You have your new instrument so now what do you do? You mess around until you find the beginning of a song or a chorus and then try to work out the whole song. It is fun and meditative. It doesn’t always work out like you think (speaking as a person who was not formally trained in music).  For instance, one day I was trying to play “Brown Eyed Girl”, and I came up with, “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”.  I just went with it.  This is the fun of playing.

We added some songs to try out on your Strumpets here —–>SONGS.  If you have received an instrument, you have no doubt worked out some songs of your own and we would love to hear them.

There are still some instruments left and there is still time to ship before the holidays.

The first set of instruments are done!  Many have already shipped, but there are still a few left in time for gift giving.  Now the fun begins. The playing.  As I travel, Laura is working on the support page (how to’s)  and the new how to play page with songs.  We conceived of the strumfactory.com as being a sharing site. When you figure out a song send it in and we will share our discoveries.  This week, instruments will be arriving at doors all over the country.  Feel free to comment or ask questions.
