semalam rasanya seperti diberi teguran sama sang pencipta, bahwa jangan abai terhadap kesehatan. tiba-tiba diberi rasa sakit kepala yang luar biasa menghentak, merengut di ubun-ubun. seperti dipukul godam berkali-kali. lebay? tentu saja tidak, karena saya yang rasa.
mungkin memang kodratnya barangkali, saat kesakitan rasa takut turut ikut menemani. bagaimana jika..? ah sudahlah, dari sini saya belajar, bahwa yang tiba-tiba datang tanpa persiapan itu memang mengerikan. jika dengan sakit seperti itu saja sudah membuat ciut, bagaimana jika yang datang tiba-tiba seperti itu adalah maut?
sungguh tak pernah bisa memastikan..
Today was a day of ups and downs. My @strymonengineering Volante came in the mail, and I spent quite a bit of the day playing with it. It’s incredible; easy to use, accurately reproduces analog sounds, and the head control buttons make it possible to dial in just about any kind of delay you could want.
Then my Bassman died. I was in the middle of playing and it faded out to silence. Now it only makes faint sounds when it’s turned up past 5, which would normally peel paint off the walls. Ups and downs. I’m selling a couple of things on my @reverb store (link in bio). The funds will probably be used to buy a new output transformer for the Bassman. DM me and I’ll give you a deal if you want to buy some of my crap.
If you’re discouraged because of God’s delay in answering your prayers, understand the delay is not a denial. Just because the answer or the miracle hasn’t come yet doesn’t mean God isn’t going to answer or that he’s forgotten you or that he doesn’t care about you. It simply means “not yet”!
Lately I have been learning so much about creativity and confidence. It’s really easy to have a bit of imposter syndrome (the worst right😣) and think you have to play like someone else to be an awesome guitar player. Like I feel like I used to always worry if I was “good enough” to be a real guitarist. But I’m starting to learn that the melodies and ideas in your own head are actually golden and unlike anyone else’s! Be confident that no matter where you are in your guitar journey, you have amazing things in your head to share!
