Wednesday much the same
And it's yet another beautiful sunny day. I didn't get around to posting yesterday, but suffice it to say it was also another beautiful sunny day. I'd have just been repeating myself, which is something I'll probably to more of anyway with advancing age and all. You didn't miss anything..
The criticism of my performance of But Not for Me, as it turned out, was just a friend busting balls. This same friend has been very supportive of my efforts and has also bailed me out of a couple situations when we were much younger. So he's entitled to bust my balls on occasion.
You can hear But Not for Me, and many other standards, on my YouTube page. Something like this is ideal for the musician who's not gigging a whole lot but still wants to communicate his playing to the folks out there.
One of the reasons for my reduced schedule is that one of my groups dissolved. It was an R & B trio, and quite often the source of most of my gigs. That took away a lot of the action.
Another reason is that I'm tired of the noise and crowds- at least for the time being. So I'm not pursuing anything. Actually I was kinda ready for another busy couple of months, as the Spring and Summer are. But the main group, as I said, fell apart. So I'm just enjoying the down time.
But I still have something every month, so I'm keeping my hand in there. A tenuous connection, but a connection nonetheless.
That's my stuff for today. Having exercised Sunday and yesterday, I figure that gives me a day off from physical fitness, and more time for the guitar. With that, I'm sure of some more fingerboard shenanigans- and as always, whatever works usually goes up on YouTube.
Thanks for tuning in, whoever-reads-this. More later.
