Guitar Center and Delia*s took my money this weekend

Some of what I bought this weekend:

Was included with this —–>

Mine’s red.

I did not go out Friday or Saturday night. I was just in my productive mode with music. I spent most of my weekend figuring out Cubase LE and Ableton Live Lite and recording some music. I’m in the very beginning stages but I’m finally getting to record some solo music again. It’s been since I was 19 and I’m turning 26 on Thursday, so you do the math haha. But this time it’s D.I.Y.
I remember being a scared teenager and driving to the studio in Annapolis. I had no idea what I was doing and I remember Dave Benischek (who was producing my song) telling me “You need to act more confident! Even if you aren’t truly confident, just pretend you are and then eventually you will be!” That was actually good advice that I still use. Haha, that was like a hundred years ago. But at the same time, it feels like just a few months ago.
I’ve definitely gotten much better with being comfortable in the studio, no problem. I haven’t worried about my parts over a studio date since then. But that was in real studios with producers. I’m going to have to go through some growing pains with recording it myself. I’m looking forward to learning, though.

I ended up stopping by Guitar Center Saturday afternoon for what was going to be a quick visit that ended up lasting a few hours haha. I ran into some people and was talking  for a whhhiille to one of the guys who works there. I’m considering getting a drum machine I was messing with there but I’m not sure yet.

Maybe I’ll go see Eleven54 at Fletcher’s tonight… if I can tear myself away from my music for a few hours. We’ll see.

  1. I have an M-Audio too. Haven’t gotten to use it much but it’s pretty neat.

  2. I knew you had good taste ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hehe.
    M-Audio seems to make a lot of neat stuff!!!

  3. We should try to collaborate somehow!

  4. I make it unanimous. All that remains is the details of how to.

  5. Let’s do it Nat/Natalie King Cole style haha.

  6. The only flaw in that theory is that a) I’d have to be dead for at least 30 years, and b) I’d have to record my contribution on three-track analog tape at Capitol Studios and let some poor schmuck in a modern-day recording studio deal with the resulting mess. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    But seriously, I’m all for it.
