Day 9 Feeling low 

Hey Bud, I'm a sourpuss. I hate this feeling of futility. I don't know why I bother sometimes. Since you're the only one really reading this, I might as well be honest. A tidal wave of lack has hit me hard. Lack of finances, lack of opportunities, lack of time. However, I do have an abundance of ideas, although I don't know where it will get me. I'm an absolute beginner at everything I'm doing right now.

I was reluctant to write this because I'm trying to stay positive. So strange to feel low, and yet still hopeful in pursuit of a creative life. This pursuit is what I live for each day. It's why I moved here and still live here. All my silly Vines, pictures, demos, writing, whatnot give me this gut feeling that I'm on to something. And then on a dime, I'm filled with resentment that I can't really take the time to develop my ideas.

Right now I haven't zeroed in on any one thing. I'm glad we're blogging because I just want to do it all, no matter how half-assed it is. My spirit's starting to pick up. Thanks for coming up with this idea of blogging. So lucky to have a creative sister who gets it and spurs me on, and reads, listens and watches my stuff. Thanks Bud.

So since no one really is reading, listening or watching but you and me; I'm posting my cover of Oh Atlanta just for my own posterity. I did another vocal take and added a little mando hook after the fiddle solo since last you heard it. Later down the line, I want to look back and see if I make any progress. The only reason I recorded this song is I dig like the melody and chord progression. I've been to Atlanta a couple of times, but it holds no significance to me whatsoever. The Georgia countryside is beautiful though.

So without further ado. My demo of Oh Atlanta.

    I'm feeling kinda low, too. I dig your new track. It's amazing how much you got done! I'm going to sleep now (hopefully). I'll call you when I wake up.
