Labor Day in A restart

The holiday weekend was good. Got a lot of things done - cleaned out a storage unit, hung pictures on the wall, I set up my office/music room/cat hangout/den whatever you might call it. It’s the room where I work, my desk for work is set up there, my music stuff is all in there. I have a couch in there now and it’s a quiet place to do some reading or as I am doing now, writing. The cat hangs out with me about 90% of the time so his tower is in here too.

I haven’t been around here so much, I’ve written occasionally but I haven’t been writing or noting much, just kind of with a few who are responsive to me but my favorites entries are overwhelming. You are all writing a lot more than I am! I will get back in a good rhythm here soon.

I discontinued the lessons I was taking with my guitar instructor because I feel like I’m at the end of what I can learn from someone else right now, if that makes sense. What I need to do is like a graduate student, an independent study. I want to devote all my time to that. My teacher was incredible and a great player, but I can’t really spend the hours on my own work and on what I was working on with him as well. He did wonders for me though, taking private lessons is a huge huge benefit. I’m excited to see what is coming in the not-too-distant future.

Oh, one or two people have noticed that my original username “colder” is taken - that’s actually me. THIS username was my original one from OD back in 1999 or so. I just registered the “colder” name here so I could keep it, essentially, I don’t want it to get taken in case I want to switch back. But I won’t be writing under that one unless I completely switch back over at some point and I would post that here.

Not a lot in the way of goings-on. What should I write about in the future? Any ideas?

Both of my parents played guitar. My mom leaned towards classical and my dad was more rock n roll. I tried to learn. It's much harder than I anticipated. My son plays here and there. I was surprised how easily he picked it up.

It's nice to have a room of your own to work or play or write. I have a room, too but it's the bedroom. I call it my office/library/art studio/executive lounge/private screening room...whatever it is I'm doing at the time is what it becomes. lol.

Yeah, there's a lifetime of learning there if you want it. I respect classical players probably more than anyone because it's SO traditional and so deep, and the technical skill required is so off the charts.
