Dave Mustaine: "..it's not about volume, it's about tone.." Orchestra: "yes yes yes!"

My tone has evolved so much throughout the years, I'm positive that at this point it purely depends on serving the song, like, what does the song need. Which means I won't ever necessarily have a specific "tone" other than the actual playing style in my fingers, and then certain characteristics I think universally work well with anything I want to do such as reverb, overdrive, whatever, but other than that it's really all about the song ๐Ÿ’ฏ

The more I go down the meditation ๐Ÿฐ hole the more I feel stupid for not having done it seriously since my childhood. Outside of just the obvious of meditation lowering background stressors, it's great to cultivate a sort of calmness that allows you the quiet space necessary to really hear your intuition.
I value speed above a lot of things, especially when I start thinking about how vital it is to business but it's becoming more apparent how precious it is to be able to slow down as well. Those two seemingly opposing views may have been a cause for friction in my life just only a few months ago but I'm starting to see that, put together, they create a beautiful juxtaposition ๐ŸŒน

Over the weekend, my brother texted me asking if I wanted to jam out to a song he wrote on bass and I said "fuck yeah." Then I made him schedule a specific day and time to do said jam because I'm totally obsessed with routines+rituals and how freakishly effective they are for optimizing a person's day for maximum efficiency. Which stems from my deep hatred for only having 24 hrs in the day, an extremely finite amount of time if you really think about it. I mean shit, other planets have longer days than us. Why the fuck do I only get 24 hours?? That's not enough time. And I gotta spend 5-8 of those asleep or else my cognitive abilities are fucked??? Comon' now! And THAT hatred is a symptom of my deep obsession with cultivating an identity where I only do and believe that in which moves me closer to my goals which means I absolutely have to utilize my time correctly to a T, and now this random fucking rant has turn into a big ass run on sentence so with out further a due: enjoy xoxoxo โค๏ธfrom @adrianaraffa and @jawn_chalz

OH and P.S this shit is so #mastodon, no? #flyaf

Remember that split screen sneak peek I showed you yesterday? Well the end result is Live on YouTube right now! Link in the bio ๐Ÿ˜˜

Spent all day yesterday working on some awesome stuff for you guys. Sneak peek??? I think so. Take a look ๐ŸŽธ ๐Ÿ‘€

Yesterday I spent literally 8 hours trying to produce a song I heard in my head but could not figure out once I started to go into the actual mechanics of programming it. I found this amazing Orchestra Staccato string sample that I desperately wanted to use but the tempo was some weird fraction of a number and whenever I went to program the drums I heard in my head, it just would not line up. I was very frustrated for most of the day. To the point where I wanted to punch myself in the face, #nojoke .

But I refused to give up. It's part of my identity to find a way not an excuse. It would have been EASY to just drop it but there is nothing in the identity that I have CHOSEN that says take the easy way. So today, I got up at my usual schedule of 6am and started working. The more I failed at it the closer I came to an answer. Finally it hit me. I wasn't going to be able to program drums. I was going to have to actually play/record something that was going to give me the sort of Tribal sound I wanted. I went from room to room, hitting every surface. Trying to emulate drums but to no avail until I remembered, "Hey, my brother has some percussive instruments". So I drove to the family house and I tried every single one in every fashion. With my hands, with a stick, open palms, fisted knuckles, hitting from the rim, the corners, trying the top, the bottom, in the middle, I did this for a good while until I got something of satisfaction. Now it was time to record.

Percussive instruments are murder on the hands+back. And you know what's even more frustrating; having obscure sounds pop up in the background. Everything from my father slamming doors close to Maya, our family dog, barking up a storm. But after a couple of hours, I got what I wanted. Maybe not as crisp as if I programmed them, but I got it. And that's what this post is about. Finding a way, NOT an excuse. I demand success. So if you ever feel like giving up because it's hard or you can't figure it out or maybe you're feeling lazy..come back to this long ass post for inspiration to keep working. As cliche as it sounds, if there's a will there's a way. You've got the will. So find a way. Fuck excuses ๐Ÿ–•

If you look closely, you can see the little beads of sweat running down my face ๐Ÿ’ฆ. It's fucking hot in this bitch. It's either the candles I'm using to light up my bedroom or this fucking performance ๐Ÿ”ฅ

One of the most interesting things about having a lifetime ambition is being so hyper aware that as time moves on I'm going to move the target so ferociously from what I originally thought I was aiming at that I don't think I'll ever really feel like I hit it in the first place. As I grow and change as a person, move to different points of my life, different points of the narrative I choose to create, everything will change. Including what I'm aiming for ๐ŸŽฏ

If I'm not making music in someway, shape or form, I'm probably dead ๐Ÿ’€
P.S idk why but this totally reminds me of some Metroid Prime shit or something
