How I cheer myself up

I slept in today, not feeling too hot I guess. Couldn’t sleep at all, which is a recurring trend for me. I was feeling a bit down, so I picked up my guitar and sang. Granted the traffic outside is annoying at this sort of time from outside and my voice is a bit shaky today, but I thought why not share. Hopefully it’ll brighten up a few more people’s day, I can be hopeful!

I love this song, and figured sharing it would cheer up a special someone too. I hope you’re all having a good Monday. I hope this helps too, it cheered me up a little on a desire-less Monday.

New song of mine

I realised that I haven’t recorded anything in ages, I keep going through phases of hating shit. So I’m sitting here in about 5 layers freezing my arse off, my fingers are frozen and so is my guitar..So the logical thing to do was to pick it up and play it right? So this was the result, just a one take no re-recording or anything job.

It’s scrappy and imperfect, even by my low standards. But I really like this song that I wrote quite a while back but never really fit it together, much like a lot of my songs. This was my first hash at it, enjoy! Give me all the feedback, tell me how awful it is, what you’d change and so on. Thanks guys.

100th post – one of my favourite songs covered and a small update

So I had an awful night, it’s very Emily related. I think things are done, like finished. Over. I guess? I don’t really want to talk about it, I’m kinda numb to it and I think I should just try to move forward and try to grow as a person. I’m really upset and I didn’t want this sort of thing to define my milestone of 100 posts, it has been a weird ride. I wouldn’t say I’ve even made any forward steps over this amount of time. I’ve met some really nice people, and this experience helps me a lot. But progress? Lacking. I’m definitely a work in progress.

I just got myself a spur of the moment haircut, I’d pretty much say to put it simply I now have a Macklemore haircut. I feel very Essex and it isn’t me, but it looks smart, and I think it suits me. Whatever, the beauty is that hair grows eh? But in a suit I’ll be fairly dapper for my interview Monday.

I had a spare 5 minutes to myself so just picked up my guitar and recorded this: I love this song, I can hardly compare to the original but that doesn’t bother me. I guess this song sums up my current mood pretty aptly. Have a great weekend.

A new song cover

I just sat down and recorded this, the song has been stuck in my head constantly for the last week.

I’m in quite a weird place right now that seems to vary from day to day, sometimes I don’t even really feel like sharing myself to anyone. Nobody needs to hear a lot of my thoughts. I’m still a work in progress, I need to remember that. In every sense. I need to focus on being a happy individual before anyone else is a big part of my life.

My first recording

So after a little kick up the arse in terms on motivation I decided to record a really raw, scrappy version of a song that I love – Christmas TV by Slow Club The sound quality is crappy, but I like that I just recorded one take and posted it. No over thinking or picking my missed notes or dodgy transitions, just as it was. I like it that way. The quality is awful, and I know it’s far from flawless. Sorry not sorry.

I’d absolutely love any and all feedback, even if you’re just saying that it’s nowhere near as good as the original and that I should never do anything else. I really don’t care, I’m happy with it and I’m happy to share it. I love this song so I decided to pick up my guitar and just blast this out, no excuses.

Please give me some feedback. If you have a listen just drop me a comment and let me know what you thought and what you think I can work on. If you want to hear a song or any of my original stuff I’m sure that you can motivate me a lot towards recording more tracks. Whether they’re covers or original tracks.
