Another beauty on our hands. Blue skies and sunshine. In bed at 12:54, up around 8. Much tossing and turning, sleep achieved on the 3rd try. Feeling fine today. Even got in my 7 miles of Cardio.
A new date on the Gigs calendar. One new piece on YouTube. We're moving ahead. Been putting in some time on the guitar as far as practice. It never ends, even if you've been playing a million years. Always trying to get better.
I love the stuff Guthrie Govan plays, all the tapping and arpeggiating and sweeping. There was something posted on Bookface recently, a blistering solo full of this kinda stuff. Absolutely Jesus brilliant. At least to me.
And then I remind myself that if you want to play like that you have to put in an enormous amount of work. Practice like you've never practiced before. Everything costs something in this life.
So I'll continue to shed as I do. Maybe never reach the pyrotechnical heights of a Guthrie Govan or the dude on the video, but I'll still keep getting better.
And that's my news on this beautiful Saturday afternoon. As ever, thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. More later.
