April 29, 2018

While waiting for the wood, parts, tools, and ‘all of the above’, as sad as it is to say, I lost some momentum because of the weather.  The sun was finally shining and like everyone else in Southern Alberta, I was outside enjoying it.   It’s amazing how much we are aff...

I miss playing full pieces from beginning to end.  After weeks of learning notes, breaking up pieces into manageable parts, drilling then repeating over and over, I really miss the feeling of musicality when you aren’t learning notes any more, and I can just close my e...

I’ve been using my phone to “selfie-record” myself playing.  The aim is to give our followers a taste of some of the music I’m learning.   I’m also hoping that months from now, I’ll be able to see the progress and show that all this work is paying off.  It’s funny thou...

 It’s been slow week on the guitar build.  I don’t have all the tools necessary to complete binding the guitar.  Made the order last week and was hoping that it came this week.  In any case, the day job has taken the week over anyway, so even if it came I wouldn’t have...

 I closed the guitar body this week.   While filming, Jonard asked, “what does this step mean to you, how does it make you feel?  I straight up told him that it made me sad.  I literally strive to make each guitar brace a work of art. Cleaning the glue, chiseling each...

The concert I’m preparing for is not just for me.  I’ll be the primary performer, the organizer, and the one choosing rep and putting it all together, but I have no intentions of performing alone.  My goal is to produce a concert that is an extension of all the work we...

I had a dream earlier this week about bracing the top and back. When I woke up from my dream, I got excited to realize I actually had to do it in real life.  I think this means I’m obsessed with this project.  Always thinking, always wondering how to do things better,...

Back from a fantastic vacation and happy that I didn’t fall too behind in my practicing.  Mind you, I didn’t process much, but at least I didn’t digress.  Feeling refreshed and excited to be back home where I could practice in a controlled environment, I accidentally p...

April 2, 2018

Earlier in the week, when we arrived at our hotel in Anaheim, CA, the family and I were just chillin' by the pool.  I remember stepping away to grab a drink and snacks at the hotel café when I overheard some guitar playing.  I followed the sound and came across another...

As the title suggests, I’ve burnt out.  My body shut down at the end of the week with a cold.  The body and brain are tired from this week's events. A lot going on from different angles of life.  But as I mentioned in last weeks post, whatever will be, will be....
