I think my playing might actually be improving a bit with all this sudden time to practice, ;)

That's great & sounding good, I'm exact opposite & now questioning my self. I thought I'd be practicing a lot but I haven't touched a harp or any instrument since the isolation started. I'm blaming it on not being able to play with the band seems with out the band I have absolutely no motivation to play. I go in my music room look at my gear move some stuff around & walk out. I know when this crap ends I'm & I'm sure my band mates aren't gonna be thrilled my playing. Oh well maybe your video will get me some inspiration thanks for posting it.

Thanks for listening, Lou. I know your frustration.There are any number of things I like doing as a hobby, things I've gotten good at over a long time of stubborn attention to them, like playing harmonica, writing essays and poetry, photography, but lately there is a shroud over all things that bring me personal happiness and fulfillment, a combination of depression and anxiety that I cannot stop to wonder what the point of any that would be; at the end of the harmonica solo, the last paragraph of finely honed prose, the last stanza of lyric poem, the finishing touch on a well composed photograph, I remain alone and the depression and other bedevilments start making their sounds again. So I remain active, distracted if you will, and certainly, since I'm a sober alcoholic with a lot of years without a drink or a drug, participating in online AA meetings via Zoom. It helps. And so does playing harmonica , a godsend in my life among many other gifts and blessings.
