Another Peaceful Monday
Good morning! It's about 8:30 on this rainy Monday. In bed at 11:15, up at some ungodly hour just before sunup which I figured to be about 6(I always turn the clock around at bedtime).. Dozing for another hour or so, and here we are. Maybe not bright-eyed or bushy-tailed, but at least sufficiently fueled..
Music news. Some pretty good practicing yesterday, which yielded a couple selections. Sometimes I like to take the same tune at different tempos, and this is what I did yesterday. The Sonny Rollins tune Doxy was played at 4 different speeds. All four worked, but the first and fourth were best.
So I'll be posting to YouTube today. Not only the successful versions of Doxy, but some other stuff out of the "archives". I've got wayyy too much backlog, which I'm always trying to clean up. The things marked 'keeper' are the ones I'm keeping. I sometimes wish I were a more orderly individual. But then I wouldn't be me..*
Cup # 2. Coffee, that is. My coffee pot makes about three cups and change. That's enough to get me going on the slowest mornings, let alone an average one like today.
As far as band jobs, I have two forthcoming, just no specific dates.. There's a Robbie's gig ,cancelled due to water damage, which will be re-scheduled; and I was told we'd get another booking at Anchors Away. As soon as I have actual dates, I'll be sure to let you know of course.
Not much else to report right now. This is a week you could shoot a cannon through. Not always my most productive times- those tend to happen when I've got maybe two days to work with- but still a nice break from whatever. So- thanks as ever for reading. Happy Monday to you(still feels weird saying 'happy' and 'Monday' in the same sentence..)! I'm outa here. More later.
