Time has passed. I have been faced with technical difficulties, concentrating on work and family and taking my guitar playing in a new direction. I have blown amps and speakers and smelled burned wires and rattled fabric.
After rebuilding my Dean V and creating a new tuning and string set up I was excited and riffs were coming along well but the ease at which songs come to me has slowed a great deal. This is unfamiliar ground for me. I do like what I am hearing but song construction is not flowing as it did when I went acoustic or when I just jam with the blues. I have a new found respect for the "math metal" bands. I find it difficult to do with out other peoples input. I have almost stopped playing. I post this for only one reason. To make myself play daily. Get something recorded and put it on the site.
