    Joined a (very) newly started gospel choir as bassist. I've been amazed by gospel ever since I first played it some 3 months ago.
    We're gonna have our first gig next thursday, opening for one of the biggest names in Swedish gospel. Better get back to practicing :lol:

    Sexy Time With Keith - YouTube (Might not be safe for work due to mild language)

    Because we made this video at work of me. I have the nickname "Sexy Keith".

    Customers and coworkers ,even the owners at work call me "Sexy keith" now.

    Makes me happy.

    Made progress with a group of kids I teach. A couple of them kept constantly griping at each other, no matter how much I told them to just ignore each other. One of them was being quite mean to the other who is much newer to the group so has much less playing experience. Telling them off didn't seem to help. The community centre had some hand outs to do with rights and responsibilities in attending the club, with a declaration of agreement and bit at the bottom to sign. All of the kids agreed with each point on it and all of us happily signed it, agreeing that we wanted a good, fun learning environment. They all behaved nicely toward each other today. Much more enjoyable for all involved!

    I just got laid off of job.

    What is it doing in this thread? Because the future is now looking better that way. I was planning to leave this job at the beginning of summer to get back to school next fall, its still my plan but I'll maybe have to work a bit in-between.

    Goodbye ore mining, hello profesionnal teaching career!

    Had a great night of lessons: ear training which seemed to be enjoyed and turned into a game of call my bluff while transcribing the melody as a group, followed by chord construction, Black Sabbath, slides and two hand tapping. Another excellent end to a rubbish day.

    Awesome! I find getting kids to sign stuff has many positive benefits. Not the least of which is letting them know you take them seriously.

    I used to make my students sign a sheet saying when and for how long they were going to practice that week. Helped a lot with most of them.

    Worked everyday of the last pay period at work because I wanted to make some extra money, and to see how much it was possible for me to make in a pay period (ended up being 17 days straight of working). Got paid today and it was actually pretty decent. :D

    Aye, grown up sign things... little do they know that adults often renege on those things haha.

    I'm working on the pride method for practise: recognising vocally when they're doing well. Even the tiniest little thing. "Woo, I did well! **pridepridepridepride** I should play more as I'm so good!"
