Ten Thousand Miles – Day 10
It’s been 10 days now since I’ve started this journey and today I changed one of the categories. From “creative notes” to “arts appreciation.” Creative notes, I only do very seldom, only during starting new songs, and actually is part of my whole music creation process which already is among the list. Arts appreciation is one of my most loved daily activity, and not always music, usually it’s on painting and drawing arts appreciation.
Someone may wonder why paintings? My main reason is that every time I start creating music, I create pictures and images of an emotional event or story or scene in my mind, then I begin painting them using music.

Currently working on a second album, bit slow. Just finished my 4th Track.

I love collecting motivational videos from great and inspiring teachers.
Here’s one of my favorite; “How to do your best work – 3 keys to mastery by Robin Sharma.”
Today’s Featured Musician is Guitar Legend Jeff Beck.
Geoffrey Arnold “Jeff” Beck (born 24 June 1944) is an English rock guitarist. He is one of the three noted guitarists to have played with The Yardbirds (the other two being Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page). Beck also formed The Jeff Beck Group and Beck, Bogert & Appice.
Much of Beck’s recorded output has been instrumental, with a focus on innovative sound, and his releases have spanned genres ranging from blues rock, heavy metal, jazz fusion and an additional blend of guitar-rock and electronica. Although he recorded two hit albums (in 1975 and 1976) as a solo act, Beck has not established or maintained the sustained commercial success of many of his contemporaries and bandmates. Beck appears on albums by Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, Morrissey, Jon Bon Jovi, Malcolm McLaren, Kate Bush, Roger Waters, Donovan, Stevie Wonder, Les Paul, Zucchero, Cyndi Lauper, Brian May, Stanley Clarke and ZZ Top.
He was ranked 5th in Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and the magazine has described him as “one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock”. MSNBC has called him a “guitarist’s guitarist”. Beck has earned wide critical praise and received the Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance six times and Best Pop Instrumental Performance once. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice: as a member of the Yardbirds (1992) and as a solo artist (2009). – From Wikipedia.
