New Dimensions

Post date: Feb 10, 2014 4:14:21 AM

I have declared for myself that 2014 was going to be a year of diversity. I'm opening up to new genres of music. I am stretching to make my weak areas stronger. I'm reaching higher to grow my craft. I've been fortunate to have some super awesome musician friends that work with me to help achieve my goals. Most of the time it may just be a suggestion, a comment, or a word of advice. All of those are gladly received. Then there are those few special friends that welcome you in their space and sit down with you one on one and ask, "What can I do to help"? Those are the most treasured moments for me. I do gain knowledge from Youtube, Bass Player Magazine, and books. Unfortunately, those methods have proven to not be as effective as the one on one learning workshops that I get the pleasure of attending. A Special Thanks goes out to all of the guys who share their experiences and knowledge with me to help accelerate my time to obtain my goal. My desire, at the moment, is soloing over changes. Learning to play lines and notes as a singer would sing them. For me, this is not an easy task because I do not sing, so it's a whole new Dimension to my world of music. As I've noticed from past experiences, if it's worth having, you have to put in lots of work. So this is my charge and quest for 2014.

Bass your life in God.
