Guitar Withdrawal and Inspiration

April 10, 2013 11:46PM

I was in New York and for whatever reason tumblr hates my iPhone and I didn’t bring my laptop, hence my absence.

Speaking of absence, while I was away, I really missed playing guitar.  I didn’t bring a guitar with me.  Depending on the trip, I’ll bring a guitar with me.  Knowing what I would be doing, I didn’t feel the need to bring one.  This is the hardest it had been in a while.  I’ve really been getting back into playing guitar with that vigorous passion that I had when I declared my need for a guitar when I was 13.

That’s not to say that I’ve been dispassionate, but I definitely was off my game for a bit.  But that is no longer the case.

The band’s in working order, I have a stable living environment (two, actually), and most importantly, I’m inspired.  Between the music I’ve been listening to, the music I’ve been writing, the shows (bands and Broadway musicals) I’ve seen, and I have some of the best people around me.  The ball’s in my court.  Now I just gotta shoot, rebound if I miss, and try again.
