Playing with the "Calamity Janes" and now "Averill Lovely". Learning some new country/bluegrass chops. It's a fun new experience for me. I'm even playing some Dobro which is way cool. Glad to be getting back to my roots and I'm joyed to be playing electric guitar again. The G&L ASAT & Comanche and the Blackstar Stage 60 is kickin' it!
Patience is a slippery virtue which I struggle to maintain. Like so many things in my life, I "know" what to do, but actually doing it proves to be quite difficult. Why is it that I cannot seem to do for myself, the very things I propose someone else do in a similar situation? Alas, it is no wonder that nobody listens. Can patience be taught by the impatient?
Patience is the companion of wisdom. Saint Augustine Carthaginian author, saint, & church father (354 AD - 430 AD)
I have been banging on guitars and writing songs for a long long time now and a harsh reality is finally making its way through to my ever so thick skull. I am the only one who cares about my songs. Sure, some people seem to enjoy them, but I always assumed that someone would listen to my songs and then jump up and simply take me by the hand and lead me into the songwriters "promise land". Now I realize that is simply a pipe dream. It is up to me to make anything happen with my music. So I keep working to rewrite and make better songs, and keep writing new ones that might be good enough to make it all happen. Time will tell, but it does seem like my networking efforts of late are showing some promise.
