A beautiful sunny day out there. Just a bit nippy, but otherwise just right.
It's been a virtuous week for me. 3 workout sessions(2 Cardio and 1 resistance)and pretty much daily guitar practice. I should start documenting my music time as well as this other hoohah.
Yesterday yielded some guitar practice, and with it a couple new ones that could go up on YouTube. At least one will, I figure.
My playing keeps a lot better time than it used to. This was and is a fair amount of work, playing along with mean old uncompromising Mr Metronome. Learning to toe the line with this 'despotic' piece of machinery..
Of course the real test is out there on a gig, with a real drummer and bass player. Some drummers I work great alongside, and others I have a hell of a time aligning with. I think the goal here is to have the time so well internalized that the drummer and bassist almost don't matter. Well okay, better put, that you don't need them to carry you.
On the bandstand, all lives matter.
Today might just be a domestic day. A day of musicmaking. Yeah, that's the ticket.
Okay, we'll see if this day lives up to its promise. Thanks for wading through all this, whoever-reads-these. Happy Friday to you! More later.
