Pick me up and play..


How many of you could do that! The notice hanging next to the guitar inviting anyone with musical talent and inclination to pick it up and play. Being totally devoid of musical talent that would not be moi :) but I was a little sad that, even though the coffee was excellent, no one took up the offer while we were in the Broody Hen Coffee Shop last week. The last time you saw the Broody Hen was HERE.  Heading into the city today, it's been a while. Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe.. 


  1. Even if I knew how to play it I would probably be too shy to do it!

  2. sure beat "don't touch!"

  3. I'm pretty much hopeless with any musical instrument.

  4. I may remember a few cords and a bit of strumming. Doubt I'd try it in public.

  5. People wouldn't want to hear me play, it's been a very long time. :)

  6. That is a great offer in the Broody Hen. Gotta love that name too.

  7. Not me. I’m a lost cause with a musical instrument or with singing. But enjoy listening. It’s a good idea to encourage the musically talented.

  8. Dearest Grace,
    That indeed would be great if someone could serenade other coffee shop visitors!

  9. It's a great idea and must be fun when a decent player picks it up.

  10. I know place that have piano and people will play, but not other instruments

  11. Hopefully someone picks it up and has a play.

  12. My Big Niece learns the guitar, said my Brother.
    Oh, Grace, I once tried, when studying, together with a flatmate. We went to a professional store and they were stupid. Because I´m an adult they sold me a guitar for adults. A youth-one would be the right thing to buy, I could hardly reach some strings and gave up. Instead of returning that darn thing and getting a proper one!

  13. Another one of those things that I never got around to, though lots of people I know are convinced that I can play guitar. I soon prove them wrong.

  14. And then to think that I had 7 years classical guitar lessons and could play some pieces of an Andres Segovia record out of my head but after I became 25 I never returned to it but the guitar still sit somewhere in a cupboard.

  15. I expected you took the guitar and gave a performance!

  16. Tuve la oportunidad, de aprender a toca un instrumento. Se trataba del violín, mi padre quiso enseñarme a todarlo pero yo solo lo cogí un vez pero me resultaba bastante incómodo.

    La guitarra y el piano, eran los de mi preferencia, pero al final no me puse a aprender ninguno de los dos.

    Espero que tengas un buen día.

  17. Too bad no one took up the offer. It wouldn't have been me either.

  18. My first husband in Rhodesia used to play in a band in his spare time and he taught me to play the guitar. I have not picked one up in about 40 years now and I am sure I would not have a clue anymore!! Keep well and stay safe, Diane

  19. Very cool, my kind of place, thanks for bringing us in! Such a great idea to open up folks too!

  20. In a lovely cafe like that I would likely pick up a pen and paper but not a musical instrument.

  21. I would do what you did,take a photo of the guitar.

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
