Five Tips to Improve your Music

 

Hey!

I know as artists we tend to keep striving for perfection in our art. Nobody knows what perfection really is, since it’s definition is different for everyone. However, I think we have a bit of a “bar” in mind of where we need to be. So I wanted to share with you five things that I am doing that I feel are having a positive impact on the quality of my music. They are not hard, they are not expensive but I can surely hear the change. I have to admit that with a couple of these, do to their simplicity, I was in disbelief of their effectiveness. I guess when it comes down to it all those little nuances really can pack a big punch collectively.

So if you have interest in learning more about these practices please sidle up to your computer and press the triangular button!

Have a great week!

Cheers,

Laurie

Music Experiment Update 3

 

Hey all!

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.

Cheers,

Laurie

Earphones VS Headphones

 

Hey!

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!

Cheers,

Laurie

Music Experiment Update #2

 

Hey there!

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!

Cheers,

Laurie

10 Regrets Not To Have

 

Hey,

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!

Cheers,

Laurie
