Travel Guitar

I love carting around this a little travel guitar that my mother in law gave me. It's a little Yamaha which sounds pretty nice despite its size. I've had a lot of guitar players tell me that it has some decent tones to it. And then I remember that the strings for about 7 years old...and it still sounds fine. Enables me to keep practicing when I'm on a trip so I dont get rusty on the songs, or I can even write songs while I'm traveling.

Lyrics are difficult

It's crazy. It might take 10 minutes to come up with a good chord progression, and another 10 minutes for a good vocal melody. Maybe it would take up to an hour for both. But LYRICS seem to take me a couple of years. I've gotta figure out a new way to come up with lyrics. Maybe I just need more coffee...

Working on newer songs.

My friend Mike and I have been practicing about once per week as of late.  We just finished practicing the structure and vocal melody of a song I finished a couple of days ago.  I'm not sure what the song should be about.  I think the next album will have something to do with the Love of God for us. We're playing with a Drummer off of Craigslist.  Easy to play with, cool guy.  We probably need to hook up sometime next week for a rehearsal.
