Okay, so I’m still fighting off the upper respiratory disaster, but, I’m sitting in a chair at this point, not melting into a ten foot high pile of pillows, so I’m going to count that as progress, even if my nose mostly feels like it’s on fire, and I’m basically in the middle of a […]Read More Hadean Ukulele Bass
Well, I haven’t had a lot to post about recently, in part because I’ve spent a large chunk of my time just sitting around watching old ass anime that I never got around to. Have I totally ADD’d from practice? No, not at all, but it’s been light. I’ve been fighting a mild sinus infection […]Read More Composing, Practicing, and fighting off the office plague.
I spent a good part of the day noodling around on my guitar and my bass. In guitar land, I have a new tune, and I have something vaguely resembling lyrics, but these two things don’t seem to bear any relation to one another, so it seems I’ve got two entirely different creatures in […]Read More Meanwhile, in bass land…
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.
Observation: It’s really, REALLY hard to practice bass with a head cold and/or allergies. I’m not quite sure what it was that hit me abruptly at around 7 pm last night, but I know I took a benadryl and it did a whole fuck lot of nothing, but woke up totally fine this morning. So, […]Read More Observations
Okay, so, now that I have a minute I’ll get back to that bit of youtubing I mentioned doing 2(ish) posts ago when I ran out of time before work to talk about it. Now, since I have a new bass, you know that’s where I’ve been throwing a lot of my energy. You […]Read More More Bassics: thumb pivoting and my weird relationship with youtube lesson videos
I mentioned not too long ago that after finally getting a PS3 (now that the 4 is out, and the 3 is fairly cheap), I decided to get Rocksmith 2014 for the PS3. I’ve had it for the PC for a while, and I liked it, but ended up not using it as much as […]Read More Weird difference between Rocksmith for PC and Rocksmith for PS3
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
So, it’s 2pm on a Tuesday. I’m home, and sitting down to write a post on wordpress, and potentially, if I’m lucky, finally eat my breakfast. And, for those of you who don’t find the above at all unusual: I’m a 9-5er. Actually, with my travel time, I’m a 7:30-6er. I think we now can […]Read More Well, today has been an Adventure! Which is, admittedly, only vaguely related to music.
Well, guys, I’m sitting down to write a post at 2 in the morning; there’s no way this can possibly go wrong, I’m sure. Tonight we went off to celebrate a friend’s birthday. In addition to some rockin’ accessories, I decided to pass on my first uke as a gift as well. That’s the Diamond […]Read More The gift of Music
