November 3rd, 2009
After what has been, even for me, a long hiatus with no new music, hope may be alive for the small but dedicated constituency that follows my music. 🙂
As I have slowly worked myself back into playing music, forcing a regular schedule of it into my life with my band and with my podcasts, I’m trying to do a little more. One of my goals for 2009 was to write and record a new album.
Seeing as how 2009 (and my 10th year playing guitar) is coming to a close, I have little time to do that album, and I had given up any realistic odds of it’s happening — until today. Phil Taylor contacted me with a kind of “motivate each other” proposition, where we would simultaneously produce albums — kind of keep each other accountable.
Since this works right into my goal for the year, I told him our deadline would be January 1, 2010.
Now, there’s no way I will have time for full productions with drums and whatnot, so I am only pushing myself to write at least a dozen songs, and record them with me singing along with the guitar. I may do more if I get motivated, but since I would prefer to master the album once it is complete, it’s unlikely.
Anyway, I’ve set up the project page on my website, and you can keep tabs on it here: http://tharp.me/8
