Regarding 'blocks', I presume that the finishing of something is generally more the problem than the starting of something (?)

It is for me.....I have a music project that I thought was finished a year ago and was maturing so to speak.  Opened it up to see how its tasting only to discover it did not need more time but more work so Im currently throwing the kitchen sink at it.  Will it improve? Perhaps it was already all it could be.  And so it goes.

I agree with Julio that it can be harder to finish a project than to start one.  When you're at the project's beginning, there is a blank slate feeling that the project can be open to all kinds of possibilities.  When you reach the home stretch, what you've created before can start to narrow your options.  This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as for me it helps keep the project focused, so that it is not just a collection of random pieces.

I'm pretty fortunate in that I'm able to get projects finished. While the work-in-progress is the learning process in itself, I'm sufficiently goal oriented to see the completion of a project as the primary thing. This isn't because I'm super disciplined or anything like that, more that i was a bit of a slacker with music when I was younger and now I take it far more seriously.

My current dram.....lots of coconut and vanilla.  Glenmorangie in body but much superior on all other counts

Please do Mike...you and your fellow writers have great taste in single malts.  Look forward to it!

Beautiful indeed.

I forgot to report in here about some very nice single malts I enjoyed in Boston at a convention this summer. Must dig through Facebook to find photos and details.

Just back from a short break in Highland Perthshire where I visited this place...........



The smallest distillery in Scotland where everything is hand made by the three distillery workers.

I purchased this........



and thereafter partook of said amber nectar of the gods, at my holiday place, looking out over this landscape one afternoon in the late summer sun....



Very pleasant indeed.


PS Julio .....this dram also tasted wonderful in the distillery tasting room  ;) 8)

Well I have only been here since Dec 2013 but have thoroughly enjoyed the posts here. Ambient music has really taken over my life, well okay, my listening this past 3 years or so. Thus it is highly appropriate I have found this place.

My own music has always been guitar orientated rock with side projects of African/Scottish/instrumental concepts. However I am being inspired by listening to some stunning ambient music recently and my studio will be getting fired up again over the winter months for some deep ambient research and playing. Hopefully this guitarist/Djembe player will be picking up some tips from the wealth of experience and musicianship on here  :D
