It’s been an interesting week for listening to things. I haven’t really found anything that stood out, but at the same time, I barely spent any time searching out new music.
I have been enjoying a lot of Frank Turner, and while travelling around with my mum today we listened to him and also listened to the latest Paramore album, which I still really enjoy.
I have been chilling out and preparing the next few podcasts while enjoying a lot of Baroness, which has me inspired to write some music, or at least to pick up my guitar, and I’m looking forward to that, once I’m done writing.
I mentioned that I picked up a Stratocaster on Saturday, and it has thrown me into disarray about guitar choices yet again. I liked the way it played, it was the best first impression of a guitar I’ve ever had when I started try to play it felt so easy and so familiar, which might say something about the neck profile, and my familiarity with the shape, but it also might have been the guitar. I have no idea what I expected as well, and I played it through a Fender Tweed Junior, which was alright, though I know I won’t be playing that amp really, and it’s hard to actually replicate what I go for when I’m in a shop, I just try to see if it inspires me to create anything while I was messing around, and playing something that feels easy to play is very helpful, and I was shocked at how much I liked it.
Who knows where my guitar adventure will take me next, but I still don’t have a clear idea of what I really want, and there are so many options, and that is exciting.
Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!
