So, from the last written post I had mentioned that I've gained back the interest in writing music again. Playing as much guitar as I can during the week and letting songs develop mentally has been a challenge, but exciting. I've been working with the program, TabIt, which enables me to write drum parts for songs that are still under development. It wasn't hard to learn the program, however, I've found some features that make the process a little easier to deal with. The writing can still take some time and especially finding out new tricks it's help me expand more creatively.

I'm currently writing for a band that I can't really talk about right now (let's just say that I'm going back to a project that I've been wanting to get back on for a couple of years), a punk project, & a black metal project. And since I'm able to write various types of styles without depending on a drummer to help structure out these songs it's been fun just arranging and letting the songs just develop naturally.

So,. this is one of the things I've been working on as of late. By this time I would hope to have a good collection of songs to show. I'm hoping to release these on Vinyl someday and most likely on cassette. I know that I'll be quite busy in the next few months.

I'm also helping out a friend, Jen Hoang, learn guitar. She's been practicing quite a bit actually and I've been seeing some progress. With not having any musical knowledge to gathering the basics has me thrilled to see her progress so quickly. What I'm hoping for her to do is actually play in my level in a short amount of time and be able to rock out with other musicians. That's what I did when I started. I played with other people and just got good learning their techniques and styles.

A lot to work with this year. 2016 should be fun and challenging.
