Have decided that I won't post the blog links cause i dont think anyone is really going to them due to having to sign in. Id post them here if the status would fit 3500 characters. We need a blog feature here.
hey family! how are you?
i just wanted to say that I'm sorry but i definitely won't be able to participate in the contest. i promised, i made a commitment to organize everything, record the spoken parts, I had in mind to do a backing track by myself and record everything myself, every instrument. it was cool. i feel guilty for not being able to participate but too much shit has happened to me in the last few days and i have had the opportunity to record no instruments and i won’t be able to. i had worked hard. i’m terribly sorry and i know it's not the end of the world, but it was something i cared about. but i’m sure there will be other contests and other opportunities as well.
Thanks to everyone who gave me tips and advices for learning all the fretboard notes, now I can track notes. Obviously not as fast as someone who has been doing it for months or years, but I can tell what I'm playing and recognize scales, chords, 7ths, minors, etc..
Took a bit of a break for the holidays. I was playing a lot leading up to the beginning of December with a cover group. I'm out! Doing my own thing for a while. Going to try to write 52 songs in 52 weeks. It will be terrible, at least in the beginning but I expect I will get better after 52 attempts at good song writing.
