This is one of those questions with no cut and dried answers. It is a skill that you acquire over time. In this episode of The Daily Frail we talk about developing your melody-discovering skills.

The Daily Frail 4/24/2018

Everybody in the house is asleep so I am playing softly to answer this question from Dan:

“How do you guys keep your fretting hand so relaxed while making and changing chords? Any tips on this topic would be very welcome.”

Gardening

I placed my order with seedsavers.org this morning!

When the seed packets arrive, I can get to work creating a container garden on a slab of concrete in our back yard. I will be using inexpensive plastic tubs from Dollar General to plant flowers, vegetables and herbs. I will even be planting milkweed, fennel and parsley to attract butterflies. Joy!

I don’t get out of Crisfield too often nowadays, so the garden will be a nice way to escape the office and watch the bees as I work the soil.

If any of you have any leftover seeds to share I would love to add them into the garden. It would be a way to add faraway places into the back yard.
