Another gloomy-ass day out there. In bed at 12:15, up at 7ish(cats wanting food), dozed until about 9. KInda blah this morning, but well-rested.
A new offering on YouTube. Weirdo jam. Getting back in the habit of recording stuff every day, and then finding what's salvageable(if anything). Trying to practice more as well. Mainly scales and arpeggios. working on good solid left-hand technique: arching the fingers. keeping a good hand position, 'connecting' the notes. Also, of course, good left hand technique: a good angle to the pick so it catches all the notes, not leaning too much on the strings.
All the things a guitarist thinks about- or should, in the course of a practice session. And then to just forget all that shit and play! That's the idea, anyway..
My whole life is now geared for earlier hours. I start winding down around 10, am in bed at 11 or 12 and up at 7 or 8- no later than 9. So I end up with more Assisted Living Ctr gigs, which are almost always just an hour in the afternoon; and happy-hour gigs which run no later than 7 or 8.
At least there's still some work earlier in the day, and evening. I don't want to hit it all that hard these days, but I still want to keep my hand in there. So you do what you can..
Way too much jabbering from me this morning. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Happy Thursday! More later.
