One that I’ve been going thru in the past year is a reinvention of the career. More or less I’ve been adding an additional facet to my abilities and it’s now led to something that appears to be mushrooming into something really good. Despite last week’s setbacks I’m actually happy with some of the events that have transpired so far today. While it’s still to early in the game to know if there is really something concrete about to happen, but I do remain optimistic.
Of course I’ve been asked to start creating a song that is a style-a-like and I’m happy to do it knowing where it may end up. So I’ve got to get along with it in short order. I’ll leave you with my choice for today…
I have to roll with an early tune by the man, the myth, the legend, Joe Satriani. Certainly no stranger to the ins and outs of the music business. A man who has an immense talent for technically playing an instrument who came up during a time when being a technique God was more en vogue than it is now. The really great thing about Satriani is that he not only had the technique down, but he also has a lot of memorable melodies.
That’s a really rare thing, to find super proficiency with a secure sense of musicality. It’s something that I definitely strive for. Sometimes I think I hit it, sometimes I don’t. I’m sure Joe has the same trepidations about his own music.
Either way, I hope you’re seeing the optimistic light on things you’re doing and that you have the talent needed to carry it thru. Get some Joe as your soundtrack and you’ll be a happier camper for it.
