Around 14 years ago, I dated the girl who would eventually be your wife. And then your ex-wife. I learned that you were insecure and obsessed with her past relationships, and me in particular. You stalked me, and lurked on my website. You even told her to demand that I take down this photo from my Boston trip in 2007. I guess you weren’t man enough to do it yourself. And respecting her wishes, I removed it.
Well now we’re friends again, and I know how you mistreated her. So look what I found on a web cache! And this time, it’s staying here FOREVER.
(Posted with her consent, keeping her needs and wishes in mind. Crazy concept!)
I’ve been working on a lot of music lately. Sometimes, ideas and concepts come from unusual places. This time, it came from software.
I was trying out Sibelius, an excellent music notation program. I usually don’t go about writing music in a transcription app, but I was dragging notes around on the staff when ideas came to me, so I went with it.
It was recently asked of me by a former student how I play multi-octave scales on the guitar. The answer involves a seven-note scale system I developed about 10 years ago while a in college. With it, I can fly up and down the neck relatively easily. I’m sure someone else on earth – probably many individuals – have the same scale system since it’s based on basic common sense. So, I thought I’d blog it for the rest of the world to enjoy.
