What a great day to be a sports fan. Lots of great NFL games, the PGA Playoffs and USA Basketball is playing Turkey in the World Basketball Championships. Durant vs. Turgolu. Also a good day to catch up my recording and mixing. I’m hoping to have Vol. 3 of the 365 greatest hits sent off tomorrow. I’ve really gotten behind on those.
Anyway, I asked Adair for a topic this morning as I was walking out to the studio and this is what popped out of that. I hope you’re having a great Sunday. Thanks for listening!
We all tend to speculate about the future or about what might happen in certain situations. That’s fine with me, it’s just when you start to over-speculate or just repeat the same things over and over that I get annoyed.
I personally try not to speculate at all and just focus on the task at hand when the time comes. That helps me to remain more in the present moment instead of thinking about the future or the past all the time. I used to do that a lot and have found it unproductive.
That’s kind of what ‘Speculation’ is about. This is also the first song I’ve done with my new Tube Screamer, a pedal I’ve been meaning to buy for years. Now if I could just get my amp back from the shop I’d be set.
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
