So how do I begin this.. Well basically I’ve moved home and I have my old job back at the coop.. And after two days working there I know I shouldn’t be here. However after everything that has happened it’s nice to get away from all the shit that’s has been going on back down in southampton. Its strange to have these two lives, completely different personalities cone about me. I like to think I’m the same but I’m not. I’m more charismatic, outgoing and ready to take on life’s challenges when I’m in southampton and home, I’m rather to myself, still outgoing but it’s not the same. It doesn’t help that both bands are in full swing currently and have got some great shows and development in going forwards. I truly miss these guys and wish I could be there at practice, get togethers etc.. It’s a big adjustment. And even though I do miss everyone so so much in southampton I find myself not really wanting to go back. I think I’ve done what I needed to do in southampton and now I need to move on (not from the bands) from the scene. Which leads me on to further education.
Currently debating doing a Masters. I know where I want to go but, it’s depends if I’m good enough to get through. Yes I can hold my own in improv, writing and stylistic playing. This is a whole new level of thinking and playing. It’s getting to the point where I have to really consider if I want to be the top 5% of players who make it a living. It’s not that I don’t want it, it’s the fact I’m not skilled enough to even get on the course yet. I know you are your own harshest critic but, it’s just the honest truth. If I am to do it 2016 is the year I’ll gun it for.
While back at home I’ve started writing again. In my own little way. While in this house I don’t play or physically write it down just develop it in my head. Many years of being shouted at for playing my electric guitar unplugged and being told ‘turn it down’. (*face palm* Honestly don’t know where I get my musical ability from some times) it’ll take a few months before anything is seen.. You never know might have a new acoustic by then (if the work hours keep up)
Leave this as a short post.. I’ll be updating more often
Last song done!! Good way to end #recording #bass #beard
