    About :

    I was hesitant to participate this week since I don't have a voice; well, I do, but it's harsh, strained, and raspy. I have a terrible cough and am covid positive, but I am starting to feel better, though I am still at home isolated.

    But I don't wanna miss this weeks' theme "Doing the Work," which was chosen by @lk666.and so I opted to play my guitar, voiceless. 😅😊

    College days, I recalled how badly I wanted to learn to play the guita - but didn't know how - so I asked a friend to show me ways to read chord charts and pluck the strings. What's Up by 4 Non Blondes was one of the songs I kept playing once I worked it out because, aside from being a timeless classic with basic chords and strum, I like the beat and the lyrics. Despite being in difficult social and mental circumstances at times, it is imperative to embrace life and all it has to offer. That is the message, at least for me. In addition, this song helped me not only learn to play the guitar, but also to enjoy and appreciate music.

    To be clear, I'm still no expert at playing the guitar.
    It's disappointing, but owing to studies, work and liabilities, I didn't have enough focus and consistent practice. But because I adore music, I still play the guitar on occasion and it would be awesome if I can learn to pluck and fingerstyle!

    Song Title: Whats Up
    By: 4 Non Blondes
    Lyrics Source: https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/4nonblondes/whatsup.html

    25 years and my life is still
    Tryin' to get up that great big hill of hope
    For a destination

    I realized quickly when I knew I should
    That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man
    For whatever that means

    And so I cry sometimes when I'm lying in bed
    Just to get it all out what's in my head
    And I, I am feeling a little peculiar

    And so I wake in the morning and I step outside
    And I take a deep breath and I get real high
    And I scream from the top of my lungs
    "What's going on?"

    And I say, hey-ey-ey
    Hey-ey-ey
    I said "Hey, a-what's going on?"
    And I say, hey-ey-ey
    Hey-ey-ey
    I said "Hey, a-what's going on?"

    Ooh, ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh, uh huh
    Ooh, ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh, uh huh

    And I try
    Oh my God, do I try
    I try all the time
    In this institution

    And I pray
    Oh my God, do I pray
    I pray every single day
    For revolution

    And so I cry sometimes when I'm lying in bed
    Just to get it all out, what's in my head
    And I, I am feeling a little peculiar

    And so I wake in the morning and I step outside
    And I take a deep breath and I get real high
    And I scream from the top of my lungs
    "What's going on?"

    And I say, hey-ey-ey
    Hey-ey-ey
    I said "Hey, what's going on?"
    And I say, hey-ey-ey
    Hey-ey-ey
    I said "Hey, a-what's going on?"
    And I say, hey-ey-ey
    (Wake in the morning and step outside)
    Hey-ey-ey
    (Take a deep breath and I get real high)
    (And I scream)
    I said "Hey, a-what's going on?"
    And I say, hey-ey-ey
    (Wake in the morning and step outside)
    Hey-ey, yeah yeah yeah
    (Take a deep breath and I get real high)
    (And I scream)
    I said "Hey, a-what's going on?"

    Ooh, ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh, uh huh

    25 years and my life is still
    Tryin' to get up that great big hill of hope
    For a destination, mmm

    See you next week music hivers. I hope I get back my voice by then. 🙏
    Thank you @hiveopenmic and keep safe wherever you are!

    😊😍
