Like many people, I get (probably overly)excited about making goals and plans for this next year. I have always been the kind of person who dreams big, and that has seeped into my resolutions year after year. I guess that’s okay though. I would rather shoot too high and fall a little short than not set any goals at all. I have been thinking about what goals I want to set for 2015 for about 4 months now, and I am more and more sure that this is what I should do.
For 2015, I am committing myself to partake in the 52 Project. What this will mean for me is that every week for the entire year, I will write a new song. However, on the 3rd week of each month, instead of writing a new song, I will learn a new cover (and post a video of it for you guys on the last Saturday of each month). I have been thinking about all the practical little elements of this, and although it will be a huge challenge, I believe it is one I can stick to. I will need your help though! Feel free to send me any ideas or prompts for songs, or songs you would like to hear me cover. I will do my best to work them into this project! And if your idea/prompt is used, I will make a special video for you! <3
At the beginning of each month, I will give you all a little update and let you know how the project is going. You will get the song titles each month, and little stories about some of the songs. Most excitingly though, starting in March, you will get monthly videos of some of my new original songs. My plan as of now, is that at least one week a month, I will write a song on an instrument other than guitar (i.e. Ukulele, Piano, Mandolin). So, some interesting things are bound to happen. I am really stoked about starting this, and I hope you guys are excited too!
Happy New Year! I wish you all the very best!!
