My name is Elise M. Desser. I moved to Tennesse 2 yrs ago. I was born in Gary,Indiana and moved to Brooklyn, New York when my father who was a native New Yorker passed away. I lived and breathed the life in Manhatten places like the Blue Note( jazz) Sun Mountain Cafe ( contempary) Ritz and Lamoures which use to have five dollar fridays where you could see all kinds of bands play until wee hours of the morning.
I moved from there to north valley California where I developed a love for country and bluegrass. I guess music has always been a big part of my life my Mom had a collection of 78's Andrew Sisters, Benny Goodmen and the like Dad like WLS out of Chicago. Where the love of all kinds of strange music came from I dont know.
I cant play a lick I would love to be able to do so. I can truly admire those who have found with in them selves the ability to do what I can only admire from afar.

I assume when you say you can't play a lick, that means you have tried? I know I've met people who wanted to play, and never seemed to be able to acquire much facility at it, but I don't know if I've ever really met someone who couldn't play a lick... You must like music a lot if you're willing to join a fiddler group without at least thinking of giving it a try... Have you ever tried fiddle?

Read my blog archive for inspiration, especially the blog titled How to Become a Senior Prodigy.
Become stranger in your musical tastes: embrace old-time, traditional fiddling. It's a great way to be counter-cultural. It's more like being retro-cultural.

Something that holds true with every person who plays music is the fact that it began by "always wanting to."
