With all this music going on, it’s a wonder I can get anything else done. Recently I’ve had the fortune of getting some work done around the house with refinishing floors, repainting, and now a remodel of the bathroom. Because of this, I’ve decided to take on the project of stripping all the old paint off the doors and jams in order to repaint them from the wood up. My carpenter friend thinks I’m nuts. Feels that it’s not worth it. However, with probably over 10 coats of paint on them they look like a mess and to add another coat on them wouldn’t freshen them up as much as starting over with them.
I’m nearly done with the first door. Once I got all the paint off, he was actually impressed. Good. Because now the doors will look more defined and not smothered. At least that’s how I feel about it. Though I made a couple of small mistakes with the first door and jam, it’s a slight learning curve and I’m better prepared for the rest of them and it should go faster.
All this while I’m getting asked for songs to be co-written, produced, and otherwise finished. It’s bound to keep things interesting in life for at least a couple more months. Especially as I’m still working on re-tagging all my current catalog too…
I highly doubt there’s ever been a song written about a door, much less a jam. However there are lots of musical jams. Today I’m going with a track that sometimes drives me crazy when it comes on my stereo (which I’m still enjoying the use of remote control and streaming with – I’ll never go back, this is too much fun). This song or rather jam is called Woodstock Jam and it’s by Joe Satriani.
There is a definite flavor going on here that reminds me of the kinetic nature of the changes going on around myself and my house. So right now it’s not driving me nuts but rather giving musical chaos that explains the surroundings. It’s long, it’s a process. Enjoy and may you get your projects finished in less time.
