I've set some music related resolutions for this year. My goals are:

  • Know the 5 minor pentatonic scale positions (I only know 2 now)

  • Write and record at least 12 songs (1 per month)
  • What are your musical goals for the coming year?

    Get my Grade 8.

    Get on stage more.

    That'll do, I think.

    1) Learn music theory. I know a little, but not much. It's about time I learned more. I've never been that interested before, but now I am. And I actually already started a few days ago, so I'll follow through.

    2) Learn jazz. This is vague, I know, but I don't know much about it in terms of how to play it and the theory behind it all.

    Those two kind of go together anyway, so that's good.

    There are other music resolutions I'd like to make, but they're not all that important so I'll just concentrate on the other two.

    Put more time into improving my keyboard skills.

    Get myself back on stage (the Gypsy jazz revival is just around the corner, I know it! :) )

    Get serious about composing, finish at least one orchestral piece.

    1. Read Noteboat's theory book as soon as I get off meds.
    2. Learn some single note playing, like leads, etc.
    3. Learn some harder rock songs than the soft/pop-rock lineup I know now.

    - Invent a secret chord voicing that no one can play
    - discover a secret note that no one knows about
    - never practice
    - write one killer song that will take over the music world and be played in every elevator on the earth
