010 – For Real

“The more real you get,

The more unreal

everything else is”

– John Lennon

My guitar teacher gave me a copy of this Real Book when I was at University in Boulder Colorado.  It took me a long time to Xerox each page, one by one, and I loved it.  Copies of this book are actually pretty rare and I felt privileged to get one.

About 600 pages, one by one … for real.

I put my guitar and this book away for many years.  As I have recently restarted my practice and this book has come back into my life with it, so too, this fine music stand from the same era has found it’s way back into my apartment today.  It’s a Real music stand and I feel privileged to have one.
