Another wander-listening in YouTube: "odd elegy" ... I liked the title, it made me wonder about the fact that with time much of the elegies can be felt as "odd" but they are still elegies, yeah! And that one is beautiful!!!!! :wink:

Enjoy!: ... 2NT3O1dlGY

Mi amiga,

I went to high school from 1964 through 1968. I was in many bands and most sucked.

However, in my senior year, I was in the best band in which I ever played. The guitar player in that band had some of the fastest fingers I’ve ever seen on a guitar player.

The reason I bring this up is that your choice here is ironic, if only for me.

Yesterday, that guitar player, one of my closest friends ever, and his wife were killed in a car accident. If it's OK with you, I’ll use this elegy in honor of Bill Tyler. :(

So, serendipitously or not, thank you.
