Summer.

Standard

It’s so nice when the weather is good and the sun actually provides warmth πŸ˜›

Seems to me like the sun is just for show in these parts πŸ˜€

Today I’ve been practising for the fundraising concert I’m doing for one of the local churches.

I’m a bit overwhelmed by my 3rd album, since there is so much happening musically in there. I’ve now decided to add even more to it, and I’ve also had some new ideas with more parts that I want to add on things I’ve already recorded…

(You can support what I’m doing here: My Patreon)…

Creativity and having lots of ideas can be very overwhelming at times.

I have lots of ideas for illustrated books as well, there’s no end…

It is interesting how someone like Jordan B.Peterson is running around the world preaching to people that they need to clean up their rooms and react to things properly, I wonder what his take on creativity would be?

Creative individuals write and create when they are upset, which means that they don’t really sort out the source of what makes them upset a lot of times. Creatives are also notorious for never cleaning their room or atelier as well πŸ˜›

Apparently you should clean up your room before you can save the world or create something πŸ˜›

Reminds me of this guitar expert I tried to take lessons from ages ago who claimed that: “you can only create if you know all the theory and techniques out there;” which is probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my life, not to forget this one:”If someone tells you what to create, then you’ll be super productive.” Needless to say, we didn’t see eye to eye….Creativity should never be boxed in or know limitations, unless you are working on something that is “made to order” or whatever, creativity is like water, it is all over the place, and if it is dammed up it will just explode at one point or the other. You might experience tsunamis of creativity. I normally work on multiple songs simultaneously in different genres…

Anyway….

Here are some pictures of me doing nothing…..

I’m guessing this is awesome, since blogging about nothing makes you cool.

EMG Pickups!

Standard

So now I’m back home in the UK, after a hectic and fun week over in the US of A! I went over to shoot some cool shred vids for Guitar World Magazine and thought ” hey since I’m in the US I can might as well go by EMG!” Which basically meant flying over to Oakland, California!

So how long have I’ve been using EMG? I got my first set back in 2009, the Kerry King signature set, in fact my very first tweet, is a tweet about my EMG pickups πŸ˜€

So, here we go!

I almost lost my flight the 29th as I waited 1 hour for a SuperShuttle that never showed up! Becoming increasingly stressed out, I eventually grabbed a cab and as we arrived to the airport I jumped out of the car and ran as fast as I could and was barely able to make it in time to get myself checked in.

By the time I finally got to the gate, they were already boarding the economy section. Thank you “Super” Shuttle.

The flight though, was absolutely amazing in terms of view! I also had wi-fi the whole trip ( you gotta love these American Airlines).

After my trans-American flight, I had to wait at LAX for a cute little plane that took me to Oakland, seriously I would like to own one of those and know how to fly one!!!!!

Once I had arrived to Oakland, I engaged in a very interesting Peek-A-Boo sΓ©ance with my driver, which basically took a whole hour…lol…before we finally found each other…again πŸ˜›

I should have taken a picture of the car, but alas, whenever I get drivers I always forget to take pics, which is a shame, because having a driver totally rocks \m/

It was a 2 hour drive
