I’ve got a confession to make…brace yourself

Today’s episode may come as a surprise to you. I confess a deep, dark, secret on the show. As a listener of the podcast, you have a right to know. I’m prepared to accept the necessary punishment for my jazz crimes.

Listen to episode 277

I’ve got a deep, dark bombshell confession I have to make to you. 

It’s something I’ve avoided trying to tell you for a very long time but I have to come clean. 

I know that you may not think of me the same way after hearing this news, but the truth is, you must know, after all, you listen to my podcast to learn jazz from me and if I can’t be honest about this thing, then what can I be honest with you about?

I just have to tell you the truth… I haven’t practiced my guitar.

  1. Likewise, moving house has caused me to put my three guitars into hibernation…. for months!
    Sometimes life gets in the way!
    Sometimes it’s good to go with that flow, instead of trying to force a square peg into a round hole;
    I’m not beating myself up about it, because I already have enough on my plate. An important topic Brent!

  2. Loved this Brent. I have just had similar experiences . After having been heavily in volved with house renovation . I felt guilt for desertlng my beloved sax. How ever we are back to gether with a new and better reationship. Cheers Edward.
