I sucked this week. I didn’t drive forward. I did the minimal amount for my band. I haven’t even started writing the next song.
I still haven’t been able to organize the other musicians to rehearse for the recording session.
I looked for musicians, but couldn’t find any. Hell, I didn’t even listen my voicemail for this guitarist that cancelled meeting up to talk about the band. I ended up sitting at the bar by myself for a couple of hours.
I pretty much let work and life get in the way of getting shit done.
But that’s okay. I’m not going to beat myself up over it. I’m going to let it slide and be productive starting NOW. (Well, after I post this blog, that is.)
The week wasn’t an entire waste, though. I’ve been talking to people on the local metal forums and making new friends. I’m finding out what shows people are going to, and also letting them know to come say hi to me if they see me.
Also, I’ve been rehearsing bass every night. I’m trying to get my finger-picking up to 170 BPM playing 16th notes. I’ve just been bumping it one to three BPMs a night.
And I just bought a cool, inspirational book: The War of Art. I have a feeling I will be inspired to pop out tunes.
I can’t be the only one who just has an off week.
