MUSIC! MUSIC! MUSIC!
By Nancy Whitaker
I cannot think of anyone who does not like music. We all like different kinds of music genres and for me music has always been a solace, an energizer, and a pick-me-upper.
I basically “cut my teeth” on gospel music and learned to play the piano from some old time gospel singers and musicians. They took time with me, taught me different chords and how to keep time.
I also learned how to play chords on the guitar and when I was about 15, I was introduced to what is now referred to as “old rock and roll.” While a lot of church people were calling it the devil’s music, I fell in love with Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fabian and Chubby Checker.
