New Music Release By Lynda Carson

Oakland - November 29, 2020

The gift of music is a wonderful experience. I have been blessed with the ability to play some music on a guitar. This is my own music...

This is a recording of myself (Lynda Carson) playing an acoustic cutaway guitar that I built in the guitar workshop of Ervin Somogyi https://esomogyi.com/ a number of years ago. The music is straight out of my head, since I no longer recall how to read notes or read music.

My handmade guitar has a sitka spruce top, with Indian rosewood for the back and sides, a Honduras mahogany neck, with an ebony fretboard & mother-of-pearl inlay.

The recording was done earlier today on my old 17 year old Mac, using a built in mic, with a Quick Time audio recording program. I just learned how to use this program earlier today, when I was searching for a way to record one of my songs. I was surprised when I discovered that this program exists on my computer, and recorded one of my songs.

It's not the best of recordings. It is not a studio quality recording. But it gives the listener an idea of the music I like to play when I am sitting alone in my apartment, during the coronavirus covid-19 pandemic. Someday, I would like to record some music in a studio again...

This is the first time that I have released any of my music to the public for 38 years.

For what it is worth, I got my first guitar around 47 years ago. It was a cheap electric guitar that I traded 3 eight tracks for at the time.

All these years later, I am still learning how to play the guitar. Lucky me...

Special thanks to Master Luthier Ervin Somogyi https://esomogyi.com/ for allowing me to build my guitar in his guitar workshop many years ago... Thank you Ervin!

Thank you for allowing me to share some of my music with you for the holidays. I hope you enjoy it...

Sincerely,

-Lynda Carson

That's me holding a guitar that I built in the guitar workshop of Ervin Somogyi. The photo was taken in front of Subway Guitars in June of 2019.

Correction: Recorded on 13 year old iMac computer

This was recorded on a 13 year old iMac computer, not a 17 year old computer.

Sorry about that...
