Joy

Back In The Studio!

Alright, alright…these are tough times.  We’re all supposed to be walking around with furrowed brows, clouds of unspeakable doom and gloom hanging over our heads like a bad hair day. But I can’t. I just can’t. Not today.

For today is the day we got the recording equipment set up and operating. Today Jack and I finally did something we’ve been trying to do for a number of years and several false starts…we recorded our music on our very own multi-track recorder.

Okay, so the world didn’t come to a complete stop….nobody got out of school for a holiday and I don’t see any parades forming, but in the midst of all the splendor and chaos of this human existence, two people had the beginnings of a dream come true.

I know what you’re asking.  “Now wait a minute…what about all that music on the internet. The stuff on YouTube.  The audio on SonicBids.  Where did that come from?”

Well…we also have a little GNX 4 Stomp Box that we’ve been using as a mini-4track recorder.  Problems with it are that you can’t plug enough microphones and so on into it to use all 4 tracks at once.  At least as far as this addled brain has been able to figure out.  Still, it’s done the job and has been a blessing.

I’m not the greatest techie these days; instruction manuals are getting more difficult to read.  Part of it is comprehension, that old learning disability rearing its ugly head.  Some if it is just plain impatience through the  learning curve.

One thing I know for certain….not all of life is misery and heartache.  Once in while there’s some absolute joy to be had, and there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that.  We actually need more of it.

So for today, Fifty Five Is The New Joy…because it is out there, just gotta find it and experience it.
