November 8th, 2007

Hello everyone, hope your November is going well..mine ain't! I am still as of now recovering from the flu. I had to leave work early yesterday because I wasn't feeling too great and had a fever. Good thing I got it now and not during hunting season!

I didn't get a chance to do any voice sessions yet this month..because of my illness. But my voice is feeling pretty strong right now and I might try a few sessions tomorrow since I'm off work. Might as well, there really isn't much other to do around here lol.

I've also updated the forum style. Its not so plain now, although I still don't have a banner. I like the colors, I think it fits the website perfectly, and should be more inviting for visitors to post.

Well, that's all the updates for now, have a Happy Thanksgiving, and take care!

November Update!

Wow, its already November! Christmas is sneaking up fast, and things are starting to get alittle crazy everywhere. We are slowing down allot at work, so that's good for my music, but bad on the paycheck! Too bad you can't have them both, huh?

I have a small update, as I'm really trying to get this done before Christmas. I have all 12 songs completed music wise, and I am currently working on the vocals. Things aren't going too smoothly. I'm finding little things that irritate me in the music, but there isn't much I can do about that, as I am recording in a small budget home studio. A really small budget..lets say $200 total...haha. I'm cheap.

Well there you have it small update. There will be allot happening this month as I have four days off work to work on this know, between deer hunting and everything :).

Monday, October 15, 2007 Update!

There are a few updates I've added onto the site today. All the pages should no longer have "Under Construction" on them. I have updated the Biography page, the shop page with a picture of the cover for the new album. The site should look alittle different, I had some help on another forum cleaning up some of my code. Everything should look fairly good on all web browsers.

On the music side of life, I now have four songs recorded for the new cd, and have figured out there will be a total of 12 songs on this album! I recorded a few with the acoustic, and a few with the electric..lets see if you can tell the difference! I hoping to get some more time in the near future to record. I want to have the album avalible before the new year, I will update you as work progresses!

Update on Progress

I would like to update you all on my recording sessions and on how much I've got finished, and how much I've got to go yet. Also I will fill in on my life since my last post, which was in June.
I'm going to try to get a post on my blog atleast once a month now. Keep it kinda active. Now, for the recording side of life, I have four songs recorded for my debut album. One out of the four I need to redo the big deal. I'm still not sure how many songs will be on the album, as I keep on writing more lol. I'm thinking around 12-13 songs. I've got a price figured up already, but I will keep that a secret for now. It ain't much at all! Most of those recordings were done today while I had the house to myself. Its good to be alone once in awhile!
Now, for the rest of my life in the past few months..hmm lets see! I had a birthday on September 8th, I'm now 22. I bought myself a b-day gift, you can now check out! I thought I might need a website for my music and pics! I didn't do a whole lot really since June...I did go to an open mic last Tuesday just to watch. Might play there someday, dunno. I've also been busy hunting, working on my motorcycle, putting brakes on my truck, and working at my real job!
Well, I guess thats all for now, I gotta sign off and go to bed. Thanks for reading, and check out my website!

First Recording

Tonight I decided to pick up the old acoustic Taylor and have a go at a recording session. I think I did about five takes and finally have a decent recording. Its not perfect, but this ain't a perfect world, and I'm not a very good guitar player! I think I might use it for the album though. I have to have some singing sessions in the coming days and see if I can polish it up alittle bit. Then I will only have ten more songs to record! Man, this is alot more work than I figured! I'm glad I am an independent artist. My own boss, my own time....but also my own money lol. Anyways, keeping you updated! I'll post again this month!

Last night I played live at the "Grand Old Jamboree," a local picking parlor. This is the second time I played there, and the 2nd time total I played live. I was really nervous at first, but settled down by song two. I played two Waylon Jennings tunes, "Lonesome O'nry and Mean, and "Waymore Blues." The last two songs I did I wrote myself, which the crowd still seemed to enjoy it. I even had some old lady in the front row dancing lol. It made me feel really good about my singing and playing. I am looking forward to singing there again soon.

Ugly Week

It has just been a terrible week! The weather was cold, damn, raining and snowing for the past 3-4 days. A week prior to this, we had 70 degrees F weather. Now to go from hot to cold is just plain torture! I'm ready for summer, big time. I'm really getting sick of this cold icky weather. Another thing is that I was laid off of work once again. I think I only worked a month and a half out of the new year so far! Business is slow as hell.
In music news, well...there really isn't any news. I've been messing around with a few new songs, an trying different things with my old songs. I've also been doing alot of Waylon Jennings songs on the webcam and posting them on I'm not that great with other people's songs! There is still no release date on my cd or the new site. I am shooting for sometime in September for the website, but we will see how much recording I get done first. I have the layout finished, and everything is almost ready to upload. So my time hasn't been a total waste!
Anyways I'm back to work now, we are still very slow. I've been playing alot more guitar and getting back into the music look out!

Here We Go!

I really didn't think I would figure this recording software out today, but I played around with it for about an hour and am finally making progress! I practiced one of my songs a few times, and figured out all the little controls I need to mix it. alot of things are going to be happing in the next few months. I will be working on my new cd, and will be started.
So lets see here...I have to design a website and put content on it. I have to update my myspace with some of my songs and pictures. I have to record all of my music and send it in for copyright, and I have too keep you all updated here! I'm really going to be working on my music in the next coming weeks, hopefully I will get a song or two recorded. I'm not real good with the whole singing thing, but I'm sure it will sound OK. Anyways, just keeping you updated!

Nothing Yet

I said in the last post that I would update you all on my first recording session...right? Well, I never really had time to have a good one yet. I've just been messing around with the software, and seeing what I could do with my acoustic.
Its hard to find time to record when there are five people living in this house, and someone is always sleeping or resting! Its really hard to get them out of the house, which is my dad, mom, grandpa, brother and soon my sis and her husband when he gets done with college this year! Sometimes I just want to move out right away. But I can't see the point in paying rent for something you will never own. Rent around here is as much as a house anyhow so it would be just plain stupid to rent. I got some money saved up, and I hope to move out in the next year or two. Plenty of time to work on music! Hopefully I will have my second album out by then!
Just updating on my absence and what I've been doing. Nothing really yet, just messing around with the guitar, and trying different things with my songs! I will try and keep this updated twice a month! So stay tuned!

This is my blog for my hobby, music. I am a new musician, and not really that good, but I have passion in my music, and my songs. I write all of the songs you will hear someday, and I put music to most of them. There will someday be a website to promote my recordings, but for now this will do.
I've been playing guitar for about three years now, and have just moved from the acoustic to an electric. What better way to start playing an electric than going out and buying a new guitar? I bought myself a brand new Standard Fender Telecaster. The color is electron blue, and let me tell you, that guitar sings! I love it, and will never sell it. Hell, I might even be buried with it!
Anyways, this blog is to show my progress on my recording sessions, which will start tomorrow. I have twelve original songs to cut, and I have my whole life to do it in! So this blog is to try and keep me motivated! I will have a fifteen minute practice session, then an hour of recording sessions. I plan on working on one song till I get it right, then move on from there. So, we will see how it goes! I will keep everyone posted tomorrow on how the recording session went.
