And it's another hit. Well, 38 degrees but still nice and sunny. Had some dreams- not crazy but eventful. I can't remember the storyline(if one even existed)but I do remember being "someplace" and remember the feelings of being there.
Today will probably involve some cardio. I do 30 minutes on an exercise bike and then another 30 on the treadmill. They want me to exercise 'most every day', but every other has been working out well. I also do resistance exercises with dumbbells and a kettlebell here at the house.
Still hittin' it every day on the guitar. Been trying to record some new things but except for the modal thing, haven't done anything YouTube-worthy. There is a solo version of Scrapple from the Apple(Charlie Parker), but it has a few clams in it. Might post it with a note reading something like 'yes, critics out there. I did fluff a few notes'.
After over 50 years of playing, I'm still trying to get better. Still working on my time and phrasing and execution.
One thing I've found to be useful as far as time is to keep a count in your head, like a mantra, no matter what you're playing. As I'm able to maintain this, it seems to take care of any time problems. Things land where they're supposed to. Just so long as you keep the count in your head.
Anyway. Time for that second cup o'Joe. Some rambling, and some musical advice. Hope it's helpful. And I hope to have more new guitar stuff to share on YouTube or wherever.
Thanks for reading, whoever-you-are. Happy Sunday!
