I think my general timing has improved because i've stopped caring so much about impressing people with flashy playing constantly, I think a more relaxed approach has helped me better realise my creative visions as well as my playing.
Raise the bar on your expectations? Any suggestions on how?
I think The Astral Traveller marks the start of me as a musician, if that makes sense. It's the first song I've been completely happy with and comfortable enough with to put out to an audience. I have 3 other songs that I finished not long before that one actually, but they aren't full recordings and you'll have to wait till May to hear them (looking in to getting my gig recorded).
