Some weeks ago I posted about how I try to keep myself busy and alive when I’m on the road for training, consulting, and speaking gigs. One of the things I had mentioned was about my new little "traveller" guitar and Tascam "guitar trainer" (see the post for links and pics). Those two things are awesome!
Last month I’ve spent a week in Eugene, OR, and on the evenings I was playing guitar for about 2 hours, practicing a song by Joe Satriani, Always with me, Always with you. In one of my training gigs, fellow former VFP MVP, Rick Bean, gave me a DVD with guitar lessons of how to play some of Satriani’s tunes, so I used it to relearn this song (I used to play some parts of it many years ago…).
So now I’m bringing the two toys to the office everyday, so that I can play guitar for about 30 minutes. This has been great! It helps a lot keeping up with my chops, and giving my brains a break for a change.
A few weeks ago my friend Milton captured a few minutes of one of my lunch breaks while I was playing the Satriani tune. Check it out! The funny part of it was when my 7-year old daughter saw the video on youtube and went bananas through the house, yelling to some of her friends: "my daddy is on youtube, my daddy is on youtube! He’s going to be famous and millionaire!". So cute. =:-D
