Lastly, I want to throw out a challenge for you. Record yourself playing a song and upload it to our Facebook page! All you need is a smart phone, prop it up, video, then upload your video to post on our page. Do you have a favorite song? Have you written a COVID parody? It will be our own little Open Mic! Let’s have some fun! Step outside of your comfort zone!

Let’s all keep in touch and stay tuned!
