So much for that...

Well my brief stint as a lead guitar player has come to a quick end. It seems that the guys in the band that I have been playing with for the last few weeks are looking for a bigger time commitment than I am willing or able to give. Working a full time job and raising 3 kids cuts into practice time and I have my priorities.

I can't say that I blame them, but it is kind of a bummer, for me personally, just because it was a lot of fun to be able to jam with some other musicians. Oh well.

On a positive note, it was nice to learn that I am able to 'hold my own', so to speak, with other musicians. When all all you ever get to play along with is an iPod, you start to wonder if you are any good at what you are doing or not. I would never claim to be the greatest player, but it's nice to know that I don't totally suck.

Once my basement is done, I want to try to record some stuff using the M-Box and either Garage Band or Pro-Tools. Fuck it. Who needs other musicians? Overdubbing is the shit. I have not tried either the Garage Band or the Pro-Tools LE apps yet, so I am not sure which one might be easier to use (any opinions out there are welcome). I'm waiting till my basement is complete before I really try to delve into that.

In the meantime, I heard Mike Ness might be looking for somebody to join him for another rendition of 'Live Before You Die'. Cue it up iPod.
