Yea, I have some things to post here that arenít depressing or negative!
I have had a pretty good stretch lately of positive stuff.
I went to the beach, which I love to do.
Started doing yoga, meditation and acupressure again. The acupressure is giving me some pretty amazing results, and quickly.
I also made some progress on my logo and label design for my home-based business which makes me super happy.
I think getting more sun and vitamine D is helping too plus I am trying to drink a ton of water.
I did have an off day and drank too much wine and felt unmotivated in between the good days but that is to be exspected for me.

Hello! I have been away from here for a couple of months.

I am an actor (usually for fun, sometimes for very low pay). A lot of introverted folks are drawn to performing, I've found. Anyway, I just got cast in a show with a director I really like.

I'm starting to do acupuncture again too, it's more than acupressure. I'll tell of results later!

Today I managed to persuade my mother to let me use the fold out table we have in lobby of the house as makeshift workbench so I could fix my guitar. But she insisted on having me sit the each guitar on a big towel when I was working on either of them.

Anyway, I successfully restrung one of my guitar and fixed the intonation on another. And fixing the intonation was something I’d never previously done before. But, thankfully, there are tutorials on YouTube on how to do both of these things. And it saves having to take my guitars to my local musical instrument shop every time I need to have them fixed or restrung. Even though, I had become a bit of regular customer there in when I was younger.

Oh, and a few weeks ago, I wrote a 3 minute piano instrumental over the course of 3 days; and, for once, wasn’t tempted to changed or re-recorded parts of it again when I was listening back to it recently.

Really? I'm still kinda undecided about uploading my music. But that's probably me just be overly self-conscious?



^ This is the recording software I used to make the track. And it has the ability to publish songs directly to Sound Cloud if you have an account there. But I don't currently have an account there, just saying... Not that I'd be against signing up.

My oldest sister is always pestering me to let her hear something, if I happen to be in middle of putting together a drum track or whatever when she walks into my room. Telling me I get my music uploaded. And the local tattoo artist who's done all my tattoos, and is a family friend, said much the same when I told him I was just getting into the whole producing and recording side of music, from having only played guitar.

Anyway, I'll just master and make a few tweak to the track - make sure the volume is right - then I'll see about uploading it.

It's already done, pal! Ah recorded it like a month ago, but haven't export it from my DAW as an audio file yet.
I just need to think up a song title for it; as well as a moniker for my Sound Cloud account.
The less naff, shite n' bawlick it is the better, to be honest. Then I'll start uploading.

And as I said in my previous post in this thread, I can publishing my songs directly to Sound Cloud cuz I'm using this software.

Though, I don't whether I want a single Sound Cloud for all my music, or if I want to keep things separate?
As I've got some unfinished rock/metal instrumentals on my laptop as well some electronic tunes?

Also, which thread on here should I post the link to the song in once I've uploaded it?

Would it be worth starting a new thread?

I know, yer probably all gonnae respond to me saying: ďGraeme, just do it, ya fanny!Ē

Ah mean Iíve got - oh, 37 tracks in total on my laptop at the moment. But Iíll need go over them and see which songs are done and what I still havenít finished. Oh, thatís all since April 2017, by the way. When I went through this absolutely mental phase of writing 2 songs per day, and starting another before going to bed, so I had summit to work on the next day. Write... Mix... Done...Next!! Repeat!

And I almost had an albums worth of tracks done by June 2017; but my family life went to shit over the summer and sent me into a pretty dark depression. So, I took what I half-jokingly referrer to as an ďindefinite hiatusĒ from music in July 2017, and went through a bit of an ďemoĒ phase. Well, minus the shit-tastic music, obviously... But, anyway, Iíve recently got back into the swing of making music.
So, weíll see how things go...

Awrite, I'll see about signing up to SoundCloud and starting another thread on here for my music.
Might wait until I'm in a better mood though. Not doing so great lately.

Whoa!! Don't get yer hopes up as it could be shite? :giggle Hmmm... I think I've come up with thread title for my music.

Anyway, I had wee look into SoundCloud and there's an optio that a creates an account for you if you have Google account (which I do). And you can easily edit account names and URLs whenever you wish. Which is handy to know Aas I wouldn't want to pick a moniker and end up stuck with it, y'know?
