Anyone else doing more music?



  • I'm getting in an hour's guitar every morning when I would be commuting, and generally play for an hour in the evening. The people at guitartricks.com are my only real friends now.

    I'm still a pretty crap guitarist, but I can almost imagine being able to imagine being half-decent. Sadly, my Donald-Trump size hands preclude me from really playing what I want. I've been monkeying around a bit with Hendrix-type chord inversions - light bulb moment - oh, that's what he did that made him sound so different from everybody else!

    I also splurged on Helix Native - software amp modelling. A whole lot of fun with headphones, so nobody else can hear how crap I am - it's an introvert's wet dream.



  • Playing more piano, but not like I should. I should be polishing that bench a couple hours a day.



  • I’m playing a lot.

    Mostly on the digital, but usually I’ll get 30m or so on the Bosie after dinner.

    It’s a bit frustrating because my digital has a very annoying issue, in the main register there’s an octave or so with nearly impossible to control dynamics. I’m almost certain it’s the contact pad (whatever it’s called) and it’s replaceable under warranty.

    But I don’t want a tech here any time soon.

    But I’m still playing a lot.



  • Yes. i'm revisiting some old pieces on piano and I even sat down on the drum kit this week. That was a blast and I intend to make it a daily practice routine. Rudiments, different styles, etc. Drums were my main instrument back in the day.

    And guitar is still going at least 2 or 3 hours a day.
