Men's Honor Farm Guitar Class
February 18th, 2016
Our Music Therapy program currently meets every other Saturday, under the healing and humorous guidance of Julia Mansfield. Lately, they have been working on Power Chords and practicing various progressions that Julia creates to test their fingers, ears and sense of the collective as they pace to play together and follow her lead.
There are a lot of smiles, jokes and moments of pride and awe as they make music together. When someone gets the Power Chord “claw” right, when two of the men get together to jam and realize they are more alike than they previously thought, or when one of our more experienced players shares one of his musical creations with the group, we all get a bit of happy and bit of hope. And then their wrists get tired and they are just done!
