Woohoooo! I'm back! :) After a loooong period of absence due mainly to the author's part of lack of motivation!
Ok, first of all, updates! I'm now back in lovely sunny Muar for my sem break. The initial plan was for me to return for a week and then head back up to kl for job hunting. But apparently mum now wants me to find a job here in Muar, (which I've yet to do) so I'm stuck here, lazing the hours away, spending time on sleep and the internet more than ever before! Other than a few trips up to malacca, I've been slacking my butt off. I guess that being in Muar kinda slows you down a little, compared to the life in kl. It's the food in Muar I'm telling you...you KL people ain't tasted great food before you feasted your tastebuds on Muar's food! That's right!
HUGE fines that's staring at me down my face! Besides, I'm running out of clothes to wear(almost my whole wardrobe is up there) and I left my beloved Strat there! I'm missing it like nuts! What else do ya expect when one is separated from a loved one for too long. =P
There's a guitar fest in KL too in early December so I'm hoping to attend at least one of the concerts if afforded the time and money. The lineup sounds exciting even though it learns more towards the acoustic side. Check it out here.
The only thing I'm doing right for now is that I'm brushing up the technical side of my guitar playing, I didn't have the time and to be honest, motivation to really practice throughout the whole semester. But no fear! Thanks be to Jazz! Guitarist such as Paul Jackson Jr and Ronny Jordan are inspiring me to look at the guitar at a different perspective and angle. Jazz is tough stuff but everything is at the beginning right? Btw, check them out on Youtube or whatever if you have the time. :)
I've embedded two Youtube videos. One shows one of my favourite guitarist Paul Jackson Jr in action playing an intrumental cover of Keith Sweat's song 'Make It last Forever' and another is a cover of the Jimi Hendrix song 'Little Wing' by the late Blues legend Stevie Ray Vaughn(RIP).
Definitely the best ever 'Little Wing' cover out there. This video is of a guy
covering SRV's version and he does an amazing job of it. So I'll be posting it here as SRV's
performances for 'Little Wing' on Youtube doesn't really capture the spirit of the song as he did it on the album. I'm trying real hard to master it and at this rate, it's gonna take me my whole break to do so!
Ok! That's all for now folks!Cheers!
