I have decided to start a blog, a guitar diary if you will, of my progress as a guitar player from being a TOTAL beginner to hopefully a legit musician. I will be posting every song that I learn through video, discussing troubles that I am sure will encounter, and of course talking about music in general.
Babes In Toyland

—Realeyes - Live At The CBGB's, 1992

Babes In Toyland performing “Realeyes” live at the 1992 CBGB’s in New York. From the 34-minute sixth track, “Fontanellette” of BIT’s 1993 EP, Painkillers.

This has to be one of my favorite versions of “Realeyes”, and Kat’s screaming is perfect here! Not to mention the perfection of the distortion. She sounds so restricted and stressed out in the best way possible - and to me, it goes with the mood of the song and it’s lyrics. That last belt gave me goosebumps, I swear. I love her yells and screeches. Anyway, love ya, Kat! I hope they perform this when they get “reunionize” (in Kat’s words).

By the way, I went through hell and back to upload this to Tumblr. It’s personally from my physical copy of my Painkillers CD (I don’t do that digital shit), and it is hell to upload songs from your music library. I’ve been trying to do this for months. So, enjoy! ♡

Babes in Toyland - Real Eyes (1992, DC)

I love this song. Kat’s vocals are lower in this video versus the album, but it’s still good. I really like the bass lines - it fills the in-betweens well, which is exactly why I want a bassist in my band now haha 

Who actually does play in her robe and matching sleep mask haha

Yesterday it was put into perspective that my progression has become minuscule because of my lack of commitment. As it was told me, “you need to become obsessed with playing.” On some level, I was, but as of lately, not so much. So here’s my plan starting today. All I’m asking of myself is to devote an hour a day, five times a week. The key is consistency. I’m not trying to be the best guitar player in the world. I just want to be able to play music in my own band well.
