The final piece to our puzzle is box 5. I'm not actually sure what scale this is. It's cool and hits the 6… which is the first scale that we have the does that! Hey, hey, hey If we place this box at the start of our scale, we have 1(root) - 2 - 4 [...]
We're rolling right along to box 4! Let's ask this question, though. When should I add a new box to work on? Well, for each person, that's a little different. I think you should be able to play the scale backward and forwards without much trouble at a certain bpm. Let's at say 95 bpm. Does that number hold any special value? Hell, no.

Growing up, I knew the name of every single member of my favorite bands. I could have told you about their favorite movie and what their sign was. The band was a family, and I was a second cousin in my mind. There was something sacred about that. Now I've been playing around for a [...]

What a peculiar year. I have a feeling we will look back at this year as the year that showed us who we were. It seemed like we had nothing but time to work on (I hate this phrase) our quarantine album. But most of my "progress" came at the end of the year for [...]
It's a friendly, fun way to get those creative juices flowing. It's also very quick and frees you up from the inventive damn that can inhibit us. It has the potential to hurt some ego, but we must remember that either way, you are winning!
Last week I ran into "the wall of china of getting stuff done." I lost all of my drive and zest for progression. Don't get me wrong; none of my anxiety left me. But I couldn't for the life of me get anything I needed to get done. Well, I put on my big boy [...]
I feel like drummers get this concept more than anyone else. Can you imagine putting your drumset up every day?! At that point, I wouldn't be a drummer—too much work.
