Making Music Together

A couple of weeks ago, Chris and I spent a few evenings together doing something we hadn’t done as a couple before: we made music together. We wrote and recorded a song that both of us are kinda proud of, but I’m not going to share it here because I sing on it and I am not what you would call a singer by any stretch of the imagination.

Chris, on the other hand, has a fantastic voice and his singing is actually the reason he and I met, but that is a story for another day. Anyway, our recording method is what most upstanding musicians would consider unconventional, to say the least. We didn’t use a microphone because Chris couldn’t find his (it has been years since he’s recorded anything). Luckily, we discovered that the built-in mic on my iMac worked just fine!

The funnest part was the instruments we got to use: An accordian, ukelele, acoustic guitar and a toy piano all made it into the song. It was really fun recording with my husband and I hope we do it again some day—I’ll probably just stick to playing guitar next time so that I’ll be brave enough to share the song here. ;)






  • Wayne Toshikazu - How fun! And such a great way to be “together”. If only I could sing! :)

  • my. - You guys are too cute! I love that you incorporated the toy piano! Nice photos!

  • Courtney - I want to hear the song!! :)

  • Mary - So awesome! I really want to hear it! especially since there might be accordian in it I am guessing from the picture? You guys need to jam with Scott…I am in no way musically blessed but he is and gets rather lonely jamming by himself.=)You guys are so cute!

  • JB - I think your voice is lovely.
