Our friend Fred has been telling us for some time about the benefits of getting earbuds to use as sound monitors when we play. He said "they're a blessing and a curse!" But once you get used to them, you won't perform without them. We just didn't get it - until tonight.
Fred has a sound system that is used for small bands and when we plugged our guitars in and began playing through the system, we could hear everything. We could hear the parts that were right and we could hear the parts that were WRONG - thus the blessing and the curse. A few practices through these things and we'll know exactly what parts need work.
I've been singing a song with The Overalls for years and tonight when I had the earbuds in, I could tell I was singing flat. Not bad flat, but flat just the same. With that added attention, I was able to get it right. I'm ordering earbuds tomorrow for both Jilda and me.
We spent a great deal of time this morning going over our goals for the year to make sure we are on the same page. It's easier to reach a goal when we both are going in the same direction. We have both made writing and music a priority this year. We have been writing and performing for many years but in the past we seemed to lose focus and get sidetracked by the priorities of others. It is our goal and intention this year to move to the next level.
We are both excited.
