...from composing that is. I've realized I haven't written any full songs in a few months. It's not writer's block or anything (though I think some of it may be caused by a lot of stress and personal things). It's just that I've become frustrated with it. I used to maybe a write a song every 2 months and that built pressure on myself. I needed to get away from that. I'm a little tooorganized sometimes. The pressure is still there a little because I want nothing more than to someday record my songs on CD. And I know that's not gonna happen just sitting around dreaming about it. Lately I've been "exploring", going as deep as I can into the sound of a note..and then another..and then another. Blending colors and creating sceneries. It's enjoyable and refreshing trying new things on the bass. I've written phrases here and there and gotten a few ideas for songs. I don't know if I'm asking any questions here or expecting any answers from this thread, but I thought maybe there's a few of you that may be going through or have gone through something similar. And I'm hoping I'm not slowing down my progress by taking a break like this. In the meantime I am focusing a lot more (more than usual LOL) on my lessons and theory, learning new songs and stuff.
