Back to music

(Because the first draft of this entry was written in English, I'm sorry to post this written in English.)



Two months have passed since I started to study music again.
I'm very enjoying myself every day.





It had been passed one and half year since I quit studying music, stop playing the guitar and had started to concentrate on studying technologies on the Internet.
The reason of my quitting was mainly by my laziness.
I gave up to create any songs and stop listening to any songs to forget them.




Time had passed very quickly, and I had experienced many things as the engineer in the very hopeful venture company.
In the time, I kept writing many scripts and learning as much as I can every day from the people I have respects as a beginner of the engineering.





I took a long vacation in September of this year after my project settled in.
In this vacation, I intended to refresh myself and start learning new things.
In fact, I could refresh myself in this vacation, and became want to have another work that I can commit after I come back to home from my day job.





The first catalyst of thinking again about music was inspired by my new colleague from Australia.
He joined our company as a designer in October of this year.

He can look everything with great open mind.
He receives everything as they are, and response to them very flexible.
He can do job very quickly and very creatively.
I was very amazed to his ability and influenced his attitude toward the world.

Also, he is a music junkie.
He has organized the songs from his early stage.
His music library is very huge. (Over 700G !!)
Incredible...
He allowed me to access his music library, and I started to listening to many songs.
It's a great experience to know the many songs and considering about structure of them.





The news also encouraged me.
Flea Uses Red Hot Chili Peppers Hiatus To Go Back To School

I was very amazed from the news.
Flea is a great musician and I respect his attitude toward the music.
He has kept learning as much as he can from session, live, recordings, songs and his life.
He always has the many ideas most of which are inspired by his leanings.
He has an very amazing balance between input and output.

At last, his enthusiasms to the music brought him to kick the entrance of the college. It encouraged me very much.





I got together with a new band and started to go to the studio.
It needs to me practice the guitar to bring my playing ability to the same level when I quit, but it's very fun.

Recently, I have joined to a new band fortunately, and started to play the bass guitar.
To me, it opened a new door.
It made me have a motivation to know how instruments work together to create a beautiful flow of the music, and how base lines support the music.

I want to keep motivating myself.
I hope I'll never give up studying again.
To accomplish this, I was introducing the disciplines:
  1. Listening as many songs as I can listen to.
  2. Keep an open mind to the others and to the world.
    I take care not judging others but just receiving as they are, and find the positive things as many as I can.
  3. Keep studying music.I use all the techniques I learned from WWW community to learn music effectively.






I want the friends who can co-write with me or can play with me.
Please contact me:


I'm now admiring all the musicians in the world and loving all songs.
I appreciate very much to the people who brought me back.
I'll do my best.




Thank you for your reading.
