A work in progress
Here is a video aptly titled "A work in progress". It seems like everything in my life is a work in progress. In music I am working diligently to grow my playing and writing abilities. The backing track to this vid is one of my experimental compositions from several months ago. I wanted to do a exercise, building on a steady vibe without changing the foundational part, in this case the bass guitar. There are really only two instruments used, a USA jazz bass and a Gibson Les Paul standard. I spontaneously laid down the bass line and then layered on a few guitar tracks. It is much like a gesture sketch in figure drawing. Skating is also a work in progress for me. The video tells the story in super slow motion. I am open to any tips or perspective from anyone so, please feel free to share!
