Winston Psmith Posted January 1, 2013 Share Posted January 1, 2013 Not the "I'm going to join a gym and become Iron Man" kind of resolution, but good luck if that's part of your plan for 2013. I mean things we might really accomplish, in relation to our music. Here's my short list: 1) Get more music done. Nothing new here, but always at the top of the list. 2)Finish my project guitars. I've been working on the pink V, which has turned out to be less challenging than I thought, once I pulled the old trem. I also recently found a Squier SE Strat in my local pawn shop - it was in very nice shape, and well worth $60 + tax. I've said it before, but you've got to love a guitar you can take apart and reassemble with a Phillips-head screwdriver. 3) Get out more. There's a lot of music in my area, and I just haven't been getting out to hear enough, or play enough. It's not about money, there are plenty of free gigs, open mics and local jams, it's about inertia - no excuses. 4) Get back to the roots. A lot of the local music scene is Blues/Rock, Jazz, Punk, Celtic music or Jam Rock, along with a healthy Electronic community. It's time for me to spread myself out a bit, maybe even join a cover band? 5) Okay, the only heavy one - Be more grateful. I'm very lucky to be sitting here, drinking my coffee, and thinking about how I want to improve my music life in the coming year. I may not be rich, famous, nor particularly good-looking, but I'm still here, with all my digits, and my vital organs. It's easy to forget how fortunate we really are, when the shit gets deep, I just want to make more of an effort to remember, when that happens. That's what I've got to offer. Anybody else?
