Well, I’ve been keeping pretty busy this past week. As a result, I’ve had very little time per day with instruments in hand. I’m still trying to rescue myself out from under the mountain of stuff we all manage to somehow accumulate over the years, and spent most of the night going through a stack […]Read More
Well, here ya go guys – my first ever guitar song, in all it’s imperfectly played glory. Thank my weirdo muse for this one. Hurricanes We’ve been talking in torrents for hours I can’t hear you over all this rain. Summer storms just water all the flowers, but all I ever see are hurricanes. […]Read More Hurricanes (First run through)
…I just can’t shake the feeling that it sounds too much like…something. The rhythm or melody. I can’t put my finger on it, so maybe I’m imagining it. It kind of instills you with this fear of accidental plagiarism, though. You’re writing something, and you play it over and over again, so when it sounds […]Read More WIP Song…and maybe I’m just imagining things, but…
So, I mentioned about a week ago, when I was merging the blogs, that due to my phone being retarded and not knowing how to spell much of anything, and constantly autocorrecting real words into words that don’t actually exist, the renaming of the associated Facebook page was misspelled. I also mentioned that I contacted […]Read More Proof that Facebook is Crazy.
I picked up the guitar for the first time in quite a while last night. I’ve been focusing on bass since I got the Schecter, and continuing to work on the uke – though more on trying to remember things I’ve learned and less moving forward in uke-land. But, the past few days my time […]Read More Feeling Passive-Agressive. Time to switch it up.
Here’s a short ass post for you: Apparently, some of you who are not spammers are getting your comments sorted into spam. I don’t know why. Some of you who I talk to all the time and who are my regular cast of commenting characters are not getting auto-approved, so I am replying to your […]Read More Technical Glitch.
Okay, so let’s get back to talking music, shall we? It’s tax season, which means that I had it in mind to get myself a new toy – nothing outlandish. After all, I do have some practical considerations to attend to. I wanted to put some cash aside towards a new couch, for example, and […]Read More My New Toy: Schecter Stiletto Extreme 4
I’ve been hard at thought, guys. And, fair warning, I am going to post this exact same post at both blogs. It’s just better time management that way. There are two things that have been bugging me: I have a guitar blog on which I rarely talk about guitar. That’s been niggling at me since […]Read More Change isn’t Always a Bad Thing.
The art begins. This is something I originally drew back in 2007. The lines were done by hand, then put into a box and never looked at again until I finally went through my art box. I just got around to adding some color to it tonight. As much as I feel really uncomfortable being […]Read More Tribal Rose Graphic, and the tattoo that made me draw it.
Yes! 100% completion. I have been trapped at 99.6% for what feels like forever due to insignificant eff ups. Excuse me a moment while I do my bass happy dance (which resembles not dancing at all. Don’t judge.). Of course, I still have to actually memorize the song, but…hey, I can play it all. Memory […]Read More Take that, X-kid!
