So I was pretty active on the forum for a while... Taking part in the monthly challenges and learning and growing as a musician.
I decided to take my part time business full time. It sort of worked, but then things didn't work out. I spent a whack of time working IN the business instead of ON the business. That was my 2017, work work work work.
I continued jamming in my local church on Sundays. It was cool... And it's great to serve and be part of something bigger. But I have always wanted more (for the last 10 - 15 years I've been playing).
In 2017 I was involved with two different bands that both lasted like 3 weeks.
Band 1 was an existing band that needed a new electric guitarist. I joined them for a couple of practices and started learning their songs... at the third practice they disbanded... That sucked.
Then came along "Band 2", which was started with two people I knew and one I had never met. The band lasted 3 practices and then disbanded. I struck up a friendship with the new person I had met who was to be the lead singer/song writer.
Over the last 6 to 8 months my new buddy and I have been discussing music and making something happen, even it was only a 2 piece acoustic jol. He was in a band YEARS AGO that was doing semi ok on the local band scene. He felt like it was time to "reboot" said band.
So that happened. I'm now in an afrikaans grunge/rock band called "Errand is blomme". We've had 4 practices, so we've broken the 3 practice curse.
I'll try put updates and stuff on here. Keep rocking!
