what i’ve learned and realized today (advice to myself + to others)

19 Mar

Strive to gain more experience playing live in public and on the web. Be brave.

Whenever you can, experiment and try out new gear. I am all about celluloid guitar picks of lately. How have I lived without Planet Waves? I looooove the Planet Waves capo. I really do. (I’ll forget about the incident returning the defective PW capo from before.)

Keep trying to grasp music theory. Eventually, it will all come and make sense.

Don’t skip out on practicing. Practicing really works.

Playing covers feels like being an architect and a designer. You’re not going to reinvent the wheel because it’s already been done many times before. But how are you going to structure and change the feel of a song? How are you going to own the song?
