Well trying not to think about music I now have the first verse and chorus of a song (Folk/acoustic type thing) that’s popped into my head out of nowhere. Todays back brace session had to be stopped as it felt like something went ping somewhere in my back. Its easing now so I think it was a minor realignment but it was a painful for a moment. I shall be interested to see what happens in July now they have downgraded the alert status to 3. I think this is the onset of the going down to one metre by the sounds of things.
At present I seem to be just gently drifting around the edges of agoraphobia little. Also my appetite is still quite off and if I don’t eat regularly it does affect me as I have a fairly fast metabolic rate.If we go down to one metre and there are places like pubs opening I shall I think take the risk.It seems obvious to me that with all of the huge hints being dropped at present by all and sundry on the government side that’s a lot of stuff will open up in July. If that is the case then I’m going to have to strenuous efforts to connect with people to keep myself sane.
I don’t have too much hope of anything in the way of gigs turning up anytime soon but a bit more contact with her relatively normal human beings might be quite useful my partner is plodding on ok but it is in her nature how to be a socially distanced person and some of the on the spectrum habits she has as mean apart from not being able to go and visit her sister’s face to face which she did not do often very little for her personally has changed.
I know it’s that people on Facebook are getting quite sniffy about some of the folk doing live streams and making quite a few snarky comments often though it is the case that those making said comments cannot do live streams themselves because they would need some sort of a band to do that thing rather a lot of it does seem like sour grapes.
I listened to the last tune I recorded which when I was doing it I thought was perhaps rather throw away however it actually isn’t in my humble opinion as it’s a song and doesn’t have any instrumental breaks I deliberately took a lot of care on the vocal I used the microphone which I borrowed from Ralph as he has a collection of these that he particularly wanted me to try buy and one or two other bits of tech including a very nice compressor and enhancer which is copied from a design made by Joe Meek the Looney from the 60s I then doubled vocal in the mix and was delighted to find after a couple of days when I listen to it that it actually does does sound very distinctive.
