For Christmas, my mama and pops got me a ukulele. They got it on their recent trip to Hawaii. I thought it would be a lot easier to play than it is. I’ve played guitar for almost 6 years, but I have a lot to learn. The softer strumming, new chord fingerings and tuning… It’ll be fun though, and much more portable for travelling fun.
Right now in the musical world, I’m loving a couple things:
1) One Republic
2)Breezeblocks by Alt-J
Their album NATIVE just runs through me like fresh water. It moves me, lyrics and melodies and all. I can’t stay still while I listen to it, and it is my favourite thing to have going in my earbuds at the moment. I even have started to plan a music video I want to make for Counting Stars, however, there are so many good ones on that album, I don’t know which I will choose yet to work on.
I have a remix of Breezeblocks by Alt-J on my running playlist, but the original is my favourite. They have a bit more of a unique sound and Breezeblocks weaves voice and silence and beats in an intriguing way I think. I also like their song Bloodflood, it’s very mellow.
