Its been a crazy day

 

  I went walking this morning and all the water was still standing from the rainfall the other night. I walked around two miles and as I was coming up this steep hill, an old white woman came upon me riding a bicycle , she was gasping for air , I said " Heyhe are you OK? She just kept pumping on up the hill to the church . I saw her drinking some water from her bottle, then she took off again . I yelled at her and asked how far you got to go , she said," By the time I get back to my car I will have rode 16 miles ,I was like Daaang ! She must be in good shape to ride that far. 

  I have been walking for a while now but I am gonna take it more seriously . The new year is almost here and its a good time to re think and make some plans and new goals to do. I'm going to add some fitness to the list for myself . Walking two miles takes me around 45 minutes ,im gonna start timing it and picking up speed. Do you have an exercise program for yourself ?

CALHOUN COMMUNITY COLLEGE KEEPS THE BLUES ALIVE

 

  I want to thank Matt Westmier , Jimmy Cantrell and the staff over at Calhoun Community College for welcoming me to their Decatur campus. Matt ran into me a while ago while playing at a local music venu in Huntsville Al. called the AmendmentXXI. I had been a regular artist there for two years. He asked if I would be a guinea pig for his recording engineering students. I figured it would be interesting to watch and just maybe they would come up with a project I could use for release every now and then.

  I went into Calhoun Barnwood Studios with an open mind and patience knowing it was a classroom environment and not a real professional recording studio setup where things have to move faster and deliberate, instead it would be slower and step by step.

  That first week I was there they talked about microphones types and the instructor draws all these crazy diagrams on the board and talked about patterns and frequency and stuff , and the days go by, finally they get to the actual hands on. Setting up the stands, placements,cabling, logs, isolation and I said. “ wow! “ What have I got myself into ? “  Everyone got a grade but me.

   I was actually putting my time into this class of young people who have no interest in the Blues but they all need to learn how to record it. Blues has been called roots music and now we get to see its roots. “If these students learn to record my blues, they can record all other music types too” I kept telling myself.

  I was delighted to see the looks on their faces when they made me happy with their recording projects. They learned what a happy client can look like and how to bring about a session with someone that may not be mainstream music.

  The greatest reward for me is to watch them learn and knowing they are the future of all music of all types. I hope they go on to long and successful careers in recording and I’m sure some of the students will. I am delighted to share some of their student work with you here worldwide thru my website. Enjoy.
