I can't bitch and moan about this enough! My sons and ab out four people at work are loving it as well. My favorite drone is the Lunar Module. Having grown up during Apollo, living next door to an electrical engineer on the LM whose sons were my best friends, there are few icons that come close to t...

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Saw it at an Alamo, so the periodic arrival of pints of beer made it even better. Luke is such a great character. But the reincarnation scene was pretty unforgivable.

If you want something different to do Saturday, my friends from Brooklyn Raga Massive are fucking amazing. And they're playing at 1:00 at Yerba Buena Gardens (Mission St. between 3rd & 4th Sts., SF) https://ybgfestival.org/event/brooklyn-raga-massive/

Re: Song Fight! Live 2017 Musician Exchange

I could also join the Roymond chorus, but you might not want me to: I do almost all of the backing vocals for Jerkatorium, but more often than not when I do a vocal track that I thought I'd nailed, I end up listening back in bewildered horror to find that I was way, way off pitch. So yeah, if quant...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2017 Musician Exchange

I have one song in mind that would really love a choral treatment, so I will likely reach out for those who can harmonize freely. I'll prepare lyrics, fake sheet and a mix to listen to in lieu of a rehearsal. I am available to play guitar or bass at least Saturday night. I am hoping to get there Thu...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2017 Berkeley CA 15-16 September (CONFIRMED!)

I'm in.
I'll need a Saturday slot as I will likely be arriving late Friday night.
Unless I negotiate another day off, which isn't out of the question.
I should prolly come prepared for a solo set without need for rehearsals.
But also available if someone needs me Saturday night.

Re: Track sequencing

Tons of albums aren't sequenced by the artist, it's the mastering engineer. I can't speak to many modern releases, but the artistry of sequencing many an album made them work well beyond being a collection of single songs. Synergy.

Re: 04/05/2017 I bought a mandoloncello.

I have an electric kazoo, a palm pick-up, a cute mouth harp I bought from a Red Dzao girl in Vietnam. Maybe I need to record a song with just these items.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame - worth a visit?

It seems pretty cheesy, but it's rock & roll, after all. And Cleveland (kidding!). Who has been there and would you recommend a visit?
