Some inspirational words from David Seah in a blog post.
what I was lacking was the great truth that the right attitude is more than just having discipline. It is also believing that doing any work at all is worth doing well, and choosing to live that way is a mighty testament to the universality of Excellence in all we do.
I think David is well worth reading. He has also developed the Pocket CEO series of printable personal planners.
He also has an excellent example of how to do a personal wiki.
There’s an amusing collection of Top Ten Church Worship Lies over at Music Academy. While trying to keep within the spirit of the post (ie not taking life too seriously) I would like to stand up for all us bassists who would dearly love to employ more effects in our playing.
I’ve got a Zoom 506, not a great pedal (auto-hiss as standard according to one friend with some justifiction) but most of the time I use it just as a tuner, sometimes adding some octaver. It’s so old that Zoom don’t even have a page for it any more! Just a mention in the History section.
How I dearly want to use the distortion/flange effect I used on a recording in my band at Uni. Perhaps I’ll slip in some wahwah here and there and see if anyone notices.
Until then, I shall work on introducing the Ukulele.
