As much as things are definitely moving forward, I’m really feeling like I am spinning in a circle. I’m not sure why. Part of it may be due to a person I had rented a room to – to help him move to LA and get his start in music here. He moved his stuff in then never showed up. Promised to pay what he owed and left his things. I’ve finally had enough of the promises of the money owed and the things left at the house, including a computer will be put in the bin to be taken out with the trash at the end of the week.
I know once I’ve done that, I won’t get any of the money owed, but at the same time it won’t be chewing up space either. It will be the end of the line of things that I allowed for no reason.
I do know that I’ll be working on a song for a new co-writer later today. So I do have that to look forward to.
In the meantime, I’m going to get going with a song by Joe Satriani called Circles. It’s likely one of my most favorite guitar riffs in the opening sequence ever. I remember learning it when I was learning to play and how cool I felt having picked it up. It’s not the easiest riff and it’s got a lot of intervals in it. But the movement sounds so amazing, especially dressed with the delays that he has on his guitar.
Then the song kicks into hyper overdrive. Hard core shredding happens. It blasts thru your brain for a while and then circles back around to the mellow vibe of the opening riff. Comes full circle if you will.
Much like the junk I’ve gone thru. It’s all finally coming full circle as well.
