Welcome to the Good Share podcast. This is the first of many episodes... well this isn't really a full episode. Its more like a quick trailer or just a brief explanation of what you can expect from this podcast. We more or less decided to do this for the fun of it, and share our everyday conversations with the rest of the inter-webs. We hope you might find some enjoyment and amusement with our back and forth. We will be talking about anything and everything. Those who know us, can also expect to hear quite a bit about the music industry and music production. Thanks for hangin with us and hope to see you back soon!

Ryan and Ice finally get back together and recap the last 9 months of no podcasting. They also discuss how they're growing into 2023 with new goals and mindsets. As well as tease about a new collaborative musical project. Go ahead and get your listen on!
We pickup with singing parts in your head, and then translating it to the fingers or limbs. Converting a musical part that is simply a complied piece in your head to a physical expression is much more difficult than you might think. It is really amazing how easy it is to think of a complex, but elegant part, just to find out how hard it is to replicate physically. This technique is a very good way to level up your musical skill. Plus I find that it really helps me be a better listener. Ice and I both believe that listening to what is happening around you is at least 90% of what it means to make music. It's easy to forget, or not even realize that making music is a group effort (not for all, solo artist for example). Obviously making good musical choices are very important, as is listening to what others are “saying” and understanding the musical conversation happening around you. Without good listening skills, how can you hear the questions asked? Simple, you can't. We can all be better listeners. Listening is not merely hearing something. It is hearing it, understanding it, then choosing a proper response…. if needed.
We pick up where we left off from the last episode. At this point we are discussing finding new ways to play similar patterns and parts from a different prospective. These types of techniques can be hard at first, but of course with enough practice and pushing past what feels uncomfortable, you can find yourself leveling up your skill. Ice calls this the headroom concept. I really like this idea! We also hit a few pet peeves.
