What a bummer!

Jesse, an online friend that's been following my musical efforts, had contacted me some time ago about the possibility of performing for his stake's youth conference this summer. What an exciting opportunity! I've been wanting to perform that kind of show for years and years. He's also the same guy that got me the gig with the Liahona Academy last fall.

So where's the bummer? The timing. Their conference is the same weekend that my family (Jodi and both kids) are coming back from six weeks in Tucson. I can't do a gig that same time. I wanna be there to welcome them home!

In reality, it was a long shot anyway. Their youth conference is in Missouri, and making travel arrangements would have been difficult at best.


But it was fun to think about, and maybe some other year. Thanks for all the effort you've given me, Jesse. It's fans like you that really give an artist encouragement!

On another note, I did get a bit of recording done last night, the first I've done in a long time. I put some string parts down on "Today and Yesterday". I'm very glad I'm not doing a guitar solo on that one. All the tonicizations and key borrowing would make soloing a nightmare!

So, all I need on that one is the real drum parts, and the lead and harmony vocals. It's almost done!
