365 DotU, Day 71: We’re baaaaaaack…

I’m afraid I’m still going to be time crunched for a while here, but I think this week will be back to normal (ha! whatever that means…).

Today, I finally recorded a song I’ve been doing at jams for a while now: Concrete Blonde’s “Joey.” It’s the first song I ever tried to learn to play and sing on the electric bass, although just did a little acoustic guitar cover for today. I still struggle with keeping a regular pulse without a drummer or a metronome around to keep me in check, so I thought it might be good for me to try bass work on it.

Naturally, when I did it on the acoustic guitar, I found an excuse to rush. Zoom!

I actually have tried to do a version with electric fun and drums and whatnot, but it just didn’t work too well. I still have a lot to figure out before I can make that work.

About L. M. Bernhardt

For a good long while (15 years or so), I taught philosophy at a little private university in northwest IA, and occasionally branched out into playing music, dabbling in photography, experimenting with food, and writing nonsense on my blog. The philosophy teaching part ended in 2017 (program elimination via prioritization), but never fear! I've just finished my MLIS at San Jose State University, and I'm currently on the market looking for new adventures in either philosophy or LIS. For now, I labor at a fairly interesting administrative job in order to support my dogs in the lavish manner to which they've become accustomed.
