "Runaway Train" by Asylum. A few weeks ago Jake and Ramon came over for a few drinks and Jake ended up playing that song that I haven't heard in ages... I loved it! Here is my attempt:

 Sorry for the ending C chord. It's very hesitant, but I didn't want to start over for that one last note!!! 

After singing Runaway Train, I kept playing changing my repertoire completely.
Last song for today (and probably for a long  time...) : "You and I" by Ingrid Michaelson. Simple and lovely. Happy lyrics, this is my favorite phrase "...maybe I wanna do what bunnies do, with you, if you know what I mean". LOL! Do you know what I mean?

Now that I've annoyed you enough with my songs, I'm done for today! You all have a great weekend and I go get ready to pick Thomas up at the airport!!!
