Good morning! It's about 8:45 on Sunday, this side of noon. The first sunny day we've had all week- or at least the first day that started off sunny. My home state of Illinois has not only the largest number of incarcerated Governors(4), but it also has the most mercurial weather going.
Music news. First off, I'm in the process of building another website. Hostbaby, the company I had mine through, sold out to another company called Bandzoogle. The good news is that I administer pretty much all the pages myself, so I can add music and photos on my own(I used to have to rely on a webmaster for that stuff). Lotsa pix up already, and a few tunes. It's still samcrain.com, just a different location.
In other news, I've spent the past week recording new stuff. What I have to show for it is a Suite of nine pieces.They're short- maybe 2 or 3 minutes apiece-but fairly intense. And entertaining, easy to listen to(but NOT "easy listening"). My music may be weird at times, but it's never esoteric. It's meant- ideally- for everybody..
The guitar has taken a back seat these past couple days. Hope to get back on the stick today with practicing, and maybe have something to share with you on YouTube. As far as my home-recordings, I've got a couple things in need of guitar, so I'll be incorporating it into the mix. More to come.
A few bandjobs later this month,on the 20th and 21st. The 20th is at Pease's with the Samba Llamas; and the 21st is at Robbie's with the Dan Rivero Group. Hope to see you at one of these events!
My new site has a blog page, so I can continue to pontificate with my morning coffee and share these 'bon mots' with you the reader. So, more to come!
And that's about everything I can think of for now. Thanks as ever for stopping in and reading. Happy Sunday to you! Ich bin outa here. More later.
