as of right now, i am just starting to write things that i actually want to keep!
i started an 'indie folk band', and we have only practiced once. it was awesome though! we started on four songs, and they all sound awesome. so far it is only myself, my friend Marissa
, and my friend Colin
. we are most likely going to get some more people (especially because we wrote 4 parts to one song, and i dont think i want to have to sequence anything in this band). marissa and i are both looking for other instruments to buy, i would love to have a piano player, an accordion player, and have some banjo and mandolin. anyone to join will most likely be switching around a lot. i wanna do everything! well, i dont think i could pull off accordion, or anything past simple drums, but you never know...
i am also starting a band that i am going to call 'The New New Warriors', and we will mostly be writing songs about video games, anime, and comic books. it will be grand. my friend anthony and i are planning on writing an ep or album completely about Final Fantasy 7...
i almost forgot about this, but i am going to jam with my friend Jim Lewis for his new band. it turns out that he is ending the ever-amazing band The Green Rifle, and wants a drummer and Rhythm guitar player/keyboard player. i am gonna try for the guitar, and i have a friend that is an amazing drummer (i think that i want to do more stuff with him. my only problem with that is that it is intimidating having someone so amazingly talented working with my extremely simple songwriting.)
so yeah! i'm finally musically active again!
