So, Dirty Rose rehearsal tonight for the first time in a couple of weeks due to Craig living it up in Vegas!! Got another rehearsal on Thursday night to warm up for the EP launch this Friday in Bathgate!
I've been trying to get my head around keyboard for improvisation class in college but it doesn't really seem to be happening in any amount of a hurry...
I really don't think I was made to play keys.. I can work out the theory, and play it.. slowly.. but doing both at the same time I have to admit is a slight weakness, drum music/tab is almost second nature for me to read and play now, but actual musical notation is proving to be a bit distant, Its getting there though! Not at all bad for about four weeks of keys playing I think!!
I have got my hands on my dads video camera at the moment, I am going to try and document some of the tour with The Birthday Suit later this month so I am just messing about with it at the moment. I had a bash at recording a drum cover video, and just trying out some conversion software that I need to use for the video files which all seem to work! However I think for a cover video to look as good as they should, a full on acoustic set up looks a lot better than my little practice set up in the garage. So I can't promise an upload of a video in the immediate future but this is in the works!!!
Just putting some finishing touches to the website. I'm waiting on confirmation that I can use a couple of photos because of copyright reasons so hopefully this all goes well :)
Keep an eye out!!!
Been back at college now for about a two weeks, classes are all still getting into the swing of things.
Started work on my website a few days ago and its almost finished, just waiting on a few things getting confirmed.
Did some listening to different count bassie tracks for improvisation, also played the keys in class. I will really have to practice playing keys so I will hopefully be able to invest in a cheap keyboard to practice.
