i had lunch with my dad, it was nice. we walked/took the shuttle and then got food and saw some of my pals that work at the restaurant we went to and my dad was really embarrassing but it was kind of nice to be embarrassed by a parent cuz its been a while since my just my dad and i did something together.
this morning my downstairs neighbor told me that i am “very not good at all” at bass and that i should try a new instrument. i’m unsure whether that earns me rock n roll points, or if that means i should quit…
there’s a huge spider on my desk and instead of killin it i watched it wander around for 10 minutes and took a bunch of snapchats and stuff
spider friend could be cool
learning a new instrument has been really weird/hard/great all at the same time. i’ve been doing lots of music stuff the last year but its all just been fine-tuning stuff on drums and keys, both of which are instruments i’ve played from more than 10 years. i haven’t been sucky at an instrument since i was like 11, ya know? and i feel like you’re allowed to be dumb and stupid and bad at instruments when you’re a teenager but i feel like right now everyone around me is sooo damn good at what they play that its kind of hard being over here like YAY SCALES YAY I COVERED A BLINK 182 SONG IN MY ROOM I SHOULD PUT A VID ON YOUTUBE ya know?
i’m really excited to get good at bass but its been frustrating cuz i kinda just expected to just magically be good at it but helllooo i have zero experience with stringed/fretted instruments. drums and piano help with timing and notes/scales and just generally having a “good ear” for music, but like i’ve had such a hard time holding down strings, strumming and plucking, stretching between frets; its just muscle memory i have never attempted before. idk its so fun but i just wanna magically be good enough to start playing with a band but right now i’m just not there yet.
tldr; bass is cool, i am not
aaaand i made it about 5 minutes in before finding a new show. yuck.
i was going to start watching archer but all i can hear is bob belcher.
