Hello everyone and hope you've all had a great week. Not much to report on this post so I'll keep it short this time, but it's always nice to share what I've been up to so I'll tell you what I can.
The main highlight for this week has been recording more lead guitars for the new World Beyond album coming at the end of the year, which has been intense and challenging but also a whole lot of fun. Despite spending most of every day playing guitar for that this week, I also took some time out to work on some new techniques by studying the great guitarist John 5. It's always great to explore some of the more "alien" styles of music to me (such as country/bluegrass), and although my right hand fingers are sore as heck from chickin' pickin', it's been a blast learning all these new licks and techniques which I hope to bring to my own music and session playing at some point!
On an unrelated note, Avicii's new EP was very enjoyable. I gotta get back to making some electronic Jabun music again soon!
And that's about it for this week. As mentioned in the last blog post, things are pretty hectic at the moment on my end, so I'm not sure whether I'll be making blog posts over the next few weeks. As it currently stands, I'm up to date with the recording for the World Beyond album, but I know there'll be up to 5 more guitar and bass parts coming my way soon which I'll get to soon. I don't think that'll be for a week or two though, so I'm not sure what next week will have in store. Possibly some Better Than The Book writing or working on the website again, but we shall see. Anyways, thanks as usual for stopping by and supporting JabunAudio, hope you have a great week or few until the next blog post, and I'll be back to it as soon as I can. Take care!
