Here’s a list of some helpful things to make travel a little less crazy.
After some technical issues, I have managed to do another lesson. Here’s some ideas on how to learn and use the 5 positions of the Blues Scale. It’s a great scale to know and fun to play. There’s so many uses for it and it’s used in many different genres. I hope you enjoy this one and get something out of it. Pass it along to anyone you know that can benefit from it and spread the love.
Well, I finally made it to see my friend Francois and hang out in good old Nantes. It was good to see him and to explore a new place. It’s yet another nice french city with much to see and drool over, including the coolest Carousel and giant robot elephant I’ve ever seen (yes James, a GIANT elephant), and the most deadly sculpture. We stayed in his parents place/museum in the countryside an hour and a half drive outside of Nantes for the first 2 nights and wow, what a place they have. More boat oriented stuff than any museum I’ve ever been in, and super cool. What a nice family and all the friends I met were great, even if I couldn’t understand them ;) I then spent the last night at his uncles places 20 minutes out of Nantes and met Francois’ dog. I swear that dog has a secret stash of cocaine somewhere…so much energy, it can’t be normal. Anyway, after an epic french translation fail, I left all my clothes in the first house so I was a little stinky on my final day, but I think the locals just though I was carrying some of the fine local cheeses in my bag so no one seemed to mind. I did a little sightseeing and there’s a great idea in Nantes called Le Ligne Verte, which is a green line painted on the ground that goes all around the city for the tourists to follow, so I did just that. Then I helped out in my friends new barber shop, rearranging things and generally making the place more awesome than it was already, haha. All in all, it was a great 4 days away and only and hour or so flight from Lyon. I love living in Europe, it’s so easy to travel even though I did almost miss both flights :) Good times Nantes, I will be back, oh yes, I will be.
What a great band and a great concert. These guys were a so huge. Such great song and groove. Zach is a great frontman and I love watching this insanely huge moshpit going completely mental. I can only imagine the feeling playing a concert like that! GO RAGE!!
Here is a great video showing you Lyon, the place i’ve been living more just over 2 years now. It’s such a beautiful little city and has so much to offer. I’m still getting use to living in another country but I really love it here. It’s an inspiring place to be. http://vimeo.com/98165420
