On to other news. I’ve been taking vocal lessons over the past year or so. At this point, I’m ready to start my own band. I put up an ad on Craigslist and was contacted by a drummer. I checked out her website and emailed her back. Apparently she requires a payment of $50 per gig and $20 per practice. No thanks. I was also contacted by a member of a band that is looking for a singer called A Race Called Man. I liked what I heard, so I emailed him back. So, I have been working on a few tasks to get a demo to him. I am currently writing a song. I have the music done and the lyrics and melody are 75% finished. I hope to have it finished in the next week. I am also planning on recording me singing a few covers as well. To help me achieve this, I went to the Apple store and bought a Blue Yeti Pro microphone. So far this thing is pretty kick ass. It is so sensitive, that it picks up ambient sound in the other rooms of my condo. So, I built a small sound isolation box out of some foam in the recycle box at work. I found that someone is already making something similar and they cost $150! Mine cost me nothing! Granted, mine is not made with the pyramid shaped acoustical foam that they use in studios, but it did help. I will be posting some recordings soon. My allergies have been fierce the last few weeks, so my sinuses and throat have not been playing well with my desire to sing. Bah!
