Sometimes that process of thinking about things can be as much of a deterrent to progress as anything else.

 

You see it all of the time, that the biggest barrier to creativity is yourself.  Too much thinking about stuff, not enough doing.  Fear of doing something that doesn't "measure up", too  much worrying about quality control, when you have no output over which to QA check! Obsessing over the gear you "might" need, when you probably have more resource in your laptop than the Beatles had when they recorded Sergeant Pepper.

 

I guess I have been there, and that's been causing procrastination.

 

Here's a weird thing.  I cut my finger quite badly which meant I couldn't play guitar, and suddenly when physically stopped from being able to play I had a load of ideas.

 

As soon as I could play again I was recording and came up with something that I am really pleased with.  It was recorded simply, with all existing kit, and it was so much fun.  Great to be in that immersive space, where time disappears as I chase the sound I want.  I think this song sets the direction for the EP.

 

We are in lockdown for Covid-19 in the UK, and I suppose that has also affected things.  I am working from home and probably more busy than normal, but we are taking local walks every day, and I am seeing things in my neighbourhood that I have never noticed before.  We have found lanes, fields, alleyways and places that we didn't know existed, and that opens your mind to what is all at our fingertips.

 

Looking forward...
