Day Twenty Eight (Year Eight)

Today was a quiet one, spent mostly on the road. I brought a notebook along with me on the journey, but didn't get a whole lot of time to sit down and work on lyrics. Perhaps tomorrow.

Still a good day of adventure with my Dad.

Day Twenty Seven (Year Eight)

So, I got down into the studio today, but not for anything approaching as long as I had wanted to.  It was long enough to putter with song ideas, but not long enough to make any appreciable progress.  In truth, what I need to do is get some things put away, get the space back to something approaching a working environment.  There's a (very) slight chance that could happen in the morning, before my Dad and I take off on our crazy eclipse adventure, we shall see.

Otherwise, I've got a notebook and a pen packed and ready to go for our 36 hour jaunt, so maybe during the car trip part I can find some lyrical inspiration.

A good day overall, but one that could have used more music in it.

Day Twenty Six (Year Eight)

Today was even quieter than yesterday.  Granted, there was a funeral to attend, and then we spent the rest of the day hanging out with family, so there wasn't necessarily a whole lot in the way of time, but still.

What I had was a lot of good brain time in the car, which was helpful for thinking through things as they sit right now.

I'm really hoping that tomorrow will offer a bit more studio time, but I'm not sure how realistic that is, as my Dad is going to be getting here tomorrow afternoon.  We shall see.

Day Twenty Five (Year Eight)

I was actually able to get in some good studio time today, and in so doing, I finally got myself started working on the EP.

I made some good progress, but as always, I didn't get a whole lot of work done on any of the musical ideas I was already working on. Lyrically, I was able to pull from the things I have as a way to get started.

Today was a good start.

Day Twenty Four (Year Eight)

Today was a day where we were mostly on the run.  Out of the house, celebrating The Mrs.'s birthday a day early.  That said, I was able to pick up a couple of new magazines and a book of Guitar World's 100 best guitar solos.  All 100 are transcribed, so that should make for a fun iTunes playlist and some good learning.

The only bummer of the day was that I didn't have much in the way of time to work on the EP, but I'm really hoping to get to that for a good chunk of tomorrow.

Today was definitely a lot of fun.  We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Day Twenty Three (Year Eight)

Today was a great day.

I had thought last night that I had all of the lyrical pieces organized, but today I decided to take a glance at the notebooks that have piled up in the studio, and I ended up hitting the jackpot. I found a few pages of really good lines that will really help me to get this project off the ground.

For the first time in a long time, I am feeling really good about both the musical and lyrical sides of the EP.

Day Twenty Two (Year Eight)

Made a bit of progress today.

I spent a bit of time working with the lyrical side of things. It took a little while, but I got all of the pieces and parts assembled in the same place.

I also tinkered with the music side of things for a few minutes.

Tomorrow is going to be the day I start putting it all together.
