Greetings to everyone; my dear online audience and beloved online Judges.

My name is still Kalu Samuel (ksam), it hasn't changed for now. When it changes I'll duly inform everyone about the update.

Welcome to Music Community on Hive and to our amazing event, Hive Music Festival (HMF). I hope you are aware that this is Hive Music Festival round 2, Week 2? If you aren't, now you are.

Last week, I presented a guitar cover of Perfect by Ed Sheeran. I had it in mind that in my next presentation I would sing instead of just playing guitar, and shame those people who think I am not a great singer. Yes!

And guess what?

For this week, I didn't sing again what did you expect? That I should sing so that @obaro will keep reminding me how terrible my voice sounds


For this week, I still focused on the theme of love, and I stayed with my number 1 Love/Romantic artist, Ed Sheeran.


I consider Thinking Out Loud as a Masterpiece from Ed Sheeran to Lovers. Eeeem, by Lovers I mean those in serious relationship (couples), not the secondary school boyfren-and-girlfren relationship.

This lovely piece reminds lovers to renew that love they share; to always remember the begining or birth of this love, how it grew and was nurtured till this moment. It also projects a futuristic scenario and ask that they remain true to themselves and renew that love they've once shared.

Thus, I dedicate this piece to all the married couples in this community and all around Hive. Relationship isn't all rosy; at some point you'd think of calling it a quit, and at a point you'd wonder why you began the process. Surely, you'll experience misunderstanding and a little bit of argument or quarreling please don't make it abusive!. However, these bad experiences should not define or overshadow the good romantic experiences, except if it becomes toxic and life threatening.

Keep on renewing that beautiful love you share; at 70, you can still "fool" around with your love as though you were Teenagers, still ignorant about "love."

Ed Sheeran is one of my favorite singers 🀩. Listening to this cover from the hand of your guitar has been wonderful. You play the instrument with a lot of passion, overflowing with that fury that characterizes the singer. Thinking Out Loud is one of my favorite songs as well as Perfect. Excellent work! I could feel the song fully.

I wish you a lot of success!

Thank you so much for your lovely comment.

Ed Sheeran is indeed a Superstar among superstars. His music is so spectacular.

Beautiful instrumental, super synchronized with the accompaniment. You have a great command of the guitar, an instrument I hope to take up again soon. This melody also transmitted a relaxing vibe. Excellent work. Greetings from Peru!

Wow my friend... What a beautiful harmony. The sound, the story behind this composition, your performance, the perfect timing of your guitar, that distortion that ended up adding the missing ingredient. Everything was great my friend. Again, welcome to the Hive Music Festival.

Waka why na?
You are a great all rounder musician and you know it manβ€οΈβ˜€οΈ

You definitely play better than me. Maybe I shouldn't say that I don't like most of the original songs (I don't listen to much pop music) but I enjoy your covers, ;-)

You definitely play better than me

I consider myself as a learner πŸ˜… I still have a lot to learn. Thank you for the compliment

I don't listen to much pop music

I think I can blend in with many musical genres, although I hardly listen to music. I only listen to music when I want to make a cover or present somewhere.

but I enjoy your covers

This is a big ups for me πŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈ
