Just a Note on Music
He played the guitar (when I was 4, with a speech impediment, I called the guitar a zumzum). He played Jimmy Crack Corn. Thinking now of the lyrics I wonder if Vaughn would choose to teach me something else?
In deference to Nancy, I will say Vaughn ‘played’ the piano, he wrote, maybe memorized is more accurate, a half dozen very catchy tunes. From time to time a melody of his will creep from my subconscious and I will hum the tune for a spell.
He took a classical music appreciation class, which was something perhaps not really in his wheelhouse, but I know he enjoyed it. After this class, we would listen to some classical music and he was able to distinguish many distinct instruments. This was my introduction to classical music, a genre I still listen to today.
