#11

This. I wanted to learn canon rock, get my back fixed so I could work out again, and write some cool riffs for my band. I haven't accomplished anything and school stars on wednesday.

I have learnt how to waste a summer
Quote by St.Loony

I learned a lot of basic music theory. I played a gig with my band. I improved my singing a lot even though I'm still not too great at it. I read 5 novels for my English AP class. Hung out with my girlfriend a lot. Improved my fingerstyle picking for playing bass.

Damn, my summer was actually pretty productive!

Ehh, nothing really.

I can really only say that I got used to playing pinch harmonics, which is a basic thing so now I'm depressed again

I was used to my mum cooking all my food

A bunch of my friends came over (some on different days than others) and I recorded about 8 songs in total. I learned a whole lot, like how to use compression, reverb and mic placement to make songs sound sick. I have yet to learn how to master properly. In good time I suppose.

In terms of guitar I've been picking a hell of a lot cleaner, faster and actually gotten away from the mindless shred stuff you see on most Youtube videos and discovered melody.
In other terms I earnt about £800, became closer to good friends and made new ones, discovered a more positive outlook on life and that's about it.

#37
i really accomplished nothing because i was working all summer, but i managed to score a few thousand $$$$ from work so ill probably use a chunk of that for gear/new guitars.

I learned a few songs on my guitar
But yet i dont feel like i got better at all

I learned a few new tricks on my skateboard
but i also don't feel like i skated as much as i could have

I hung out with my girlfriend and my friends a lot
i had fun hanging with my girlfriend, we saw dark knight, went to new york, went out to eat and some other great stuff
but most of the time we/I chilled with our friends we didn't do ANYTHING

I went to a few parties, got in trouble with the cops, had some fires, got a job and a bunch of other stuff

So i guess my summer wasn't as bad as i thought
