Fitness Progress Check-In

Published 1 year ago

We are both working pretty hard to meet our goal of losing 15lbs+ by June 1st 2021. So of course this is gonna be the focus for a bit. But we can both tell that our talks are leaning slightly away from health oriented topics and back into our usual rhythm of conversation. Now that isn't to be confused with the ability for one, if not both of us getting excited about progress at some point and talking about it for over an hour is quite possible.

Stitch and Bitch - Part 3

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.

Stitch and Bitch - Part 2

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.

Stitch and Bitch - Part 1

This episode starts off with Ice calling in on his new Phonfreq by Solomon Designs. This microphone is a super cool one of a kind tool. We both believe it is a must have for your project studio. In this episode, we get a bit carried away and had to split it into 3 parts. We managed to get off topic and had a small rant about what it means to make music and find your voice. Hang in there, this has some cool stuff and funny moments.
