DAILY GRIND

Here’s where I keep track of the stuff that I do daily as a musical artist/ creative entrepreneur.

My plan is to produce more content while also working on preparing for live performance.

I have new material that I have written plus a ton of unfinished or unreleased material to draw from.

I’m thinking that trying to create and release one good piece of content a week should be my goal. My idea is to release one legit original song a month with a video as well as maybe a cover and an instrumental or maybe a live performance clip. The end result being at least 2 songs and 2 videos a month.

In the meantime I need to start working on getting my music in front of people. I need to be more consistent about posting interesting stuff on social media. More engaging pics, more interesting posts, etc. I need to get out more and talk to people more. And of course start doing shows…

I have adjusted my lifestyle a bit to start looking better but I need to stay on that and get shredded. My appearance is very important as an up-and-coming recording artist. Gotta stay on that.

If I’m going to play Warr Guitar I really need to find a source for strings as well as update my gear. A Kemper or AXEFX unit might be a good idea for guitar sounds. I’m OK on bass gear and cabs for the moment I suppose.
