Sabor a Mi

May 10th, 2020

Well, this song came about after a sort of inspiration.  While visiting the accordion forum, someone posted a lovely piece that was not very technically challenging, but totally beautiful.  I thought to myself that I needed to follow this path for my next piece and so the challenge was to:

  • Find a “nice new to me” song
  • Learn it
  • Memorize it
  • Create a video
  • Upload it 

… all within a few hours of ONE day.  And so I found “Sabor a Mi”, wrote it out, took 2 hours to practice it… and then had to take 6 tries before I could get it on camera.  I was hoping for one take, but tech issues, CF card issues and “me” issues brought that up to 6.  I could have done a much better job if I went to 7… or 25 tries, but 6 it was.

And so, mistakes and all, I give you my rendition of “Sabor a Mi”… a lovely song.  Music doesn’t always need to be a display of technical mastery to be beautiful, and that was my lesson of the day.
