Back in the Zone!

 

Hey everyone, it’s been awhile since my last post but I’ve made up for it with a lot of new content! All of that content I’m talking about is for my YouTube channel which is now officially: www.youtube.com/thekronedog

So here’s the deal. The reason why I shut down Kronedog Productions was due to my decreasing interest in making gaming videos. As much as I love video games, music is my real passion in life and nothing can take its place. I’ve had so many people encourage me to actually put myself out there with my guitar/music so now I’m doing just that!

I’m currently working on a few projects for the YouTube channel including my own original songs, live cover videos of popular guitar heavy songs, and to top it off, free guitar lessons! I believe I have a very solid grip on the instrument and I want to help others achieve their goals now on guitar. The plan is to continue releasing a new video every week, so expect that! Next week I’m doing another cover video like the Canon Rock above, and also a Vlog.

I’m extremely excited about all of this and I’m motivated to put out the best quality videos possible and of course, blow your minds with some good ole rock guitar!!!!

I also want to make note that I won’t be blogging much anymore, at least on this blog. I do appreciate everyone who read and enjoyed my articles from the past 4-5 months. It means a lot to me since writing is another passion of mine. I’m really just using this blog to post updates until my official website goes up (www.thekronedog.com) which I reserved a section of it’s own to continue where I left off from this blog. So that’s that. Hope you all enjoy the video above!

Kronedog Jamathon #2

Sweet Child O’ Mine cover – Guns N’ Roses

 

Here’s the Kronedog Jamathon #2 as promised! I was originaly going post a different jam video of just some random soloing and riffs, but I found this vid I recorded about a year ago that I wanted to share with the world. Slash, the lead guitarist of Guns N’ Roses is one of my biggest influences of all time so I found it fitting to share that with my viewers. Hope you enjoy the video!

On a sidenote, new “Enlighten Me” blog article tomorrow right here on this page!

Enlighten Me: Finding Your Passion

Enlighten Me

Finding Your Passion

Every week Kronedog talks about random topics expanding from real life experiences, book reviews, Q&A’s, Events, latest news, and discussion topics to get one thinking.

The Instrument

The guitar is a very special object/instrument to me and has been for over seven years. I’d also have to say I’ve dedicated more time to this instrument then anything else in life. When I first picked up the guitar, I was awful. Just horrible, I can’t really even begin to explain the frustrations I had learning to pick the correct strings. I wanted to bring this up because like anything in life, if you put your absolute most into something, there will be a nice return on the flip side. When I began playing, I had one goal in mind at the time: To be the best guitarist ever. Now, while things have certainly changed since I made that goal, it was the driving factor that helped me accelerate the learning process. This can go for anything. When you put your passion into something you will accomplish much greater things because your effort is where it counts. So if you’re putting all your time and dedication into something like learning an instrument, a school project, relationship, business deal, etc… you WILL reap the benefits.

How Your Passion Relates to the Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction suggests that we attract everything into our lives, good and bad. So it would make sense when you’re passionate about something you’re going to attract similar people and things to you in correlation to whatever it is you’re passionate on. For example, when I began playing guitar, it overtook my life. The only thing I wanted was to be a better player, and explore the world of music. In return I was given the opportunity to go further with my dream and all my friends were on the same wavelength as me. When I made music and guitar the center of my life, everything else followed. Before I knew it I was at various concerts, playing in a band, had a group of friends all into the same music, and to top it all off, I was becoming quite good at guitar.

Losing the Spark

Just because you may have found that “thing” you love the most in life, doesn’t mean that fire will continue to burn brightly without your attention. I’ve experienced this exactly when my interest in guitar began to die about a year and a half ago. I was in the United States Army working as a Cavalry Scout and during my time in service, I let go of my dream. I began to stop caring and the once mighty fire became nothing but a small dying flame. It wasn’t until I was able to get my hands on a guitar for the first time in what seemed like years until I was able to bring the fire back to life. Through encouragement from others I picked the instrument and began improving my skills to the point where I had reached a whole new level of playing. It was a life lesson that I figured out way later. It is entirely possible to regain your passion(s) and go even further than you’ve ever imagined.

When someone tells you have a gift for something, don’t ignore them. Take all compliments in a humble manner because you definitely don’t want your ego to ruin a great thing.

Whats Your Skill?

I’m just curious to know what your skills are? What in life are you good at and you know you’re good at it? It’s good to dive into personal talents and explore them because you may be much more capable then you think. I know this rings true for me with the guitar example. When I started there were plenty of people who told me I should have just quit. I took that as motivation to prove them wrong which helped out even more in the long run.

It’s also entirely possible that you haven’t found that “thing” in life which is fine too. Don’t rush it because it will come to you in due time. The Law of Attraction isn’t known for being fast but if you focus on it, it will come.
