Singing and Strumming

07 March, 2017

After moving across the neighborhood into the mansion - literally by Tokyo standards - I am now settled and starting to focus a bit more on music. This is good since my Berklee classes resume at the beginning of next month and need to be back and rolling by that time.

Over the past couple days I have been focusing on playing guitar and singing at the same time, since that is a skill that I really would like to possess. I play guitar fairly well at this point, but have a challenge when I have to vocalize while playing. It seems my strumming hand gets all weird in some places, but see that when I sing, sometimes I can strum much better since the rhythm comes more natural. Feels odd right now but hope to get over this soon.

A Blogging Platform That Bypasses Web Proxies

06 March, 2017

Not supposed to say or do this, but I have found a blogging platform that bypasses my work web filter. I knew that if I installed WordPress, that I could only get as far as the admin login screen, but would see nothing thereafter. So here goes... going to be nice to have a place to journal my journey here and everywhere else.

Working on some blues tunes, so will post those or links to Reverbnation once complete. Think it's time to do a harmonica debut, but still not confident enough.

Ordered a PCIx card with 4 USB 3.0 ports so I can plug the Scarlett 18i20 into a separate bus and get better performance. The computer seems to have a hard time determining the correct sound system lately, and think this will most likely be the best fix and long-term solution for performance of the DAW - Studio One 3.1.
