I've been blogging just over a month. And it feels good to have a place to vent and explore and talk about everything that's going on in my life musically. A little more actual music performance and writing would be nice, but I feel like this blog is a pretty good measuring stick for my music motivation.
So, here's an outline of what I hope to accomplish over the next 3 months:
- A song posted to the Glynn G.M. YouTube page every Sunday for the next 12 weeks. I had originally wanted it to be on Saturdays, but it's actually going to be much easier to write, record, and post on Sundays.
- 3 singles with A and B sides recorded and released online with Oh Girl. A side is a written song, B side is an improv song. Released end of March, April, and May.
- 1 show with Oh Girl every month. March 12th and April 30th are already booked at Clancy's; we just need to get rolling on May.
- 1 (or 2) open mics a month to play my solo acoustic stuff. There's a really good scene coming out of open mics in Orange County, and I need to make an effort to be a part of it.
These four goals are going to be solid measuring sticks of my dedication to growing as a musician. And I'm happy to have 2 goals each for the projects I've got going: as a solo artist and with Oh Girl. Now it's just a matter of putting the work in, constantly pushing myself to become a better artist, and having a lot of fun.
Small steps towards my goals. I know I can do this.
