May 10, 2017 - Making Waitresses Cry
So I stayed up all night last night at Shari's working. I got a lot of work done, don't get me wrong, but it was rough. I finished editing the first video in a series that I am going to put out soon. It's called Anything Uke Can Do. In this series, I take a video of someone who is teaching a guitar lick in a particular style on Youtube, and I play the exact same thing on the Ukulele. I think it'll be a good series if I can get it to take off. Not sure if it will take off or not, it is more of a teaching style video than story-type content like we are mainly planning for Dunlevy Family Band. But it does help my playing a ton, and it could help someone else's.
I was very depressed working late into the night last night. I really miss my family. My waitress was awesome though...she kept all my glasses full and even gave me a free huge plate of garlic bread after the first one I ordered tasted awful. She then asked about what I was working on, I told her and she asked me to play her a song. I played Been Too Long and I guess it struck a nerve. She started tearing up. Man I needed that reaction. It made me feel like this is all going to be worth it one day.
