I wanted to give you another music experiment update. I am following Leah McHenry’s “Savvy Musician Academy” but only to a point. I am basically following the suggestions that I feel are a good fit for me. She is a big advocate for FaceBook and admittedly I most times would rather put a lit cigarette out in my eye than post on Facebook but I do see how it can be a good tool. I am using it in moderation to ensure I maintain good mental health (lol.) In this segment I explain what I have done, what I’m doing now, what my focus is and where I want to go.
I am in this for the long haul and excited to see where my trek takes me. So go get some snacks and give a watch if you would like.
So I recently attended the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in Denver which is a huge trade show that showcases high end earphones. It’s the place where audiophiles roam freely and can be quite a sight (I mean that lovingly). If you are not familiar with “in ear” earphones, they actually have a sound port that you put memory foam tips on and insert them in your ears (I highly recommend Comply brand tips). What’s cool is that they really isolate well and you get to hear all of the nuances in the music which you won’t get with a cheap set of Apple “type” earbuds.
I was looking for a set specifically for “in studio” use so I don’t have to wear the heavy earphones while I perform and lay my tracks. I found a few good contenders and wanted to share my thoughts.
If you are a musician or someone who really appreciates good sound this vids for you!
See you next week!
So it was brought to my attention that I should give a few more updates regarding my music experiment with using the Savvy Musician Academy. This makes perfect sense and I apologize for being a bit of a dunce and not posting more information. I mean, the whole point of the blog was to follow my progress right?
So in this edition I will give an overview of what I have been doing, what my focus has been and some of my plans for the future. Truth be told I have been mainly focusing on creating a good product and not so much on the marketing yet. I have to have something people want before I start asking them to buy it, yes?
So if you want the “low down” sink into your comfy chair and have a watch!
Hope your week is a winner thus far!
So picking out an acoustic guitar can be daunting. So many to choose from and if you are like me, you want them all. Today I review one of my favorite acoustic guitar, the Taylor 814 CE in addition to giving a few tips on how to purchase one if you are a newbie.
So for “those of you who are ready to rock” please press play…oh, and “we salute you.”
Until next time!
Hope all is well in your world! So I was in the midst of writing the lyrics to the third song that will be included in my “themed EP” and came across this article as I was researching. It was called 21 things to never regret. I was intrigued and read it. Yep, I could see if I allowed for a lifetime of these missed opportunities I’d be pretty depressed while on my death bed…I mean you know, being on your death bed is depressing enough as it is, right? I decided to share my top 10 “regrets not to have” with you. Life goes by pretty fast so I think it’s good that we keep ourselves in check from time to time!
If you dare to engage in some self analysis, pull up a couch and watch!
I love when someone I know turns me on to a great work of art, whether music or other. Saves me so much time weeding through the mediocrity. My friends know what I like so when I get a referral I’m excited.
I will be forever grateful to my friend Matthew (who is also my audio engineer and drummer) for telling me about the singer Poe. I remember some years ago when I was in the studio he handed me a cd and said “you have got to listen to this.” I did and was amazed! Poe’s cd “Haunted” has to be one of the greatest works I have ever heard. It’s a bit dark, which of course I like, and the theme, music lyrics and delivery are superb (in my opinion anyways.)
For a few additional details push play! If you have any suggestions for me, send ’em my way.
Have an awesome week and I’ll see you next week!
