30-Day Song Challenge: Day 26

Day 26: A Song That You Can Play on an Instrument – Ozzy’s Crazy Train

Hmmm…I have no story behind this except to admit that I can also play Richard Marx’s Right Here Waiting, Motley Crue’s Home Sweet Home,  and Heart’s Alone on the piano.  Or at least the first few notes.  But first, Richard Marx’s HAIR…let’s get everyone reacquainted here.

(Incredibly ridiculous 80s man-hair, though, quite honestly, mine was bigger.  But I’m a chick.)

My brother taught me Crazy Train on bass guitar when I was about twelve years old.  He also taught me how to read tablature.  I spent many a night as a teenager sliding my poor fingers back and forth on a guitar, enough to develop hardened blisters on each one.  Unfortunately, my patience is low and I could never get past the first page of sheet music. 

It’s a good thing Crazy Train isn’t too complicated.

About Dena

I'm a suburban Clevelander by way of Oklahoma City, by way of North Florida, by way of Southern Maryland, by way of Upper Michigan, by way of Northern Italy, by way of Lower Michigan, by way of Texas. Because of living in so many places, I have something in common with almost everyone I meet. I love reading, writing, and American history (especially reading or writing about American history). I'm interested in culture of place, historical trauma, and writing about the kinds of histories most people don't know about.
