Well I couldn't put it off much longer...


So tonight, after work, I went out with my kit




Found a spot, tuned up and recorded the first thing I played, which turned out to be the start of a song I am writing. When finished, and recorded in the Rock Shed, it will be the greatest power ballad in Rock (Chef) history. It will!


I know the sound is rubbish (as you can see my amplifier that I carry around with me is very small) and the playing probably isn't much better, but you asked for it! Don't blame me!


Here it is...

EEEEEEEEKKKKKKK!

YAY ROCK CHEF!!!!!

I love it! You totally DO rock!

Oh man, I'm so excited that I'm actually squealing and stomping my feet!

That was worth the wait :)

Teresa said...

Ah...I see my threats worked! Yay!!

Seriously, I LOVED it. You are fantastic! It WAS worth the wait...even though it was WAY too much fun to rag on you about it...ah...now we need one of you singing...yah...I can nag on you about that now. LOL! Just kidding!

That was great and if you ever make a CD...I WANT ONE!!!

P.S.-Thank-you!

terri said...

AWESOME! You sounded GREAT! And since throwing virual panties seems rather inappropriate, I'm throwing virtual chocolate chip cookies! LOVED IT!

Jack and Jill said...

Chief Rock Chef? More like Chief Rock STAR!!

Awesome!

James said...

Jimi!

Speedcat Hollydale said...

Bravo! Bravo!!!

Train Wreck said...

Hello I just came over because I love Terri! So if she thinks you are awesome, you probably are! I loved your music! And your V blogs are great! Keep it up! Soon you will be on the cover of Rolling Stone!!

Chief Rock Chef said...

Ali - Thanks - so glad you enjoyed it.

Teresa - Yes, your threats worked :-) Singing? As the saying goes, be careful what you wish for...

Terri - Throwing virtual choc chip cookies sounds great.

Jack and Jill - Thank you!

James - But I won't be setting fire to my guitars very soon.

Speedcat - Thank you, thank you!

Train wreck - Isn't Terri great? Thanks for visiting and glad you enjoyed it.

jenelle said...

well worth the wait. can tell that you love what you are doing as well.

thanks for the tidbit and you need to realize what you've started. this is likely only going create requests for more VLOG posts of your music ;)

Chief Rock Chef said...

Jenelle - Thanks! And you seem to be right - Teresa has already mentioned singing, which I am awful at. It would have to be a silly song...

Ali said...

You should do a singing vlog of the "My Ears are Full of Tears" song!!! Yes! Do it! Please?

Chief Rock Chef said...

Ali - Funny, that is the one that sprang to mind! I will have to find it...

Chief Rock Chef said...

Found it!

Jen said...

I could totally sit and listen to you play that song all day! Absolutely.


***lit lighter waves through air***

Ali said...

Oh man, you have to do it! It would bring me SUCH joy!

And then you have to make me a copy of it and send it to me!

Um, I'm not being too demanding, am I? :)

Chief Rock Chef said...

Jen - Really? Thanks! Hm, looks like I will have to work on it and post a full audio version...

Chief Rock Chef said...

Ali - Of course, you do realise that this song is a country and western song and it might ruin my credibility. I might have to choose a new name! Suggestions welcome...

Ali said...

*gasp*

You would change the name of such a masterpiece?

Well, I never...

Chief Rock Chef said...

Ali - I meant a new name for myself!

Ali said...

Oh, lol!

Hmm, I'm thinking :)

mr zig said...

Dude!!!! freaking awesome! Loved everything about that post... saaaaweeeet! (that little amp does a pretty good job! - Gonna havta get me one of those!)

Mike said...

Wow! That's awesome man! I always wanted to learn how to play the guitar, but never really got around to it. Maybe I'll have to make the time after all. But yeah... great job!

Chief Rock Chef said...

Ali - Oh dear...

Zig - Glad you liked it. If you do get one of these amps, make sure you get the stack rather than the smaller one that they also do.

Mike - You really should learn - even cheap guitars are really good these days. If you can master things like Guitar Hero, you can play guitar!

Alyssa said...

So many comments already, but here are my two cents:

1) AWESOME

2) Where's the singing: :)
