And here we are with a new day. Made it into tomorrow, not that there was any real doubt. I have both my felines hovering around me this morning. One is on the table to my left, and the other is perched on the printer to my right.
Yesterday was a day of Sterling Virtue for me. Got a good vigorous Cardio workout, and some equally good guitar practice. I even taped a few things, and most of them worked, so I posted them on my YouTube page.
YouTube, I'm finding, is quite a vast place. You can easily get lost in its many 'neighborhoods'. I try to stick to music, but have found some interesting stuff about philosophy(from Aristotle to Bertrand Russell), literature, psychology, sports, travel & tourism- and on occasion, girls playing water polo. Hey, I'm a guy.
Anyway, I have two going on three new pieces for your listening enjoyment. They're all 3 minutes and change(I don't like to tax my listeners' attention span too much), with an organ trio. I actually made 3 distinct versions, with different stuff in each. Or so it seemed at the time.
One of my favorite denizens of YouTube is a bass player who calls himself Mr Sunnybass. He has a YouTube page with all kinds of tunes on it. Playing with just you and bass is tricky. You have to listen more for his notes, and really watch the time. More than a few times I've had to scrap a recording because I rushed a little bit and got out of sync. When I do manage to synchronize with his notes, it's great!
That's all I've got for now. Thanks for reading. Happy hump day to you. I'm outa here. More later.
