• Here we go. Apple Silicon inside.

  • Still stoked that my new song is now on Spotify and other music services. It’s positive and with catchy 🎸 lines. Listen and follow, if you like it for more songs I’m working on.

  • 🎵My latest song is now also available in Spotify and Apple Music. Listen, like and follow please, if you use these services. 🎸

  • See me play the 🎸solo of Seven Years and Seven Months. The song will be out on music platforms on June 30. The full song is available in other locations for now. I did later notice that i played the first phrase not as in the original 🤦🏻‍♂️. Well, I was playing live. 🎵

  • UPS 9am: package will arrive tomorrow Canada Post 9am: Package will arrive today UPS 11am: Ding. Here’s your package. Canada Post 9pm: 🦗 🦗

    With all the technology, delivery notifications are still a mystery.

  • After installing, the beta of macOS 11.0 (Big Sur) decided to show me notifications. It showed notification (from different apps) that went as far back as 2017. This is both impressive and disturbing at the same time. I didn’t know notifications persisted. And for so long.

  • Apple Service Status page is… unavailable. Where’s the status page for the status page

  • My new song’s video is premiering on YouTube now. Join in. www.youtube.com/watch

  • The song will also be available on other platforms (like Spotify/Apple Music) on June 30th and I hope to release a lyrics video before that. In the meantime, this Bandcamp link is the only place it’s available and you can listen to it there. 🎵🎸

  • 🎵 NEW MUSIC 🚨 My song “Seven Years and Seven Months” is out on Bandcamp now. The song is a light and bright pop-rock, with some jazzy harmony, dedicated to my daughter. It’s also a good day to support musicians on the platform today, as they waive their fees this Friday.

  • 🐕 Sparky got groomed yesterday. I could barely recognize him as I was picking him up. Luckily, he did recognize me, so I knew it was him ;)

  • A new original song is coming soon. It’s quite different from my regular writing, and it’s dedicated to my daughter.

  • It’s 🏳️‍🌈 month. If you use an iPhone and want to add some pride-related spice to your photos, our app Socialite, has free pride frames and stickers, among other free content. No cost at all.

  • Pleasant weather in the backyard today.

  • The new normal

  • My parody cover of John Lennon’s Imagine, called “Imagine, there’s no Facebook” has just reached 1000 views on YouTube, the second of my videos to do so. Axel F cover is looking forward to be the third.

  • Pink Floyd are now streaming their fantastic 1994 Pulse concert on YouTube. Don’t miss, if you’re a fan. www.youtube.com/watch

  • My daughter made this minion out of a toilet paper roll by looking at her minion stuffy. It’s painted all around and on the inside. Really crafty.

  • I’m making real progress with studying Dream Theater’s Erotomania on 🎸. It’s crazy hard in some parts. I first started it maybe 20 years ago but I’m back at it now that my technique got better. How could Petrucci write these parts is beyond me. youtu.be/j0G5r-89G…

  • Bandcamp helps supporting musicians today

    If you’re buying music, especially from less mainstream artists, Bandcamp (a site that allows bands to host and sell their music), has a “promotion” today where it doesn’t collect fees and all proceeds go to the artists. While I have my own music published there and elsewhere, I don’t depend on music for my income. At least not yet.

    So head over to Bandcamp and find music there. The site is currently struggling under heavy load, so that’s a good sign.

  • It’s cool to see all the updates from Apple to the smaller devices. Now, what about the iMac and iMac Pro? These are the workhorses.

  • During setup of the 🎸 I brought the bridge lower, the neck relief and action lower as advised too and oh my god, the strings are so low now. And it still works. Now I need to adjust my playing to the lower action.

  • Oh, this was quick and easy, now that I had the right tool. Not, setting it up.

  • Starting my attempt to replace the truss rod nut on my guitar. Wish me luck.

  • 🎵 I have the first music release as a solo artist. It’s a guitar-based cover of Axel F, the theme music from Beverly Hills Cop. All links to listen to it are here. I’ll also appreciate a follow on the music and social services, as more music is to come, including originals. 🎸
