So here’s what we’re up to:
1) Rich and I are writing new songs, and doing all the things we need to do to get ready to record them (arranging, rehearsing, trying them out live.)
2) I’m releasing a rock guitar instruction book next year! Alfred Music Publishing is the publisher, and the book will be a great resource for many of you who’ve learned about me through my old guitar lesson videos on Mahalo. Stay tuned!
3) I’m translating a truly amazing Swedish e-book series on songwriting to English. Since the Swedes have brought us First Aid Kit, The Hives, Jorgen Elofsson (who wrote Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger”), and of course also ABBA, they’re a force to reckon with in pop and rock. The series should be released this fall. For any of you out there who have a passion for writing songs and want to get better at it, stay tuned for this series…
Many of you have asked me to post new guitar lesson videos. I don’t work with Mahalo anymore, but I plan to launch my own video lesson channel on YouTube this fall, once Rich and I have recorded new music, and I’ve completed a few more stages with my book projects. I thank all of you who have posted really nice comments on the lessons, and I truly appreciate those of you who took the time to visit this website to check out our music and post comments.
Have a great summer and be well!
