Hello HIVE OPEN MIC 134, and welcome to my latest guitar solo!:)
First of all, a big thankyou to the wonderful @yetxuni for selecting this awesome topic of 'forgiveness'! She is an amazing musician and an incredible singer! I'm sure you all already know her, but go ahead and check out her videos!:)
Also, I just thought I would add that I am recovering from covid, so that is why I might look a little rough, and seem a little distant in the initial introduction! I'm much better now, and in a few days will be 100% :)
This weeks theme is a deep and meaningful one to me. Forgiveness is something that we have all experienced at some time during our lives, and it may be upon both ends - recieving or giving. Sometimes it is hard to forgive, sometimes there could be something unforgivable. Actually, I have had something in the past which was unforgivable (involving a past relationship) and there was no way I could forgive someone for this... however, it was eating me inside. The fact that I did not forgive meant that I could not let go of the dark situation. Eventually, I got to a stage where I could wish the person well, and detatch from everything. In some ways it was forgivness to myself and allowing me to move onwards in life, which I did :)
On the other side, we can be very grateful to be forgiven in times where we have made mistakes, and we all have! It is a great feeling and a learning process for both parties.
I chose to do a melodic solo for this week as I feel that I can let me emotions out, the first slower sections are struggling with overcoming a situation or experience, and the faster, louded sections are being set free and recovering from anything in the past that was holding you down!
I sure hope you all enjoy this solo of mine! I will be checking out everyone's videos now!
Peace and love!
PS - Now I have just thought I should have done Metallica - The Unforgiven for this week haha! Maybe another time :)
