Back and forth with Bernie Williams August 20, 2011

Recently, a friend of mine gave me a copy of former New York Yankees center fielder, and past-and-present guitarist, Bernie Williams‘ new book–written with Dave Gluck and Bob Thompson–Rhythms of the Game: The Link Between Musical and Athletic Performance.

One day after receiving the book, I started to read it.  I’m currently up to chapter 7.  After seeing a post-#FF (Follow Friday) tweet from Bernie in my Twitter feed, I figured I’d tweet to him what I just wrote in this post:

I meant every word.  I’ve been taking piano lessons since October 2006.  I don’t have an actual piano to practice on, but I have the next best thing: a Yamaha YPG-625 Portable Grand keyboard.  The lessons and practice are challenging, but fun.  That’s especially true after I finally get the song I’m learning down.

I’ll update this post after I complete Rhythms of the Game.

9/30 UPDATE: I finished reading two days ago.  My considerable liking of the book carried through to the end.  It’s a great read.
