Baby Steps

I’m still looking into electric guitars for Miss Muffin, in fact we saw a gorgeous grey one with a sparkly metallic finish at lesson this week. It was even a lefty! Then we saw a joe signature online, white isn’t really her style but maybe a red or blue? Still some research left to do but at least we’re seeing things we are interested in locally.

Electric Transition Considerations

I don’t regret buying Miss Muffin an acoustic guitar for her first guitar. It was relatively inexpensive as left-handed guitars go, it came in a cool blue & black finish she loves, and it has a lovely tone. She’s been playing for over a year and she sounds better all the time and as far as I can tell she enjoys it. Read the rest of this entry »

Pieces and Parts

Miss Muffin is turning out to be a pretty good guitarist. She really seems to enjoy it and I’m always impressed when I think about how far she’s come since her first lesson. Read the rest of this entry »

Keeping Busy

I’ve been keeping busy lately with online coding classes, personal projects, and starting up my own business. I keep thinking it should all be moving faster, that somehow I should be further along in the process, but I try to give myself a break now and then.

Dre will be done with school for the year soon. She’ll be doing some math over the summer break, a whole different story. Believe it or not come July I’ll be the mother of a teenager. Scary!

Obviously I’ll be setting up a professional website, a well as twitter, facebook, and LinkedIn profiles. Business cards are also a given, but I’m still looking for something else.

Noise Control

Miss Muffin has been taking guitar lessons for over a year now and she really enjoys playing. I’ve noticed a trend towards music with a harder edge which makes me wonder how long before she’s looking for an electric to play instead of her cute blue acoustic. Read the rest of this entry »

Life in 2015…

It’s hard to believe that we’re almost to the 1/4 mark of 2015. Lots of changes at home, including a move. Less change on the school front, still no money to finish. We’ve had wild weahter with temps in the mid 50s one day and the teens the next. Icestorms. Snowstorms. TTU actually cancelled classes for an entire week something they had never done in their 100 year history. I learned to play minecraft. I’ve read a few good books, I should probably blog them.
