Finger Pickin' - (Sooooo) Good

I saw Richard Thompson play a few years ago and as he stood on stage with his fingers flying over that neck, I kept waiting for all the mandolin players to pop out. Nope. It was all Richard's ten digits and one simple acoustic guitar. This, I have to say, is even better. Here's how guitar gods pick in Botswana. Try not to smile with complete and utter joy when you watch.

Hollister, yes I was smiling all the way through! I loved to see when she looked up with joy on her face; wondering if it came from within or if she could see that someone watching her play was delighted!

Hey people! Long time no see!

I was in LA last weekend for my grandpa’s 90th birthday. All the grandchildren had to perform for him so I did a dance performance. Check it out!

Honestly, I’m not that happy with this performance. I was tired from dancing in my cousin’s performance before this, and I didn’t have much time to rest. I don’t think I did justice to the choreography. I just thought I’d share since I got a lot of comments saying I should dance to Wedding Dress.

On top of this, I danced to Jay Park – Abandoned with my little cousin. He was too shy to dance on his own so I offered to be in his performance with him. Watch it here!

Hope you guys enjoy it! :D
