I almost want to go to the trouble to learn to play the guitar just so that I can play Piano Man on it.
I know this will offend more than one reader who plays their acoustic guitar at parties, but I really do feel that doing so kills the party, or at least puts it on hold until they stop playing. Then again, my primary means of trying to be interesting at parties is by talking, and the guitar makes it hard to do that, so maybe it’s just that the guitarist and I are working at crossed purposes. If only there was a way to combine talking and guitar . . .
I wonder if there’s guitar tablature for One Night in Bangkok, or any of William Shatner’s spoken word pieces. What could be more entertaining at a party than a live acoustic recreation of Shatner’s rendition of Rocket Man?
