Another Peaceful Monday
And it's Monday again. Back to work for most folks. As far as my week goes, you could shoot a cannon through it. But I like it that way, at least for the time being.
Three gigs in December: the 8th, 21st and 31st. Yes, I'm doing Amateur's Night, but a nice early one-hour affair. Not much for New Year's Eve stuff anymore. Unless there's a party staggering distance from my house, I usually just call it a year.
All my music jobs these days are 2 hours, sometimes just an hour but never more than 2. And they're all relatively sedate environments. This helps keep me in the game. I'm older and crabbier now, and thus less likely to take a lot of jobs in the first place, but for two hours in a quiet place, I usually don't mind.
In the meantime, between now and these dates in December, just more of the same from me. More practicing. and I've also been working on my own music in the form of some recordings I came across here in the cloistered and cluttered confines of my music room. So eventually there will be a couple recordings for sale on my page at CD Baby.
I had a couple of good guitar sessions yesterday, and the survivors of the recorded tunes will find their way onto YouTube in the next couple of days, starting today. And as for today, I get my new Epiphone ES-335 back from the shop. It's the cherry-red guitar I play on some of my YouTube videos, and live gigs. It will most likely be featured in whatever I do today.
So that's my thrilling life, or at least the musical portion of it. Thanks as ever for reading. Happy -eh, Monday to you. I'm outa here. More later.
