I promised I would update my blog with some producer tips. Not sure how many tips there will be in the series, but here is number one…
Producer Tip #1: Learn another instrument, even if it’s a shaker, and use it to spark ideas, or add to your tracks
[Note, most of my tracks have a shaker in them!!]
Oh My! After about almost 2 yrs on the market, nearly 100 viewings [edit: my wife says it’s about 50!], we have finally exchanged contracts!!
This has been the longest trial of my life! But not just one that affected me. I think it was hardest for my family, and I’d still have to be positive whilst it didn’t feel like we were moving at all. “It’ll all happen in God’s time” was one of my most overused phrases during this time, but most of the time I just didn’t comprehend what his timing was. Either that, or didn’t want to accept that many times throughout scripture He would bring people to the end of themselves, when they can no longer trust in the things they can see, before performing a miracle…
The term “kairos” is used in theology to describe the qualitative form of time. In rhetoric kairos is “a passing instant when an opening appears which must be driven through with force if success is to be achieved.” In the New Testament kairos means “the appointed time in the purpose of God”, the time when God acts (e.g. Mark 1.15, the kairos is fulfilled). It differs from the more usual word for time which is chronos (kronos). [via wikipedia]
Even after accepting the offer, it still seemed to take forever.
But through it all, I’ve learnt a lot about trusting God, and as we go into this new season of our lives, I’m excited for all the other stuff He is going to do on this journey of faith…
What a great pic, taken on my wife’s Nokia 5800…my HTC Touch Diamond is brilliant, but doesn’t have a flash so is useless in the dark (that’s why I need an HD2! see previous post)
It’s a incredibly specced beast of a phone, and it looks pretty slick!
I was considering going Android, but this has changed my mind. Now I just need T-Mobile to stock it!
So I can blog when mobile!!! Well in wi-fi range. But then I can turn my mobile into a wi-fi hot spot anyway (ask me how lol)
