I got up today. got ready. came downstairs. opened up my digital journal and logic.

and played as if i was on stage (at 8am). then i listen back and take notes. here it is. i hope you guys do stuff like this.

here are the notes. they are usually brief like this. sometimes me telling me i suck. but not so bad today.


i think i did good. and i felt totally comfortable. was it because i used rubato? i think rubato is an important thing when playing solo. time to get your center!

song is you was finally ok. and i finally found a cool way through the bridge.

everything is smooth so far. time is good, maybe i dropped a beat in Song is you.

blue bossa was cool.

beautiful friendship
pulled a couple of cool blues licks

AND do performances. that is record yourself. and then walk 'onstage' and play a 15 minute of 30 minute set. and don't stop, just like you would NOT stop in a concert (or be very embarrassed). then post it on VW!!!!!
