I still have to get the facebook page corrected, but I expect that’s not going to be cleared up until next weekend. I might make some minor aesthetic changes, as I’m trying out a new theme, since the last one didn’t quite grow on me. But, twitter, youtube, and google+ have all been updated to […]Read More As Finished with the merge as I can be.
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.
This was another sort of unplanned bit of crazy. I was supposed to go to an event tomorrow in which I needed some sort of heartbreaky or lovesick thing to perform. Well, the event has been postponed due mostly to a case of the ‘fuck it’s cold!’s, but the song has been written anyway, so […]Read More New Song: It’s a Good Thing I’m a Gamer (Because you Make me Want to Kick someone in the head)
Well guys, I’ve been in the uke zone today. I was going to work on the bass. I’ve been neglecting it far too long, but what can I say, when you’re in a zone, you’re in a zone. I did decide to snag a used copy of rocksmith 2014 for the PS3 on a deal off […]Read More Hard at Play
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
So, it’s no secret now that in my uke collection I have 3 converted righties. There’s really no helping it, since the pickings in left handed ukuleles are so slim as to be virtually nonexistent. My acoustic-electric Ibanez is a pretty special snowflake, really. (Though! A discovery for any lefties who want to pick up […]Read More Another weird Lefty-ism: Fretboard Markers
Well, rather than memorizing things, or practicing new things, my muse pestered me into writing another new uke song. And, I discovered another cool thing! -> ukulelehelper.com. See? I can click on the strings and frets, and it will tell me what chord it is. Which means, I can tell you that the “made up” […]Read More New Song: Stone’s Throw
I get that I haven’t been talking much about lessons lately, but I don’t want you guys to think I’ve forsaken them entirely! Actually, I haven’t been working with the programs much due to a variety of reasons. I’ll try to give the list some brevity: The gym cuts an extra hour out of my […]Read More Overall progress update, and further testing on Yousician, because that has apparently become my mission, whether I like it or not.
I’m going to talk about Yousician again, not because I want to, but because that’s how most people are coming across my blog, so I feel I owe it to you to give you any updated information I come across through the almost constant stream of conversations on the subject (which, btw, is slightly nuts […]Read More Alright, back to Yousician again…
My muse is weird. I picked up my uke this evening with the intention of either working on actually memorizing, or re-memorizing something. I think 365 has officially reached it’s life expectancy for the year, and I really need to flesh out my repertoire if I’m going to continue doing ukuele at open mics (I […]Read More Jack & Davy (aka, so apparently I wrote a sailing song?)
