So yesterday was a marathon music day for me. I posted up a couple minor repairs to QRD & then I met my son for lunch to discuss some stuff about our duet record. Then I went to Ted Johnson’s & we did some guitar jams for about three hours. Then I went to the three hour practice for this big electric guitar ensemble thing I guess I’m playing in. (Which to be honest, I maybe shouldn’t be playing in, all of the electric guitar ensemble things I’ve heard or seen have been more of a gimmick than something that really utilized the instruments. Which I suppose is because most guitarists have a rock background with limited listening skills & so the guitar ensembles end up being on par with a middle school orchestra instead of something as groundbreaking & amazing as people want it to be. That said I don’t think this performance will be any worse than anything else even if it does make me slightly sad that it’s nothing you couldn’t accomplish with say 8 people instead of 30.) It’s been a long time since I had my guitar in my hands that long in a single day & I suppose I should get back in the habit of playing it that much.
Today I put some more varnish on the boxes for the comics, edited a couple more interviews for QRD, & read a Lovecraft story & wrote about it for Nostalgia Equals Distortion.
