Slowing Down

Things have slowing down of late. I made a decision to do less for the rest of the year knowing that I would have a full on time next year. Only problem is when I slow down I do less – by that I mean I do less extra work or extra things like write on my blog. The busier I am the more I get down… what is that old saying “If you want something done, give it to a busy person” it’s true, at least in my case when I am busy I get more done.

In saying that I have writing a new short story, which I have out up on Word Songs so go read it if you want.

I had a good time in Canberra last weekend, worked long hours during the day, but caught up with friends at night and even got to go out to an 80’s disco on Saturday (got home at 3.30am started work at 9.00 after dropping the boys off at 3 different place all over north Canberra – I was not the most alive person until after my 2nd coffee)

I have been introduced to a great new site warmoth where you can buy bits for guitars and build your own at home! Very nice body’s and necks… I could spend millions here! and I don’t play guitar! So go look and enjoy, some of the paint jobs are truly a sight to behold!

This has encouraged me to get out my old guitar and clean it up a bit – in preparation to one day actually learning to play it properly (I can play a few chords and even follow some songs (as long as they are easy chords or not to fast) I like to play guitar for fun (I as you may know play the drums in various bands including STOVER) and I really love doing that but for parties fun events etc a guitar makes more sense and I would love to be able to strum out a few Beatles classics or whatever for people to sing along with for fun. One day… hmmm!

So with all this time on my hands maybe I need to start getting busy with other things to help me out with this feeling of zero achievement…

One thought on “Slowing Down

  1. I used to think I was Steve Vai as well… before I realised that the guitar is a lot more bloody difficult to play than I had realised! I’m a left hander as well, so it’s tough for me to get an axe.That’s my excuse anyway.I’ll take a look at your story when I get the time. Oh yeah, and listen to the Stover disc.:o)
