Back in the late 80’s, early 90’s, or thereabouts, while working as a patrol cop in the NYPD, there was much hype and anticipation to film director Spike Lee’s “MALCOLM X” movie. Many people were showing their reverence by donning the now iconic “X” baseball cap. My partner quizzically asked me when the caps became commonplace, “What is with all the Roman Numeral ten hats?”
I can’t read or play a note and am told by those who can, that maybe I should consider taking lessons. No way! I feel that at this point in my life I would rather just enjoy the sounds and be kept in wonderment at which string to pluck, or which key to strike, or which note to blow. To those like me this picture will just represent some random note configuration. To those who are gurus, and can read the music, you can see why it is titled Untitled #5.
Continuing my Untitled Series with an homage to the right hand of Jerry Garcia.
