GBGC Top 40 Countdown: T-16, Hold Me Now

Well, I've reached the half-way point of my goal: posting a GBGC video every day until my birthday. It hasn't been easy. It's very time-consuming, especially during a full-fledged opera production. But I have to confess that playing my little guitar has been very enjoyable and even therapeutic at times. Not only have I proven to myself that I can stick to a goal, but I've been able to express my joy, my sorrow, my frustration, my fears, my successes, my thoughts .... hey, wait a minute. I think I've just figured out why I chose music as my career. You see? Grahamophone's Bad Guitar Channel, or the making thereof, is actually very useful.

There. I've validated one area of my life, now let's move on to another. Yesterday I had encounters of one sort or the other with four different men. Okay, one of them was a fictitious character, but still.... It was a headwrecker kind of day. I don't know how to continue this story without getting too personal, but let's just say, I discovered that the best friend I have right now is this little red guitar. 

There has been a song written for everyone and everything in every situation. Put another dime in the jukebox, baby!


  1. Congrats on the halfway mark. Impressive sticking power! And one of my favourite songs.

    And all those men, huh? No wonder you've not got around to answering my e-mail...

  2. like the grainy quality to the video on this one!

  3. Nice one Christine!
