Trying not to lose track

Sometimes it seems difficult not too loose control. For example I’m happy, that so many interesting musicians joined my simple guitar tracks and added their talent via virtual jam sessions. But how to find those highlights fast – and not forget? By an A to Z order? Using a cloud which chronologically lists all the uploads? Or writing a little resume on my wordpress blog? Let’s try – with focus on the musicians who participated – and the sound design as a typical result, not with focus on the song titles…

    I never thought that I would live to hear the term “virtual jam sessions”. The world has become so accessible. This is good, I think …. 😀
