Day 1 audio link-click here for audio
I have a confession! I will be doing three challenges my friends. One is the 'JDC' and the other two are the 'JMC' and the 'JGC.' What are you talking about Matt i hear you say? Well, i have decided that after i complete my 'JDC' hour i will then split another hour in half and do my own mandolin half hour challenge followed by a guitar challenge also! I have recently had the flame reignited on my guitar after many years of neglect and it feels amazing to be back on it again with fresh new goals.
I have decided that I don't wish to be the best player in the entire universe, rather I would like to learn songs and sing with friends around the open fire on a chilly night. As for my mandolin playing, I really need to learn all of the different chords and would love to be able to play a few fast country phrases and one day play a country music festival ripping up the fret board whilst wearing my shiny leather boots and hat.
Sound like fun? Well it sure does to me. I love a bit of variety and that is what I shall be doing. I also need to keep that musical and cultural balance of being an Australian that plays an Arabic instrument as a career.
Enjoy Day 1 drummers, play, dream, create.
