Magic Fingers

Accidental Poet


An eleven-year-old boy Saxon Weiss

 Mastering the playing of guitar

He plays at a far advanced level

So young a rising star


I pick up my own virgin guitar

Determined to do it justice

I’ll start taking lessons

To search its robustness


To challenge myself

Because of a boy of eleven

Not that I’ll be as good as him

But good enough for sixty-seven


A lifetime Bucket List wish

To be a guitar player

No longer procrastinate

By saying I’ll do it later


I watch the video of Saxon Weiss

Playing like a pro

Encouraging me all the more

Confidence building as I go


Use your magic fingers Saxon

Play your heart out

Be true to yourself

Part of what life’s all about

    • Accidental Poet

      I could play the guitar now Andy, but it might resemble a lot like Orchi's singing. 😁

      You got that guitar? Or even a ram's horn as an olde instrument. Takes a lot of puff! I tried playing one but the ram wanted it back. lol.

      • Accidental Poet

        I got the guitar last summer Orchi, and I got my RAM truck last fall. But I don't have a Ram's horn, not sure I have the puff for that one. 🙄 I dare you to take the Ram's horn back from him. 😁

        I'm naughty in calling a musician 'Mad M.....' But he will break that keyboard one day, hammering at it!

        • Accidental Poet

          Orchi you used 5 dots ..... I'm gonna tell Neville. 😁

          • orchidee

            Argh!! lol.

              A remarkable young man, the prodigies always amaze us. Love the music, and love your guitar, you're already a star!

              • Accidental Poet

                Yes Bell, I've watched a number of his videos, for such a young age, he's really doing quite well and plays with other older well-established musicians. I'll predict he'll be a huge star in years to come. I'm no more a star than anyone else here at MPS. But thank you for the compliment. 😉👍I do appreciate it.

                I have just had one of those incredible deja vu moments .. I distinctly remember listening to the young fella but I truly thought I had also previously left my comment here as well .. Cant remember exactly but something about it never being too late to learn ...Must an age thing .. Neville

                • Accidental Poet

                  Speaking personally, yeah it's an age thing N, but for you, I did have a previous entry about Saxon Weiss playing the guitar, so that's where you probably left that message. And thank you for your confidence in me. 😉👍

                  • Neville

                    Phew .. thought I was going doolally for a micro moment or two .. 😎😁👍

                    I've read this before not so long ago maybe last week. And my reflection is never stop trying new things I believe that playing music comes from within it's a true gift also passed on from genetics I can always tell a true guitar player. Or we have it or we don't. The music industry being one of the harshest walls to break. Learning for fun is an incredible achievement. 🌹

                      Neville said the same thing Teddy. February 3rd I posted "As Easy as Breathing" which I speak of Saxon Weiss and his playing guitar so well at such a young age. Yes, I'm that impressed with him that I included him in two of my poems. And my learning guitar is just for fun. I've no expectations or even interest in pursuing any professional ventures playing guitar. Thanks for reading and your valued comments Teddy. 😁👍
