Hello, whoever-reads-this. It's Wednesday at about 1:36 in the afternoon. This is normally a morning activity, with the coffee, but I somehow fast-forwarded to other morning stuff. So, better late than never..
Music news. One new thing on YouTube, with, I'm sure, more to come. There's one individual who makes playalongs who is himself a killer guitarist, with the requisite stoopid facility on the instrument. SimonPeterKing, or something like that. As requested, I put the link on the playalong I uploaded to my page.
Seems like the bar for technique is set so ridiculously high for guitarists anymore. What I call Stoopid technique, which is that level(somehow)past Virtuoso. It isn't, and never really will be the end-all and be-all of guitar playing(save in some Guitaristic Dystopia..)but it often seems like you need extraterrestial technique just to get in the door.
To get stoopid technique, you have to put in stoopid hours. 4 to 8 every day. And you have to maintain it- whatever "level" your technique is at. Personally I've never put in more than 4 hours in a day, and 2ish is a good day. I feel like I'm improving- even though I may never reach the level I'd like to. Still, progress is progress.
Anyway, one new one on my page, with more to come. As ever, thanks for reading. Happy Hump Day to you! I'm outa here. More later.
