Well folks... With all the horrible things going on in the world right now, I figured I'd dwell in some rare positivity.
It's going on nearly 18 months now and a lot of us have been home from the office for the duration of that time. How did you spend your time in lockdown? Did you develop a new skill? Start collecting coins or stamps? Maybe you learned to play a new instrument?
As for me, I spent this time bonding with my two young children. I also learned woodworking, and have been building electric guitars in my spare time, each more complicated than the last. I've also parleyed that hobby in to a small business selling guitars, guitar hardware, and buying/selling used and vintage amps. I've also been playing a lot of guitar, improving my skills markedly for the first time in decades.
My squeeze and baby mama has been honing her chops on the bass, and is developing in to a hell of a skilled player. Just two years on the instrument this month, and she's landed a gig with an 11 piece group that does Motown, soul, and R&B. Coming soon to a gin joint or private party near you.
