Saturday in all its glory
Still with the nice weather. Another beauty out there.
Got a call today from someone in Jacksonville looking to hire a guitarist for a gig around Labor Day. Like most calls, I get, I said sure. Supposed to meet with the singer between now and then.
So I have one gig every month. A little light as far as a schedule, but that's okay. I've got other stuff on my plate as well- like having to exercise regularly- so light is good.
One new thing on YouTube. A bluesy tune entitled Cold Duck. Fun to play over, hopefully fun to listen to. Much of my practice time is spent with Mr Metronome. Not as much fun as the playalongs, but certainly a necessary part of practicing. I leave the playalongs as a treat, for after doing der schcales und arpeggios and various technical exercises.
Actually I make up a lot of my exercises. They usually involve crossing strings, designed to improve both hands. I put one such exercise up on YouTube. It gets a few views, hopefully guitarists out there will give it a try. I've got more..
That's my news for today. Feeling very relaxed on this day, so it'll probably be a fairly lazy one. Thanks for tuning in, whoever-reads-this. More later.
