Raise high the roof beam, carpenters

Like Ares comes the bridegroom, taller far than a tall man”

I wouldn’t lie to any of you. Yes this song’s lyrics is about woman’s boobs.

But hell, the guitar work in this performance is strikingly beautiful yet simple.

I got married last 5 March 2016 and the wedding ceremony on the bride’s side was the next day, yet the wedding ceremony on my family’s side will be this coming Sunday.

And shit, I felt tired finishing off the paperwork for my day-off for the wedding event.

Yet what I am doing now, is to pick up my guitar and practice this The Smiths great riff until I get it right.

While looking at my sleeping wife.

 The Smiths - Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others - Bassline

All the shit that happens throughout the times seems a passing memory with this great riff from the Smiths.

My feelings with this marriage and life right now , might be the same as the story Raise High The Roof Beam, Carpenters, by JD Salinger.

Like Ares comes the bridegroom, taller far than a tall man”

Playing guitar while sipping hot drinks at night. It feel so lovely.
