I’ll begin to say that I haven’t been keeping up with the blog as much as I have in the recent past.  A lot is going on, but I don't want to make excuses.  I don’t know who is following my blog and I have no idea who cares to know my thoughts, but for those who are fol...

I need to be setting more realistic expectations for myself when I KNOW weeks are going to have more pressing priorities.  This is priority management 101.  Don’t set yourself up to fail!  After spending a week travelling for work, 2 weeks ago I convinced myself that I...

Last week was an absolute grind.  Fresh off the successful AFA grant notification, I literally spent almost 2-3 hours a day practicing.  My nightly routine would consist of:

  • Around 7:30pm-9pm: Get the kids in bed, work our Instagram account while I wait for the...

I’ve heard this saying so many times in this year alone, “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”.  I finally learned that this phrase was the coined by the philosopher Aristotle, this phrase aptly defines the modern concept of synergy.  When I discovered this,...

It takes a lot of coordination to get the team together for meetings and filming.  But when we do, the creative juices flow.  I realize that we all have families, friends, regular day jobs, and life to tend to, and this is what makes meeting in person so chall...

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...

 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...

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,...
