|Must learn some Harry Connick Jr. by my 6pm gig tomorrow (Sunday) sans piano or big band (neither of which the client has on hand, and neither of which will fit into my Jeep.) I'm not sure what that's going to sound like on a guitar, but when I figure it out, I'll let you know.
Speaking of new music, I've been on an Elton John kick, which I haven't done since... oh, senior year of high school? Primarily on piano. I'm also trying to learn requested "I Don't Want to Wait" by Paula Cole; it sounds fantastic on a piano, but I'm working out the translation to guitar, again, for portability's sake. That stupid piano just won't fit in the Jeep (especially alongside the new sound system I just purchased!), and I'm afraid the wheels will break off if I try to tow it.
On a related note, my weekly Senor Patron gig is moving from Fridays at lunch to Wednesday nights effective next week, so I ought to see a much better crowd (and a slightly higher paycheck.) I'd still like to find a lunch gig closer to the music school for branding purposes. Much like I'd like to create a custom database for the school, update the websites for the school and church, and implement about fifty neat-o ideas I stole on Pinterest.
Alas, I'm too busy trying to get enrollments back up over 245. At least I'm writing. And learning new music. And gigging. Especially that last one, because it pays the bills, seeing as how enrollments are so ridiculously low. Pardon me while I go play with my new sound system.
Did I mention I got a new sound system?
