I did it! Last shabbat my months of studying came to an end and I chanted torah with the best of them. It was a lot of work and I’m almost recovered from it. I wore a digital recorder and have made a file available to listen to.
Now, I know that opens up a can of worms about shabbat observance and that really isn’t my intention. At this point in my life, I don’t keep shomer shabbas. If you are uncomfortable with this, then don’t listen to it. If you are okay with it, then by all means do. Here it is.
